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

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 »

Could have been better.
8 January 2001 | by planet groovySee all my reviews

This isn't a bad movie when you consider it was made for TV and probably did not have the biggest budget. It keeps you interested until you find out all the secrets, then you are kind of disappointed. Basically the plot is a mix of 'Hand That Rocks the Cradle' and 'Rosemary's Baby' so after a while you can see where things are going. With a better script and actors, this could have been pretty good; instead it is just an average TV movie.
