Goofs

When Amanda walks out the door into the yard she is frightened by clothing which hits her in the face from a spinning clothesline. In a subsequent shot we see the back door & clothesline positions in relation to each other. It would be highly unlikely and next to impossible that somebody exiting the door would not notice the white clothes on a spinning clothesline and avoid them instead of walking into the path of the clothes.

Dr. Cordell: You may have to spell it M-U-R-D-E-R, murder, if you don't get someone over there quickly!

Good Scary Film
7 May 1999 | by Axiom-2See all my reviews

This movie scared the crap out of me when I first saw it as young teenager.

Susan George was really good in as the babysitter (Amanda). She is terrorized by the baby's estranged father. This movie has a really creepy feeling to it. It was filmed in England, and most of the really old houses there just seem to have that eerie look about them. This is a movie worth checking out......
