Movie Info

A group of teenage boys out to give their girlfriends a good scare on Homecoming night, which also happens to be Halloween, head to an abandoned house in an out-of-the-way grapefruit orchard where they uncover the story of a real life urban legend, known as The Caretaker

This classic teen scream hosts an ensemble cast of kids and is spiced with an outlandish teacher (Jennifer Tilly) obsessed with getting famous by sleeping with a student and an over-protective father (Judd Nelson). Jonathan Breck (Jeepers Creepers) gives a delightful performance as the crazy Limo Driver and Jim Lang (John Carpenter's Mouth of Madness, Body Bags) delivers an original scare sure to make you jump out of your seat. --© Official Site

Standard gorefest with Jennifer Tilly and Judd Nelson showing their B-movie colors. The only thing I liked was the killer rolling a grapefruit in front of his victims. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Audience Reviews for The Caretaker


A very stupid slasher flick, The Caretaker is mostly enjoyable because of its idiocy and campiness. There is nothing redeemable about it except its humor that is not always intentional.

predictable film, making fun of predicatable films, while being as scary as a black cat 10 miles away from you.
