Over the last 20 years, McG has directed nine movies in a variety of genres and spent over a billion dollars of studio money on production costs, and yet his entire career has been characterized by mediocrity. Admittedly, the man born Joseph McGinty Nicol has attempted to diversify his output in recent years, but the overwhelming majority of his work is standard genre fare that could be described as passable at best and dismal at worst.
In the two decades since he made his feature debut with Charlie’s Angels, only one of McG’s directorial efforts has managed to secure a Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and that was 2017’s Netflix horror comedy The Babysitter. The acclaim from audiences and critics alike would indicate that the filmmaker is much better off working with lower budgets and tackling different stories than the tedious action fare he’s usually associated with, and the 52 year-old will be hoping that lightning strikes twice now that sequel The Babysitter: Killer Queen is available to stream.
Admittedly, reviews haven’t been as kind the second time around, with the pic holding a disappointing Rotten Tomatoes score of 27%, but subscribers seem to be enjoying it a whole lot more, and the audience score is currently sitting at 78%. Fans have been taking to social media to let their feelings on The Babysitter: Killer Queen be known as well, and you can check out some of the reactions below.

I still CANNOT believe Netflix made a " The Babysitter " aka The Babysitter: Killer Queen BUT! It was so quirky and funny! Some throwbacks too the first one and so good!

The Babysitter: Killer Queen had some funny moments and some very gory and holy-shit-kills. It was as much fun as the first film. #Netflix

I LOVED The Babysitter: Killer Queen! It was kinda different and sillier than the first one but in a very fun way. The twists were great and totally unexpected. One of the greatest horror comedies in the last few years and I highly recommend it! #TheBabysitterKillerQueen #Netflix pic.twitter.com/6us0W9l7V3
