The movie managed to impress cbr.com. The publication wrote in its review, " The Babysitter: Killer Queen is even more fun than its predecessor, largely because it takes bigger, more self-aware chances and manages to stick the landing more often than not. This is a movie that knows exactly what it is and embraces it with gruesome glee, resulting in another bloody rollercoaster ride that rises above conventional genre constraints for a cinematic cocktail that is sure to thrill fans of '80s cinema"
Ready Steady Cut was no impressed by the film, as they wrote, "The Babysitter: Killer Queen does prove that with a content-driven world, there will always be a need for a sequel, even if it does not make sense." Pornhub Director Bella Thorne Called 'Liar' & a 'Scam Artist' by Sex Worker & Youtuber Trisha Paytas Who Accused Her of 'Cash Grabbing' on the XXX Platform.
Impressed by it, Heaven of Horror called the sequel sillier. "As a horror fan, you will catch a lot more of the pop culture references than anyone else. That’s a special treat for genre fans for sure," they wrote.
Tecchquila.com called the movie a disappointment. "The Babysitter: Killer Queen tries to live off of the well-deserved popularity of the first movie that does not work in its favour. There’s nothing genuine or fun about it, and it thus drags a lot, even at 102 minutes. And the dialogues are probably the worst part of this sequel. All-in-all, quite the disappointment," the publication said.
TV Guide also panned the movie, "Gory horror-comedies with half-baked plots can actually be quite entertaining if they are at least well-shot and well-written. This sequel to the borderline-decent 2017 Netflix original The Babysitter is neither of these things."
