Editorial Reviews

A psycho thriller that slashes away at the façade of a perfect family, The Sitter is anything but your typical lifetime movie. When prosperous California Couple Carter an Meghan search for the perfect nanny, they believe they've found their answer in sweet Abby Reed. But no sooner does she arrive than she begins to arouse suspicion in friends and neighbors who, one by one, start dying. By the time Meghan looks deeper into her past, it's too late. Abby's work has already begun. Starring Emmy Nominee Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue) and a haunting performance by Mariana Klaveno (Though None Go with Me), The Sitter does its job to deadly perfection with terrifying suspense as the children sleep!

4.0 out of 5 stars For all those who love B type Thrillers ! December 7, 2009
This was a nice and suspensful B type Thriller movie that I really enjoyed. If you are into Thrillers in general, and don't mind low budget ones, you'll really like this one.
The plot is certainly nothing new; we've seen it all before with such thrillers as "The Hand that rocks the Cradle", and the like. But yet the story manages to get exciting every now and then. The acting was really convincing, and I always like to see new faces, which also made this movie likeable.
All other things, like picture & sound quality were good to excellent with this DVD. Go and see it if you're into thrillers, because you won't regret it.

But in the end you will see or it will make sense why she was so into the husband.

3.0 out of 5 stars BOYS WILL BE BOYS December 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a made for TV movie in 2007 which is why it is unrated. There are some PG-13 scenes. Abbey Reed (Mariana Klaveno)moves in as a nanny with the Eastman family in Carpenter Falls, a bay city with that looks like LA. There are no mysteries. When people die, we see her kill them. We also know who is next, especially the "Gladys Kravitz" neighbor. Abbey was an abused child from the opening scene. In spite of that, there is a slight mystery, so slight I wouldn't call it a twist, even a TV twist.

The writing was formulaic. The acting was mostly made for TV grade, along with the unimaginative credit fonts and lame music used in every made for TV film ever made. There are no real surprises and might do as a family night slasher rental, i.e. threaten the kids you are going to hire a nanny if they don't behave.

Featuring a married couple who hire a delusional nanny, The Sitter (2007) is a psychological suspense thriller that while not offering anything that is really new, still manages to hold your interest and entertain, as it proceeds to a somewhat predictable conclusion. The film originally aired on Lifetime, under the title While The Children Sleep.

William R. Moses, perhaps best known for appearing in numerous Perry Mason TV movies, is Carter Eastman, a lawyer and father of two. Carter and his wife Meghan (Gail O'Grady, NYPD Blue), a real estate broker, decide to hire a live-in nanny, so that Meghan can return to work. Young, personable, and attractive, Abby Reed (Mariana Klaveno) is hired, to look after the Eastman's kids, Casey and Max, and soon becomes part of the family. It is revealed very early that Abby has her eye on Carter, and from here it's kind of a familiar story, as she begins to undermine Meghan. Then, in order to keep her secrets from coming to light, Abby resorts to homicide, and then the fun really begins.

The story has little happening in the romance and sex departments, and focuses more on the family's changing dynamics, and Abby's delusions and increasingly violent acts. You know Abby will engage in mayhem, the question is how extreme it will be. The worst is when one of Carter's friends gets a shovel slammed into his neck. Meghan's nosy neighbor who is suspicious of Abby, also incurs her wrath. And poor Meghan takes a fall down the same flight of steps twice! Mariana Klaveno (True Blood) pulls off being the deranged Abby quite well. While Gail O'Grady and William R. Moses, are fairly credible as the too trusting couple. The twist involving Abby's past isn't very realistic, but it's still a very good fit in a drama like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars THE HAND THAT TIPPED OVER THE CRADLE June 5, 2011
Psycho babysitters are nothing new. Remember Rebecca DeMornay's HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE?
This Lifetime movie was originally titled WHILE THE CHILDREN SLEEP is one of those guilty pleasures. Every move is calculated to be predictable: the lecherous partner of our ignorant dad; the nosy neighbor who knows too much; the workaholic mom who loses her child's affections; the mom's sexy and suspicious best friend. All fall prey to the malevolent sitter. The movie does have a twist at the end I didn't see coming.
Mariana Klaveno is quite good as Abby, the sitter, effortlessly switching from sweet to savage at the drop of a shovel. Gail O'Grady, William R Moses and Stacy Haiduk are good if not memorable.
THE SITTER is actually alittle better than most Lifetime flicks--nothing great but enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Suspenseful October 4, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good movie that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Not too violent or bloody either like the cover makes it seem. Just scary, which I like. Abby is a demented live-in nanny who's determined to take over Meghan's family and even her life.
