The Babysitter

The Babysitter (1980)

My Rating

Movie Info

The Babysitter is sweet-faced Stephanie Zimbalist, who is hired as housekeeper by married couple Patty Duke Astin and William Shatner. As she takes care of the couple's daughter (Quinn Cummings), Zimbalist slowly, subtly poisons the child's mind against her parents. She then sets about to seduce Shatner, fully intending to ruin his relationship with Astin. While not as horrific as the similar theatrical feature The Hand That Rock the Cradle (1992), The Babysitter is unsettling enough to give

Ultimately fails to deliver on the audacity of its premise.

Audience Reviews for The Babysitter

A somewhat entertaining, but utterly predictable thriller. This movie could have been a lot better, but as is, it's okay.
