Netflix has released the first trailer for The Babysitter: Killer Queen, a sequel to the gory good time that was 2017’s The Babysitter. This…also looks like a gory good time! The film picks up two years after Cole (Judah Lewis) survived a night in which a Satanic cult, led by his babysitter Bee (Samara Weaving), tried to sacrifice him to the devil.
Seeing as how The Babysitter was a straight-up star-making performance, Weaving not returning for the sequel is a bummer. (Although the trailer does tease some kind of return.) But The Babysitter was one of the most surprising movies of 2017, a genuinely delightful horror-comedy with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. Here’s to hoping the sequel can at least match the chaos of the original, if not the exact cast.
The Babysitter: Killer Queen is once again directed by McG, who also co-wrote the script with Dan Lagana and Brad Morris & Jimmy Warden, based on characters created by Brian Duffield.
Check out the trailer below, followed by the official poster. The Babysitter: Killer Queen is set to debut on Netflix on September 10. For more on the film, here’s the official art that came with the title reveal.
Here is the official synopsis for The Babysitter: Killer Queen:
Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee, Cole continues to be haunted by the horrific events of that night. Everyone in his life thinks he has lost his mind since Bee and all of her friends disappeared, making Cole’s story hard to believe. He is still hopelessly smitten with his best friend and next door neighbor Melanie – the only one who believes his story – who convinces him to forget the past and come to a party thrown at a nearby lake. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil and survive the night.
