"More Devilish Encounters"
What You Need To Know:
THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN is better made with a stronger, more positive ending than the first BABYSITTER movie. However, although it has some positive Christian, moral content, it’s still plagued by occult, demonic content and false theology, constant foul language, extreme violence, and strong sexual content. For these reasons, MOVIEGUIDE® labels the BABYSITTER sequel, KILLER QUEEN, abhorrent.
A Netflix original movie, THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN picks up two years later as Cole, now a teenager, has become pegged as a social outcast and encounters more Devil worshippers from an unexpected source. KILLER QUEEN is better made with a stronger, more positive ending than the first BABYSITTER movie, but it’s still plagued by occult, demonic content and false theology, constant foul language, extreme violence, and strong sexual content.
Two years after the events in the first movie, KILLER QUEEN opens with Cole, now a young teenager pouring a late-night glass of milk. As he pours, the milk turns to blood. When his father enters the room, Cole realizes he’s just having another nightmare from his past experience fighting his former Devil-worshipping babysitter, Bee.
Cut to the following day at school. Cole and his friend, Melanie, talk outside school about his past experience, and how she’s the only one who believes what happened to him. That night of the first attack, all the bodies disappeared. So, people think he’s basically losing his mind and making everything up, deeming him a social outcast.
In one of Cole and Melanie’s classes that day, a new girl is introduced as Phoebe. Phoebe seems aggressive and rude. Melanie and Cole chat in the hallway about Phoebe. Melanie tries to convince Cole to go to the lake the next day with her and her friends, but Cole passes.
The next morning before school, Cole searches for his school paper and finds a brochure for a psychiatric academy, where his parents are taking him later that day. When Cole arrives at school, he tells Melanie about it. So, when Cole’s parents arrive at school during lunch to take him away, Cole, Melanie and a few of her friends ditch class and head to the lake.
Later that evening on Melanie’s boyfriend’s houseboat, the crew plays Spin the Bottle. The bottle points to Cole, and he and Melanie have a steamy make-out session in the closet. When they come out, one of the guys starts pressing Cole about the experience he had with his beautiful but demonic babysitter.
Suddenly, Melanie becomes furious and stabs one of her friends. It turns out that Melanie had signed the Devil’s book from Bee, the killer babysitter, and now she and her friends need Cole’s innocent blood again. At the same time, all the people who died in the previous movie come back to life after spending two years in “Limbo,” waiting for the opportunity to finish the ritual using Cole’s blood.
The blood cult Devil worshippers are ready to kill Cole, but when Phoebe opens the door looking for gas for her jet ski, she sees what they’ve done. Phoebe and Cole flee, now having to find a way to stay alive until the sun rises.
THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN is an above average sequel to THE BABYSITTER. New plotlines and characters are introduced, but they are pretty well intertwined with old characters where everything makes sense in the end. The actors do well in their roles, but the unbelievable way everyone dies is extremely graphic. There’s also some cringe-worthy moments sparking a romance between Cole and Phoebe, the two social outcasts.
KILLER QUEEN has a mixed pagan worldview with strong occult elements containing strong false theology. The Devil worshippers want to use a blood ritual involving human sacrifice to get their hearts desire. Also, dead people return to life from Limbo to finish a blood ritual they started in the first movie. The movie’s occult rituals and false theology are mitigated by some Christian, moral elements. For example, the two teenage heroes risk their lives to save one another from the evil Devil worshippers. Also, before he dies, a villain accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Despite this, THE BABYSITTER: KILLER QUEEN is plagued by constant foul language, extreme violence and strong sexual content, along with the occult content. For these reasons, MOVIEGUIDE® labels KILLER QUEEN abhorrent.
