One evening the Collins find their maid Mrs. Murdock at the end of their steps: dead, neck broken. Obviously she had an accident. Consequently they need a new babysitter for an upcoming big party. The sensible Helen meets little Susan Collins at the discount market and likes her, so she offers to do the job. She doesn't know Susan's teenage brother Mark - technically skilled and good in school, but restive and cunning. As soon as the parents have left, he starts psychologically terrorizing Helen and his sister with electronic tricks. Written by

Just before Mark is bullied on Main Street by Williams, his hair goes from dry to wet and back to dry again. See more »

Before Mac Culkin ever played that psychotic little killer kid in "The Good Son", Christian Slater was serial killer in the making, Mark Collins in "Twisted."
A new family moves into a quiet, small town. But the body count goes up thanks to that oblivious family's completely sociopathic teenaged son (or as their parents like to say, "he's our adolescent"). Forget the part of the story involving the parents as it is of no consequence to the main point: watching this kid Mark who's hobbies include torturing small animals and bumping off babysitters.
You can get lost in how absolutely deranged this kid is, at times wanting to jump on the screen and beat the crap out of him yourself. He's such a giant, scary wierdo. And that's your whole movie, really. I can't tell you enough how wierd he is. And, like another viewer pointed out, how did the parents never suspect anything? I suppose they were (listen to what they mention about him about the night of the first murder), though they may have unlikely realized to what level of insanity he was on. And how they couldn't figure that out when his little wiener sister did was beyond me, too.
All I can say is that this movie was Super Creep. Super Creep. It's Super Creepy, yeah!
