The Babysitter (2017, 85 minutes)

Home Alone meets horror in this dark comedy. Starring the modern scream queen Samara Weaving, The Babysitter is a hilarious horror movie that doesn’t take itself seriously and is a good mood changer while being filled with gore. It’s purposefully goofy, and the comedy is rather dark. It’s not a fit for everyone, but it still keeps you watching. The Babysitter is one of the finest satire films created.
