Seriously????? I had to look at the IMDb category to make sure this wasn't a comedy. It's billed as horror. I knew from the opening scenes this one was gonna be an eye roller.
The problem is that it isn't funny in a good way. The movie suffers from bad acting (with no exceptions), too much padding, a bad script and bad lighting. Nuff said.
The babysitter is the worst case of a caretaker I've ever seen and the charge she's watching will start running your nerves in short order. She's quite inept for an older babysitter and its hard to feel anything for her but contempt.
Would I recommend? Nope.
