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>

An interesting Slater film.
21 May 2000 | by walker_eveSee all my reviews

I've seen my share of Christian Slater films. Some were good and so on. I know this is not very original on a movie about a child with some morbid problems. I rather liked this one especially with Mr. Slater. I bought it out of curiosity and I thought he was pretty good as this cruel older brother and anger of his society actions. It can be pretty upsetting. It was too quickly wrapped up in the end though.
