I love films with realistic villains. Heck, I love films in which an outsider destroys what is shown as the 'perfect family'. Hell, I love these films even more when that said villain is a female!

Granted, this film wasn't Oscar material but both the lead females sure gave great performances with Annabella playing the housewife who has Asthma & Rebecca De Mornay playing the twisted & ... read more

After hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was definitely eager to check it out. Indeed, it was pretty successful when it was released and it has been ever since considered as a classic thriller from the 90’s. Furthermore, since it was directed by Curtis Hanson (‘L.A. Confidential’), I was quite sure it would be at least a pretty decent thriller. Unfortunately, I thought that... read more

A suburban family chooses seemingly sweet Peyton Flanders (Rebecca De Mornay) as their newborn's nanny. Only much later does the infant's mother, Claire Bartel (Annabella Sciorra), realize Peyton's true intentions -- to destroy Claire and replace her in the family. The nail-biting suspense builds quickly in this chilling psychological thriller about deception and bitter revenge. Julianne Moore co-stars as Claire's sassy real-estate-agent friend.

" A terrifying film for any parent as it feeds on the fear of a ice-eyed crazy nanny trying to take your infant and killing off you and the rest of the family. Rebecca deMornay makes a good intense role and is believable (and equally tragic) as the nanny. John deLancie has a small but believable moment as a sleazebag gynecologist that finger-rapes pregnant women. A laughable "jump scare" in the film is when it seems it is scarier to have a dark-skinned man in your neighborhood than a killer nanny"
