bucket of popcorn, some beer and get ready for one
of the best films you'll see all year."
After having sat through dozens of movies that
ranged from abysmal to somewhat watchable, it was
nice to see a movie that actually stood out.
Babysitter Wanted is not some "When A Stranger
Calls" rip-off, on the contrary, it's severely
better than "Stranger" in every possible way. In
fact, this is the best on-screen interpretation of
the urban legend since Halloween. Surprised? So was
I. Babysitter Wanted is a non-stop thrill-ride which
doesn't hold back on the gore, or the scares, or the
surprises. See, Babysitter Wanted starts out like
any other horror movie, but not everything is as it
"Babysitter Wanted is without a doubt one of the
best films I have seen in the past ten years."
Sometimes after watching a fantastic film you get
that sudden rush of enjoyment and sheer excitement
that the horror genre is head in the right way
again. After watching Babysitter Wanted I had that
feeling and I knew that the horror genre is still
capable of pumping out fantastic films on a budget.
This is one of those films that I am very proud to
be able to review and let everyone know that this is
a film that you have to keep your eye on. It is
without a doubt one of the best films I have seen in
the past ten years. So may this review serve as an
open letter to all the horror fans, distributors and
fellow horror critics hunt this movie down and watch
it. You won't regret it. Read
film with great performances... it goes where you
don't expect it to."
Moving to a new town to start college is never easy,
especially if youíre a girl. Moreso if youíre a
devout Christian girl who thinks Jesus is the beeís
knees and everyone should be nice to one another.
Yeah, thatís a good way to get eaten alive in
college. Luckily for Angie, the lead in Babysitter
Wanted, she moves away from her mother (also a
devout Christian) to go to a community college, one
that apparently has dorms on campus! First Iíve
heard of it, but then I donít get out much. That bit
of logical misstep has nothing to do with the
overall plot of Babysitter Wanted, I just wanted to
point it out.

production value was astounding; the film looked and
felt like a high budget indie film."
Jonas Barnes and Michael Manasseri have teamed
together to try and do what HALLOWEEN did to
babysitting nearly three decades ago, only
BABYSITTER WANTED takes a much different path. With
the rash of other babysitter movies hitting the big
screen over the past few years (BLACK CHRISTMAS,
WHEN A STRANGER CALLS), this is probably the best.
This film takes place in a small college town where
a girl gets a babysitting job on a rural farm and is
terrorized throughout the night.
