New Netflix film The Babysitter: Killer Queen, starring Bella Thorne, has been described by viewers as the 'scariest move' on the streaming platform. You can watch the trailer here:

The sequel to 2017's The Babysitter dropped today (Thursday 10 September) and features Judah Lewis, Hana Mae Lee, Robbie Amell, Emily Alyn Lind and Samara Weaving alongside Thorne.

A synopsis of the comedy-horror reads: "Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee [Weaving], Cole [Lewis] 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 neighbour Melanie [Lind] - the only one who believes his story - who convinces him to forget the past and come to a party thrown at a nearby lake.

Some people think it's the scariest film on Netflix. Others think it's just rubbish.

"But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil and survive the night."

A tale as old as time right there.

Judging by the immediate response on Twitter though, you might be best off giving it a miss if you don't like your films too gory:

The film has been less well received by many critics though, with TV Guide describing it as 'just plain embarrassing'.

The review reads: "Gory horror-comedies with half-baked plots can actually be quite entertaining if they are at least well-shot and well-written. This sequel to the borderline-decent 2017 Netflix original The Babysitter is neither of these things."

So I guess your enjoyment of The Babysitter: Killer Queen will depend on what you're in the mood for. If you want to be gripped by drama, moved to tears or fascinated by great storytelling, this probably isn't for you. If you want to see hot people covered in blood spatter while making silly jokettes, look no further.
