What the what?!
Did that kid just show up on a motorcycle while baby wearing a baby?!! Haha! (What kind of baby carrier was it?) This was my first reaction to the trailer for the new movie, A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, releasing to Netflix on October 15, 2020. My next reaction was excitement for seeing Tom Felton. Haha! While I am not a huge scary movie fan A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting is right up my alley. It looks like there is going to be lots of action, scares, and laughs.
The movie definitely gives off The Labyrinth, Beetlejuice, and Goosebumps movie vibes and I am here for it. While my kids will probably not watch it, they are a little too young, I am very interested to see how this movie turns out. (It is being adapted from a book series which I love!) Have you seen the trailer for A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting yet? If not you can watch it below! Let me know your thoughts!
When high school freshman Kelly Ferguson (Tamara Smart) reluctantly agrees to babysit Jacob Zellman (Ian Ho) on Halloween, the last thing she expects is to be recruited into an international secret society of babysitters who protect kids with special powers from monsters. In order to keep Jacob safe from harm, Kelly teams with no-nonsense chapter Vice President Liz Lerue (Oona Laurence), tech genius Berna Vincent (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson), creature expert Cassie Zhen (Lynn Masako Cheng) and potions master Curtis Critter (Ty Consiglio) to defeat a Boogeyman known as “The Grand Guignol” (Tom Felton), a glamorous witch named “Peggy Drood” (Indya Moore) and their legion of mysterious monsters.
Based on the first installment of Joe Ballarini’s popular scary book series of the same name, A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting is directed by Rachel Talalay, produced by Ivan Reitman and Amie Karp, with Naia Cucukov, Tom Pollock, and Ilona Herzberg executive producing. Alessio Scalzotto, Tamsen McDonough, Ashton Arbab, Crystal Balint, and Ricky He also co-star in this action-packed adventure about working together to overcome your fears.
