The Sitter

The Sitter

Russell Mulcahy (2007)



Our Score
The hackneyed psycho-nanny tale gets another re-tread courtesy of this join-the-dots thriller from Highlander director Russell Mulcahy. A well-cast Mariana Klaveno plays a live-in babysitter whose twisted past violently resurfaces after she becomes obsessed with the head of the family (William R Moses). Klaveno switches effortlessly between sweetly innocent and demonically deranged, keeping events moving despite their predictability. However, the ludicrous dialogue and pedestrian execution only highlight the feature's overall tackiness, while a weak finale offers an unsatisfactory payoff. The content might be stronger than most made-for-TV fare, but it's scant compensation when the rest is so mediocre.


The mother of two children decides to return to work, so hires a live-in nanny. However, no sooner has the seemingly perfect childminder moved in then the neighbourhood is rocked by a series of violent deaths. Thriller, starring Mariana Klaveno, William R Moses and Gail O'Grady.
