Netflix’s The Babysitter: Killer Queen is a sequel to 2017’s The Babysitter, directed by McG. He returns for the second film, along with most of the cast. Two years have passed on the fictional timeline, although it’s been three years since the first movie debuted, in which Cole (Judah Lewis) was 12, but now he’s driving a car, so its confusing already. Cole is now in high school, which he says is worse than a near-death experience. Now, he’s still a dorkus malorkus, evident by the corduroy suit he wears to school, and he’s still friends with Melanie (Emily Alyn Lind), the girl across the street. Anyway, the house is fixed after Cole quite spectacularly drove a car into it at the end of the first movie. Insanity? Yes – the universe is gas lighting Cole, as any evidence of his babysitter’s numerous malfeasance doesn’t exist, and therefore, he must have hallucinated the whole thing. He finds out his parents (Leslie Bibb and Ken Marino) want to have him committed, so he is just all twisted up. The day of his appointment with the mental hospital, she steals her dad’s and they ditch school, heading to a party on the lake. Cue the splatter works as Cole and Phoebe scamper away, trying to avoid being sacrificed to the cacodaemons of the netherworlds.
