- The best of the bunch is undeniably Curtis Hanson's The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992) with Rebecca De Mornay at the height of her hotness and crazy-ness. Not just at the top of the evil nanny in our midst heap but also one of my favorite early 90s suspense/thrillers (a.k.a. rich white people in danger - if it's poor people it's a horror movie).
- The Guardian (1990) dir William Friedkin. I never got to see this movie which is a shame because I love William Friedkin movies (The Exorcist, Sorcerer, The French Connection, To Live and Die in LA). Additionally this movie is unavailable on netflix, which is kind of a drag because now I really want to watch it.
- Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead (1991) dir Stephen Herek. I don't know how this hold up because I have seen it since the 90s. I really enjoyed the movie but then again it might have just be my love for Christina Applegate.
Huh, this is turning out harder than I thought. I know there are more evil babysitter movies than this. I was going to include Poison Ivy but that's just a stranger in our midst movie. Any of you fine folks remember any gems?
