Jacob does step up to the plate, and the result is reasonably satisfying, but the direction shifts from tensile to muddy in the run-up to the finale. The atypical babysitter under siege horror this was not, so I applaud them for twisting the original format. What was the point in the entire charade? She met Skinny Man Skinny Hyena , but couldn't have any more children and was unable to adopt a new child. A convincingly responsible babysitter when she needs to be, Emelie wields all the power in the world inside the Thompson home, and the delight she takes in being a cerebral assassin is the stuff nightmares are made of. Emelie is a strikingly unsettling film for about the first fifty minutes.
When Dan and Joyce are on their way home, Skinny Man drives into their taxi and dies. Be careful who you invite in. At first, Emelie just seems a vaguely anarchic force, letting the kids eat what they want, telling the two younger children, who want to play dress-up, to be creative in what they wear. We see the young woman, walking down a suburban street in grey weather. She forces the kids to drink sleeping syrup mixed into blue juice and for good measure tries to put a pillow over Jacob's face for five seconds after Christopher and Sally have fallen asleep, but Jacob has forced himself to vomit up the syrup so he remains awake and goes to get help from his friend and neighbor Howie, who has fireworks stashed in his treehouse. The film also makes the point that Emelie is tapping into a kind of natural anarchic, amoral force already within children, socialized away as they get older. That might come as something of a relief, as this is a bad-babysitter movie, one in which three children of fair to more-than-middling adorableness are threatened and terrorized in increasingly creepy and harrowing ways.
A couple's replacement babysitter turns out to be more than they bargined for when she subjects their kids to a series of twisted activities. Emelie plans to kidnap Christopher so he can become her new child but Jacob has hidden him. On Netflix, movies get a second chance at earning an audience. Emelie pants and hurriedly limps away.

Dan and Joyce go happily out to dinner leaving their three children Jake 11 , Sally 9 , and Christopher 4 in the tender care of Emelie. She calls Jacob to the bathroom and asks him for a new tampon, as she's on her period. Sally shoves a note asking for help into Maggie's bag. These caveats aside, though, this film is absolutely worth watching, not least for the truly disturbing way it pushes the boundaries of the babysitter plot.
She shows Sally and Christopher a made by their parents. You can be anything you want to be. She texts Skinny Man that she's found her cub. So it's a real mixed bag, a great idea, but unfortunately the execution was poor, the acting was great and the production values were strong. I fretted a bit about all this anachronistic hardware, but then I saw in the credits that the movie was shot in Buffalo, New York, and it all made sense; those people hang on to old tech out of spite. Maggie reads the note about the imposter but Emelie knocks her unconscious.
Jacob subdues Emelie by rolling a trash can towards her which she opens, thinking that Christopher is hidden inside, only to have the lit fireworks that Jacob had placed inside the trash can explode in her face. Only a few things tend to be fairly off limits when it comes to horror movies, and one of them is subjecting children to the sort of torment and torture that is typically visited upon adults in the genre. She tells him to shoot her but Jacob drops it. Jacob finds Maggie's dead body in the basement.

Unfortunately after a bright start, where you were left wondering what on Earth was going on, it just fell really flat, the plot made virtually no sense, I mean how on Earth did she know she'd end up there? Emelie threatens Jacob that she has Sally, whom she does not want, and will kill her unless Jacob brings her Christopher, the one she does want.
