This story strangely reminded me some films from UK. Typical British movies for me, who has seen thousands of them over the years. I mainly thought of Jack Clayton's THE INNOCENTS or many more features including children and their evil nannies, or nannies against the evil kids they had to take care of. Of course it is here told in the American way, but very efficiently. The suspense is gradually shown, till the climax. It's a shame that this episode has not been commented yet, and probably in a far better way than I do it now. The evil nanny character is terrific, I assure you. An outstanding tale for this very top of the pile eerie TV show. I hope many of you will be able to watch it. Why not?
