Netflix is handing out tons of treats this Halloween season as they’ve now dated  McG’s The Babysitter to hit their streaming service on Friday, October 13th.

The star of the film is Bella Thorne, who also stars in Dimension Films’ long-delayed Amityville: The Awakening.

The movie also stars Robbie Amell, Samara Weaving, Andrew Bachelor, Hana Mae Lee, and Judah LewisTerminator Salvation‘s McG directed from Brian Duffield’s script, which received top placement on the 2014 Blacklist.

David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” series hits the streaming service on the same day, with Stephen King’s 1922 arriving on October 20th and “Stranger Things” Season 2 debuting October 27th.



  • Is it possible to have a trailer?! I’m kind of interested in the project but i can’t stand anymore that old pic…

  • venerablemonster

    It’s a nice reversal for Netflix who have, in the past, actively removed halloween and horror for the month of October.

    Has McG ever made a good movie? Looking through his IMDB I’d say no but it looks like he has had some success with TV. I’m indifferent to Supernatural but that show has been on forever so people must love it.

      Nope, he’s awful. Tbh supernatural is kinda trashy but the cast make it work rather than his directing

    • Matt Graupman

      It’s probably not objectively “good” but I’ll stand by McG’s short-lived Fox series “Fastlane” any day. It was a ridiculous and ridiculously fun show, while it lasted.

  • McG destroyed the Terminator franchise with Terminator: Salvation! So I’ll watch this movie with low expectations.

    • The chicken man

      I think I’m the only person in the world who loved that movie. 🙂

      • hahaha, I understand you because I enjoyed Terminator Genisys 🙂

        • The chicken man

          Me too! So much I originally watched it twice back to back. Lol.

          • The movie isn’t amazing, but in my opinion is a good blockbuster. I don’t understand the hate!

      • J Jett

        chicken man, i too liked T:SALVATION. 🙂

      • MulderIsBack

        I loved salvation. Gritty and enjoyable.

  • Definitely intrigued, but with low expectations

    Sounds great.

    You’d think those in a “Satanic cult” would have a better fashion sense.
