Storyline

Diana Prieto is pregnant and taking care of her autistic son Martin has become overwhelming. She has no one to help her while her husband Tomas spends months working in Asia. Diana's at her breaking point with Martin when Luz, a gifted caregiver from the Philippines, steps in to help. Martin quickly begins improving under Luz's supervision, but Diana's worried that he's only being taught to speak Filipino. Diana begins to suspect that Luz is using the language barrier and voodoo to turn Martin against Diana and into something far more sinister...

Babysitter
20 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I guess with movies like this, it's one or the other. But most likely the one thing you expect. So while you may not feel many surprises in the story/thriller, you may like how the tension is being build and the acting in general. It's not an easy watch, especially when and if you care for one of the main characters. Problem being you might not care that much.

So watching the wife and her husband, the question is, if you are supposed to have positive feelings towards the Babysitter? Now the ending on the other hand will either leave you satisfied because of the way everything is "wrapped" up or you may hate it for how it handled the whole thing. Not sure if it is a make or break thing though - I think you will know much earlier ...
