The Kids Aren't Alright In Trailer For Netflix's The Babysitter

Spooktober is now here with gusto, friends, so throw open some windows, unlock those doors, invite in a few strangers, and let's get down to some brutal killings—exclusively on Netflix.

The streaming service has just released the first trailer for its kinetic human sacrifice horror The Babysitter, and boy, does it look like a night to remember. 

Centering on the dynamic between the younger kids being watched over and the babysitter and her friends causing trouble in an empty home, the movie at first appears to be an exploration of adolescence, and growing up. 

Everyone remembers staying up late to see what the "grown-ups" were doing, playing spin-the-bottle, staging little rebellions, maybe having some schnapps and a sloppy makeout sesh. 

But few people have ever had to experience the absolute bacchanal of blood and carnage this babysitter begins to unleash once she's got the kids in bed and the house to herself. Unable to contact their parents, the kids will have to find a way to survive the night before they end up bleeding out for human sacrifice.

Directed by McG, the awkward-monikered filmmaker behind Chuck, Supernatural and Terminator: Salvation (the fourth one), The Babysitter looks like a campy, ridiculously gory good time for anyone who remembers those rare moments as a child when you got the run of the house, and anything seemed possible. 

The Babysitter stars Bella Thorne, Hana Mae Lee, Leslie Bibb, Robbie Amell, Samara Weaving, Andrew Bachelor, Doug Haley, and Judah Lewis. It will premiere on Netflix on October 13.
