We told you last month that a remake of 1991 black comedy Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead was on the way, though we didn’t have a release date or plot info at the time.

Variety provides an update on the remake this week, reporting that Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead will be released into theaters by Iconic Events Releasing in April.

The Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead remake arrives on April 12, 2024.

Watch the official teaser trailer below!

First reported by Variety, the cast for the modern day update includes Nicole Richie, June Squibb, Jermaine Fowler, Ms. Pat, Gus Kenworthy, Simone Joy Jones, Donielle Tremaine Hansley, Miles Fowler, Iantha Richardson and Tyriq Withers.

The new film ” follows 17-year-old girl Tanya (Jones), who plans to vacation in Europe with her friends before heading to college in the fall. But her mom (Ms. Pat) decides to go to a wellness retreat in Thailand, so Tanya is forced to stay home with her siblings. When — as the title suggests — their elderly babysitter (Squibb) unexpectedly dies, Tayna gets a job working for an ambitious woman named Rose (Ritchie). As she juggles work, family and a complicated romance, Tanya navigates adulthood at the cost of her last summer of freedom.”

Of particular note, the remake was recently rated “R” for “teen drug use, language, and some sexual references.”

Wade Allain-Marcus directed the film, written by Chuck Hayward (“Ted Lasso”).

In the 1991 movie directed by Stephen Herek and starring Christina Applegate, “Five siblings are left alone all summer when their mom leaves town and the evil babysitter bites the dust.”

Bee Delores celebrated 30 years of Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead here on BD back in 2021. Bee wrote, “The film may not read as a horror film for most people 一 but now in my 30s, and having experienced many horrors in my life, from death and the corporate world, it’s pretty frightening how real it is. Death has long grasped its gnarled fingers around my life, and this film came at a formative time, forever scarring my five-year-old self. There’s a particular sadness stitched into the storyline, and I find myself greatly identifying with Swell, her journey to find herself, and her clutching onto the last remnants of her childhood. It’s scary to be an adult, and 30 years later, Babysitter’s Dead captures the truth quite perfectly.”
