Intense, creepy and rather mysterious; it is emotionally manipulative with a stunning lead performance by Sarah Bolger; Emelie is indeed a must - see!

Quite a solid horror with some good acting, nice structure and a satisfying climax. An original idea too, as far as I know.

An original idea too, as far as I know. The stuff this babysitter gets up to is truly shocking and I'm quite surprised they subjected these child actors to certain scenes. It's not the kind of film that ties up every loose end either, in a good way, leaving some suspense left over. A good one for horror/thriller fans definately Expand

Filled with intense moments and a few interesting twists. Though it was kind of labeled as a "horror" film, this movie plays out as more of a thriller. But still a great movie to watch. Maybe you can watch this movie the next time the baby sitter comes over! Expand

This is a goreless gore movie. Instead of the butcher, we have a completely insane babysitter who has no motivation for her actions beyond being completely insane.

Instead of the butcher, we have a completely insane babysitter who has no motivation for her actions beyond being completely insane. Instead of the gore, we have a babysitter doing child abuse. The effect is the same: cheap and nonsensical disturbing and disgusting scenes for cheap thrills. Except these have less of a justification than mosy gore movies, and that's saying something. All technical aspects are OK (with a special mention to the surprisingly good child actors), but can't save the premise and the plot. If you like your movies being something more than a loosely connected series of exploitative and gratuitous disturbing scenes, stay away. Expand

What an original idea for a movie. Mom and Dad want an evening out to celebrate their Anniversary. Their usual sitter is not available so they hire a friend of hers. But once the parents leave the house, this new sitter does thingsWhat an original idea for a movie. Mom and Dad want an evening out to celebrate their Anniversary. Their usual sitter is not available so they hire a friend of hers. But once the parents leave the house, this new sitter does things differently. Way differently. In flashback, we discover the history of the new sitter, and it's not good. This must be every parent's nightmare, leaving your kids with someone who is not what they appear to be. Expand

Once again another experience to take in the adventure of these unknown movies, Emelie makes us love it a lot and then it soon becomes forgettable. Bring me a huge leap and don't forget about this movie.

Το premise της ταινίας είναι αρκετά πρωτότυπο, καθώς δεν έχουμε δει πολλές φορές μια δολοφονική νταντά και ανταπεξέρχεται επάξια σε αυτά που σου υπόσχεται. Από την αρχή σε βάζει στο τρυπάκι πως υπάρχουν πράγματα που δεν ξέρεις για την AnnaΤο premise της ταινίας είναι αρκετά πρωτότυπο, καθώς δεν έχουμε δει πολλές φορές μια δολοφονική νταντά και ανταπεξέρχεται επάξια σε αυτά που σου υπόσχεται. Από την αρχή σε βάζει στο τρυπάκι πως υπάρχουν πράγματα που δεν ξέρεις για την Anna και που μάλλον δεν θα ήθελες και να μάθεις, ειδικά αν είσαι γονιός. Η ατμόσφαιρα είναι περίεργη, άβολη και θυμίζει κάτι από τον δικό μας Κυνόδοντα, καθώς η νταντά υποβάλλει τα παιδιά σε διάφορα περίεργα παιχνίδια, σεξουαλικού και μη περιεχομένου. Οι υποκριτικές είναι αυτό που πρέπει να είναι, με μια βλοσυρή και ταυτόχρονα πολλά υποσχόμενη Anna Και με τα παιδιά να ανταπεξέρχονται άψογα στον ρόλο των νεαρών θυμάτων. Η αγωνία κλιμακώνεται σε γοργούς ρυθμούς και σε κάνει να αμφισβητείς κάθε λεπτό το τι θα γίνει παρακάτω αλλά και το τι είναι αυτό που όντως θέλει η απόκοσμη babysitter. Τα παιχνίδια που παίζει με τα νεαρά μέλη της οικογένειας δεν έχουν μόνο αντίκτυπο στην ψυχολογία των παιδιών αλλά και στου θεατή, καθώς σου αφήνει μια αίσθηση ότι κάποιος έχει παραβιάσει τον προσωπικό σου χώρο.

Notable for the quality of the child actors, this film is certainly an interesting watch. The story (deranged babysitter) is one that's been told countless times before, however the nature of the way Emelie toys with her charges emotionsNotable for the quality of the child actors, this film is certainly an interesting watch. The story (deranged babysitter) is one that's been told countless times before, however the nature of the way Emelie toys with her charges emotions differs from the usual approach. This in my opinion sets it aside from anything that has come before. Some of the scenes are quite disturbing which is exactly what you want to see in a film of this nature. The ending is quite formulaic and leaves you feeling it could and maybe should've been slightly more dramatic. Expand
