Storyline

Kate and her artist husband are busy working parents. Everything seems to be going fine, going about their daily lives. Then, Anna, the Swedish nanny that Kate hired to care for their daughter, comes into their lives. She tells Christina odd stories, and dazzles her with gifts and her strange picture book. Kate is having awful visions, her husband is acting weird, and her daughter is slowly drawing away from her. Her investigation of Anna only leads to a bizzare Satanic plot. Is there anyone she can trust? Written by Jennifer Valley

Did You Know?

Trivia

The painting uncovered in Nick's studio that shows Anna, Nick, Christina in devilish attire and the mother in prison is based on the paintings of H. R. Giger. See more »

Goofs

When Kate finds the picture book in Nick's study, one camera angle was obviously shot in Anna's room, as we can see the Ronja Rövardotter (1984) poster on the wall. Anna's room looks totally different to Nick's study. See more »

Incredible start but afterwards it collapses like ****
27 May 2001 | by -Peter-See all my reviews

I've seen this film and I must say, the first 7 minutes of the movie are really awesome, and thats all I can say about the film. If the film could hold the atmosphere from the beginning it would have been a GREAT film, but I think the makers ran out of inspiration :)

I rated this film 6
