I read a review somewhere of Babysitter Wanted though I can't remember where or when. However I watched it last night and I was actually surprised at how good it was. That being said it is in no way as good as Ti West's House of the Devil (2009) but they would make for a great double feature.
Babysitter Wanted is a horror movie about you guess it - a babysitter in danger. What set this one apart from the standard teen scream fare was: the decent writing (though there are some absurd plot holes), the action - while this is a splatter pic, the really hardcore gore is either just out of frame, obscured in shadow, or only heard (which in someways is worse), Bruce Thomas out Bruce Campbells Bruce Campbell as Jim Stanton, Kai Kaster is awesome as the son Sam Stanton, and Sarah Thompson (who played Eve on Angel) was a pretty kick ass heroine (though she's about ten years older than her protagonist is supposed to be). The movie isn't high art or the best horror movie ever made but it certainly is better than your standard fare these days.
