The Babysitter

I was not sure what to expect from the Babysitter. It popped up on Netfix and some podcasts I listen to were reviewing it in upcoming episodes.

It has a slow open, but then it hits the fan.

Cole is a 12-year old with a babysitter. He is also picked on. a lot. He has 2 bright sides, he is friends with the cute girl across the street, Melanie, and his babysitter, Bee, treats him like a person.

Melanie goads Cole into staying up and seeing if Bee sneaks her boyfriend over after he goes to bed. According to her, that’s what all babysitters do.

Not Bee.

At first, Cole is looking at the beginnings of a promising game of spin-the-bottle. Right up until one of the participants is killed and has his blood collected.

The rest of the movie is a horror version of Home Alone as Cole is hunted by the party-goers.

The Babysitter is a Netflix original.

Starring: Judah Lewis, Samara Weaving, Robbie Amell, Hana Mae Lee, Bella Thorne, Emily Alyn Lind, Andrew Bachelor, Doug Haley, Leslie Bibb, Ken Marino

Karate Kill



Karate Kill is a fun, low budget martial arts film from Kurando Mitsutake, the Director of Gun Woman.

Kenji is working multiple jobs in Japan and sending money to his sister, Mayumi. He goes a month without hearing from her and heads to the US to find her. This leads to Kenji fighting his way from California to Texas, and finding out the fate of his sister.

I highly recommend that you watch this movie. It is available on Video on Demand and on bluray and dvd. The bluray comes with a soundtrack cd.

Starring: Hayate, Asami, Mana Sakura, Katarina Leigh Waters, Kirk Geiger, David Sakurai
