Storyline

When Kyle Lawrence, his wife Sara, and their teen daughter Amy return early from their annual lake holiday, their housesitter Rebecca has no place to stay until her next job, so Sara lets her stay with them for a few days. Rebecca plays the perfect guest and housekeeping help, and even assists Sara with renovating secondhand furniture. But while the Lawrences were gone, Rebecca had actually gone through all their belongings, especially mementos. Amy, who never got over failing to save her kid sister from drowning after fallen through the frozen lake, mistrusts and resents the invasive "substitute sister" who manages to make her parents believe that she's been abusing pills. When self-absorbed Amy and her obsessive quest for dirt on the newcomer wear out her boyfriend Travis' patience, Rebecca seduces him. Rebecca (actually just another alias) will stop at nothing to either find her perfect family or gruesomely punish everyone for their "betrayal." Written by KGF Vissers

The Homely House Sitter
27 July 2017 | by geoffox-766-418467See all my reviews

This lame tale of a nutty house sitter doing her evil work to a normal family going through the loss of the daughter is about as predictable as you can imagine. This nut case is downright homely and annoying to look at and that whiny voice of hers could drive anyone crazy. I found it hard to watch her acting as well. So obvious in her snooping. The young daughter of the family is very good and you root for her. Mama and Papa have no idea what is going on and fall for the killer bitch's tales. But the daughter is wise and eventually give the girl her up pence. I was slightly bored with this film as it was too obvious and no one would let a house sitter stay when they aren't needed. The ending couldn't come soon enough.
