Storyline

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 Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

"twist"-told tales
12 June 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

A few years before Christian Slater got really famous, he starred in this really weird movie about a disturbed teenager. Trust me, some of the things that he does are likely to make your blood freeze. And if only the baby sitter had known these things before she arrived; certain things might have not happened! The truth is, "Twisted" is nothing particularly special. Maybe at best, it's just a before-they-were-famous situation for Christian Slater. But the movie does have a certain charm to it, if only due to the ugly subject matter. Still, I don't recommend this to people with weak stomachs. So check it out...if you can handle it.
