So besides the four babysitter movies depicted in the above image (HALLOWEEN, FRIGHT, WHEN A STRANGER CALLS, HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) what other horror movies can you guys think of that feature babysitters?
BABYSITTER WANTED (2008)
TRICK OR TREATS (1982)
THE BABY (1973)
THE GUARDIAN (1990)
THE FOG ( MRS KOBRITZ!)
Also: Freddy’s Nightmares ep. “Do you know where your children are?”
I can’t think of additional horror movies, but back when I babysat my nephew and niece I had a reoccurring nightmare about having to save them from horrible things. In my nightmare, I was always heroic and would stop at nothing to save them.
The #1 most important part of babysitting is making sure that the children under your care are not murdered by an escaped mental patient.
Forget zombies and vampires, somebody should make a movie called “Babysitters Vs. maniacs” and have it an all out war.
Also I remembered another babysitter!
The one from Amityville Horror (original and remake). She didn’t have to worry about a maniac but she still really earned her two bucks an hour.
Well, really a nanny/governess instead of a babysitter, but all of the adaptations of “The Turn of the Screw” including “The Innocents” and the more babysitteresque (but less good) “In a Dark Place”.
