Sarah Bolger stars in this twist on the home invasion thriller in which a babysitter slowly reveals her sinister side to the children she’s watching over. The release comes with a making-of featurette and a trailer.

    JOY – 7/10; THE 5TH WAVE and THE CHOICE- 1/10 (it could’ve been 0).

    I’ll watch EASY RIDER and maybe EMELIE. I’ll skip REMEMBER (it sounds like a rip-off of THIS MUST BE THE PLACE and MR. KAPLAN).
