Trailer Drops For ‘A Babysitter’s Guide To Monster Hunting’

The Netflix version of the popular (and spooky) A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting novel will hit the small screen next month–in plenty of time to deliver Halloween chills.

The first book in the three-volume series–published in 2017 from author Joe Ballarini and illustrator Vivienne To–has been adapted for Netflix and will premiere Oct. 15, as reported by comicbook.com. And, to sweeten the pot, a trailer for the film can be viewed below.

The adaptation–written by Ballarini and directed by Rachel Talalay (Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare)–is based on the book that has been described as “The Last Kids on Earth meets Goosebumps.”

The film, as expounded on in the official synopsis, follows high school freshman Kelly Ferguson (Tamara Smart) as she agrees to babysit Jacob Zellman (Ian Ho) on Halloween. But, the last thing she expected “is to be recruited into an international secret society of babysitters who protect kids with special powers from monsters.”

Kelly soon teams up with society vice president Liz Lerue (Oona Laurence), tech genius Berna Vincent (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson), creature expert Cassie Zhen (Lynn Masako Cheng) and potions master Curtis Critter (Ty Consiglio) “to defeat a boogeyman known as The Grand Guignol (Tom Felton), a glamorous witch named Peggy Drood (Indya Moore) and their legion of mysterious monsters.”

The movie is produced by Ivan Reitman and Annie Karp, with Naia Cucukov, Tom Pollock and Ilona Herzberg acting as executive producers.
