A satanic cult meets spin-the-bottle in the trailer for Netflix’s “The Babysitter,” directed by McG (“Charlie’s Angels”) and starring Samara Weaving and Bella Thorne. The high-school comedy-horror film revolves around a sweet 12-year old boy (Judah Lewis) in love with his babysitter (Thorne). When Cole stays up to spy on Allison and her friends playing a hot-and-heavy game of spin-the-bottle, things take a violent turn.

It’s the first movie directed by McG since “3 Days to Kill” in 2014, as the “Charlie’s Angels” director has been more focused on his career as a TV producer (“Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” and “Lethal Weapon”). According to Variety, “The Babysitter” was financed by McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision. After production, the film was acquired by Netflix from Newline for big money in the high-seven to low-eight-dollar range.

The film will be available to Netflix subscribers on Friday the 13th of October. Watch the trailer below:
