The Night Sitter (2018)

Executive produced by Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick, The Night Sitter has plenty of style and neon color on display. Its trailer is incredibly effective, so I’d been waiting to see this for some time.

Amber (Elyse Dufour, Frankie from The Walking Dead) is a con artist posing as a babysitter to steal from a wealthy occult lover. However, she finds herself growing closet to his son Kevin, who has become a recluse after the death of his mother.

Speaking of mothers, this movie’s villains are known as the Three Mothers, an obvious homage to Argento. This film takes that one step further and emulates Suspiria‘s neon colors. Other reviews are claiming this movie is a tribute to giallo, but let’s be honest. This is closer to Evil Dead than that genre. It’s just lazy reviewing, because you can debate if Argento’s Three Mothers films are even giallo and are instead horror (you can also take me to task for not using gialli as the plural form if you want to take it even further).

The Night Sitter is now available on DVD and on demand.

DISCLAIMER: We were sent this movie by its PR company. That has no impact on our review.
