Cole (Judah Lewis) loves his babysitter (Samara Weaving) Bee. She's hot, funny, and popular. One night, in a moment of defiance, Cole secretly stays up past his bedtime to discover she's actually a cold-blooded killer who's in league with the Devil. He now must spend his night evading Bee's band of killers who will stop at nothing to prevent Cole from spilling their dark secret. It's up to Cole to survive the night (and blow up a few people along the way).

I liked this one. Normally I'd be critical of films of this nature but they have done a good job with this one, ticking all the boxes and ensuring that 'it does what it says on the tin'
Its a fairly simple plot with a twist delivered as two fairly separate themes within the story and its done really well. You have no idea what's coming and when it does it's a little silly, but still exciting and enjoyable.
Its an entertaining film and I couldn't really ask for much more from the fairly able production team. The two leads are superb and have great presence on screen. Judah Lewis is excellent, I hope to see more of him, and Samara Weaving is also fantastic. Aside from Andrew Bachelor who's performance is below par the rest of the cast is pretty good.
Another good production from Netflix who don't always get it right. There's no excess here but they've done very well with all the details that mattered. OK, its a little cheesy. There are some good chuckles to be had but no belly laughs or LOL's. The effects for the most part are a poor rendition of old school horror, but its a throwback to horror from the 80's so works well if a little camp.
Definitely worth a watch, on an idle Friday night.
Hillariously Cheesy Slasher Comedy
This is exactly what a good Halloween prank should look like. A little bit of gore, a little bit of T&A, outrageously stereotypical high school kids, and nothing in the way of a plot to worry about.
That's not to say it's not extremely successful at what it aspires to: good, silly fun for Halloween.
Completely self-aware of all the slasher films it mimics, and more than able to mine the comedy in those memes, this film is just a hoot. Not anywhere near as serious as the Scream franchise tries to be with the horror/slasher genre, this film takes the opposite tact: remember that these films are for fun and a bit of escapism.
A soft PG-13 would be the MPAA rating for this if it wasn't Netflix, and it's appropriate for your tweens. But if you're in your 30s or 40s, it's gonna be a lot more enjoyable, since you know and recognize all the tropes at play, but know that the filmmakers know and are just letting you have fun watching them play out.
I hope the three leads get more good work out of this, because they all do a fabulous job with the material - there's not a lot to work with, but each of the three (the babysitter, boy kid, and his bestie girl) give you a good show and don't fall into the trap that this film could easily have done: there's not a scenery chewer among them, and they all do a great job of keeping their eye on the prize: a silly, fun, bit nostalgic, Halloween slasher.

Good Halloween movie when you don't really want to be scared
It's not scary so if that's what you want skip this one. But it was a fun movie with a good amount of blood, some tension & excitement and a fun story. It should probably be seen as a horror/comedy, not just a horror. It's kind of like the horror movie your mom would have let you watch when you were 12. Well I guess nowadays parents let their kids watch Freddy & Jason at 5, but think back to the 70s or 80s, in fact my mom probably wouldn't have let me watch it because of the amount of blood & guts. It does have some terrific kills, original for sure! I did think it was well done for what it was, acting was decent, production was good. The pacing was gold! No lulls in this. From the get go you care about this kid and whats going to happen to him. The poor underdog that we all want to see come out on top. I'd give it an 8 of 10.
