A new life is starting for Angie, who's leaving the embrace of her religious mother for college studies. She applies for a babysitting job and finds herself on a remote farm before the Stanton family and their adorable little boy. But Angie's first night of work might just be her last. Alone in the vast and sprawling house, anonymous phone calls begin to shatter her peace of mind. The calls soon turn into a face to face confrontation with a hulking beast of a man who breaks through the front door. Angie must fight for her life to protect herself and the young boy who is asleep upstairs. But is everything as it seems?...Babysitter Wanted turns one of the most tried and true of all horror movie conventions - the babysitter in peril – absolutely on its head, and twists it into something entirely new and different. You may ‘think’ you know where it’s headed, but you would be wrong. Suspenseful, funny, gory, and defying expectations every step of the way, this is one of the most enjoyable rollercoaster rides in recent horror cinema history. Starring Sarah Thompson (7th Heaven), Matt Dallas (Kyle XY), Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of a 1000 Corpses), Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde), Kristen Dalton (The Departed), Nana Visitor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Monty Bane (Sleepwalkers). Babysitter Wanted is one of the most well reviewed horror films of the year.moreless

    People often ask how I find and pick the really independent films I sometimes review. In the case of Babysitter Wanted, it was an easy choice, as nothing is scarier to me that an evil child. Strangely enough the film also features several cast members from a TV show I really liked, Kyle XY. The story begins with the deeply religious, Angie (Sarah Thompson), going away to college. Looking for some extra money, she picks up a job babysitting for a family living in the middle of nowhere. Everything seems normal at first, until one night someone tries to break in, and to everyone's surprise, the beautiful young girl is not the target of his rage. This film was very unusual for a religious based horror film, as it wasn't over the top with religious jargon. It was a major theme of the film, but they don't beat you over the head with it the way other films do. It's also unlike your usual slasher films as it has a good cast, a decent and somewhat unique story, and most important of all, it doesn't move at lightning speed. Almost every slasher film I've ever seen has 15 minutes of story and then it's one big chase, but that doesn't happen here. They spend a lot of time on the story and when things do happen, they are pretty surprising. Sarah Thompson stars as the babysitter, while being your typical beautiful horror movie girl, she was also very credible and connected with the audience. Watching this film, you feel like you know her or someone like her, and you'll be cheering for her in a way you really don't do in films like this. She's paired with Kyle XY himself, Matt Dallas, another really good looking, likeable person, that audiences will also relate to. Once you see the whole picture, it's going to seem a bit odd to you, but the Directors and Casting people really hit the nail on the head, making this seem like anything but a slasher film until the time was just right, making for a really enjoyable and unique type of film.moreless
