When high school freshman Kelly Ferguson reluctantly agrees to babysit on Halloween, she is recruited into a secret society of babysitters who protect kids with special powers from monsters. Based on the popular book series, A Babysitter’s Guide To Monster Hunting will premiere on October 15th only on Netflix.
The movie is based on the first installment of Joe Ballarini‘s book series of the same name, with Ballarini handling the screenplay as well. There are three books total, so who knows – maybe Netflix will make some sequels if this thing gets enough viewers. The other two books are called A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting #2: Beasts & Geeks, and A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting #3: Mission to Monster Island.
This Netflix adaptation comes from director Rachel Talalay, with Ivan Reitman and Amie Karp producing, and with Naia Cucukov, Tom Pollock, and Ilona Herzberg executive producing. The full cast includes Tamara Smart, Oona Laurence, Alessio Scalzotto, Ian Ho, Tamsen McDonough, Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson, Lynn Masako Cheng, Ty Consiglio, Ashton Arbab, Crystal Balint, Ricky He, with Indya Moore and Tom Felton.
