Storyline

Bette Davis is an English nanny whose charge is 10-year-old Joey, just released from a home for disturbed children where he'd spent two years undergoing treatment for drowning his little sister in the bath. Shortly after his arrival home, suspicion arouses again when his mother is poisoned. But Joey continues to insist Nanny is responsible, just as she was with the death of his little sister, with only a neighboring friend believing the young boy. Written by alfiehitchie

How a thriller should be made.
27 June 1999 | by (Tyler, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that can really scare you without using any special effects or fancy techniques, but just good plot development and outstanding acting from the entire cast.

Highly recommended.
