Goofs

After Meghan falls down the stairs, Abby yanks the end of the trip-wire off its metal screw-eye, but the eye remains in place, still fastened into the wall. Yet nobody notices it afterward, and then later when Meghan looks in the pocket of Abby's jeans and finds the rolled-up wire, the screw-eye is again attached to it. See more »

Creepy
6 January 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

If you have plenty of time to waste ... it's OK. It moves at a good pace but to pull this movie off it would need to be a little longer with a little more background on the sitter.

The acting is OK. Mariana Klaveno as the sitter does the best job and is the most believable.

William R. Moses played a pretty good part as the husband.

Gail O'Grady, as the wife, had a weak part and the reasons for her going back to work were not developed.

The ending is sort of silly. Like most of these sitter movies ... there are parts that are interesting ... but overall it leaves you wondering why you spent the time.
