Go To


Added DiffLines:

* CovertPervert: She's a sweet girl next door but she's very sexually curious, speculating about Cole's parent's sex lives and encouraging him to spy on his babysitter having sex.

Added DiffLines:

* LossOfInnocence: The events of the film force him to kill multiple people, and become ''very'' disillusioned with the one he trusted most.


Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: Cole simply adores her, so the realization that she's an evil murderer hits him like a freight train.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Insofar as anyone in the cult can be considered "sane." Compared to Max's senseless bloodlust, Sonya's creepiness, Amanda's vapidity, and John's LargeHam antics, Bee's got the most common sense of any of them.


* Adorkable


Added DiffLines:

* PrecociousCrush: He has a big crush on his babysitter, Bee.
* TheSoCalledCoward: For an alleged "pussy," he shows a ''lot'' of bravery in situations that would make most adults faint with fear.


Added DiffLines:

* CoolBigSis: If you ignore the "crazy cultist" thing, she's a pretty freaking awesome babysitter. Her very first scene shows her scaring the shit out of Jeremy for bullying Cole, and then giving Cole advice on how to properly defend himself.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: She opts to take Cole's blood via a harmless syringe, rather than killing him, since only a small amount of blood is needed. If she kills him, she has to find a new kid and start the whole process over. If she leaves him alive, she has a "fountain" of innocent blood. That said, it's implied she also leaves him alive because she does care about the kid.
