The Guardian Review


Phil and Kate have a baby boy named Jake. They hire a baby-sitter, Camilla, to look after Jake and she becomes part of the family...

I saw this movie in the 90’s on TV. It’s a very stylish horror fantasy, by far superior to "Cat People" (1982). Good story, great performances of Jenny Seagrove and Dwier Brown and astonishing visuals.

One of the main elements of this movie was the ill atmosphere, the mistery that was surrounding the entire plot, which reminded me of Stephen King‘s "Sleepwalkers" (1992).

Another good element that increased the gore and the suspense was the fact that we do know nothing about the origins of this ancient supernatural force.

You mustn’t miss this amazing movie!!!
