We meet 40-ish mathematician Claire Hunger (Betsy Brandt from “Breaking Bad”) as she sleepily bids goodbye to fellow-academic spouse Paul (Chris Beetem). An ornithologist, he’s taken lately to going off into wilderness areas near their home in Athens, Ohio, taking minimal supplies and living off the land

The film is written and directed by Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson.
“Be careful,” Claire whispers to her husband Paul (Chris Beetem) as he slips out of their home to partake in his apparent favorite past time — a solo survivalist hiking trip into the woods, during which he’ll tote the bare minimum of supplies and only eat what he can find and hunt — an understandable sentiment made all the more crucial by her mention of Paul’s previous dizzy spells.

A last minute replacement babysitter turns out not to be who she says she is when a couple leave their three children in her care.
Released as part of Icon Home Entertainment’s ‘FrightFest Presents…’ range, Emelie reignites the old ‘babysitter from hell’ genre that we have seen in many movies before but not in anything recent, so is it time for a comeback for a style of film that, when done correctly, offers up some real-life scares, especially if you’re a parent?
Could be, although it’s debateable whether Emelie is the movie to do it, despite the fact that it does manage to create some genuine tension before unravelling for an unspectacular ending that could have made the all the difference. However, for the

A couple’s replacement babysitter turns out to be more than they bargained for when she subjects their kids to a series of twisted activities.
Early on, Anna/Emelie (all you really need to know is that she is the babysitter parents have nightmares about leaving their children with) delivers a small speech on the power of pretending. Not only is it unnerving and genuinely creepy (it’s obvious she has ulterior motives), but it is also her method of home invasion; fake being a babysitter and accomplish one very sinister goal.
Emelie is one of the better, more tense-driven horror films to come out in quite some time, but unfortunately does not completely deliver on its promising premise, mostly falling into clichés and predictability during the second half. Thankfully,

We know that new, last-minute-replacement babysitter Anna (Sarah Bolger: My All American) is going to be a nightmare from the moment she shows up at the Thompson home. We know because we’ve seen what happened before she arrived. But as far as the Thompsons can see, she is a godsend: Joyce (Susan Pourfar: Alex of Venice) and Dan (Chris Beetem) get to head out for their anniversary dinner secure in the knowledge that the kids are in teenage-girl hands that come highly recommended, and 11-year-old Jake (Joshua Rush: Mr. Peabody & Sherman), 9-year-old Sally (Carly Adams), and 4-year-old Christopher (Thomas Bair

Synopsis: After their regular babysitter “can’t make it”, the Thompson family turn to her friend Anna to look after the children while they go out for a rare night out to celebrate their anniversary. However, is this girl who they think she is?
Certainly aiming to terrify parents at this year’s FrightFest is the tense first full-feature film by Michael Thelin, Emelie. Apart from Halloween and When A Stranger Calls, there aren’t many films that present babysitting as a dangerous prospect. Films like Mary Poppins and Mrs. Doubtfire, show it to be a fun and wacky time for kids to have with interesting “mature” teenagers/adults. Has anybody wondered why parents so freely in these films, allow such strangers into their homes? Adventures In Babysitting for example, could

After their regular babysitter can’t make it, the Thompson family turns to her friend Anna to supervise the children while they go out to celebrate their anniversary.
You know those movies where there’s never really any bombastic, overt scenes of horror, but you somehow find yourself squirming in your seat because you’re so uncomfortable with what’s happening on screen? That is Emelie in a nutshell. It’s not a masterpiece, and it’s never particularly original, but it’s always tense and utterly gripping.
From the very moment the screen fades up from black, director Michael Thelin fills you with a sense of dread that bad things are on its way. And this sense of unease is carried out throughout the rest of the movie.
During the Jan. 8 episode of the period drama, the more than opinionated Maggie submitted an anonymous editorial to the Village Voice railing against the representative's hypocrisy. But after a pleasant lunch with Rawlings, Maggie fell for him. Of course there's still the lingering issue of that article.
On Sunday's (Jan. 15) show, Rawlings is none too pleased after reading the piece that calls him out on his double standards. He says, "I don't appreciate sources with 'inside knowledge' conspiring with the enemy," not realizing the "enemy" is right in front of him. Maggie is now focused on steering him in any direction that doesn't point toward her.
In other "Pan Am" news, Kate (Kelli Garner) tries to help out a couple of stewardesses mistaken for spies.
Kate (Kelli Garner) is sore at the CIA about the Nico Lanza thing when the Yugoslavian diplomat essentially got blackmailed into spying for the Feds. So she's understandably reluctant to get involved in any more snooping. But Kate is a little like Al Pacino in "Godfather 3." She could easily say, "Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in." This means a new adventure for her involving a Soviet bad guy. Nice to see Kate's willing to give it another shot.
Maggie (Christina Ricci), the free-spirited one of the crew, befriends a U.S. Congressman (Chris Beetem) who is en route to making a pro-nuke speech. Perhaps "befriends" is a bit of an understatement. They get along great,
