Synopsis


Emelie
When their regular babysitter can't make it, two suburban parents hire her friend "Anna" (Sarah Bolger) to look after their three children while they enjoy a night out. But when Anna's behavior becomes increasingly unhinged, eldest sibling Jacob (Joshua Rush) grows suspicious and discovers that she's actually an imposter named Emelie who has sinister designs on the family's youngest child. Directed by Michael Thelin, Emelie made its world premiere at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    The acting across the board was perfectly cast. The kids did an amazing job. The film looked good. The premise is awesome. Story wise, it's slow going.. and i love slow burns when it comes to stories. It just treads in the same spot and takes a while to get to the payoff, which i really thought was the best part of the movie. Definitely puts you in an uneasy space, and keeps you there after the movie's over.

    This movie was a little slow going but I think it added to the anticipation of what is this crazy baby sitter going to do next. It was surprisingly well acted and defiantly made me very uncomfortable with a few jump scares...its a good monday night, im all by myself and wanna watch something creepy horror/thriller movie. Watch this if you have kids and dont use a service for babysitters

    Disturbing Take on Crazy Babysitter Subgenre

    I usually am bored by the newer crazy babysitter films. They usually feel like Lifetime Original Movies and most times they are. This movie had a real disturbing dark feeling about it. It had a sense of realism that made it more effective. These films usually rely on outlandish melodrama. The lead was excellent and conveyed a real sense of a damaged mentally ill woman.

    Babysitting at it's worst

    this is an ok horror film. After reading the reviews I expected it to be more disturbing and twisted. speaking of twists...the "twist" wasn't very shocking at all. It's been done before...and it's been done better. Worth a watch. The main actress and the child actors are great, the material is just very "typical horror".

    This is a study in tension and suspense instead of outright horror. It builds and builds, a couple of real uncomfortable moments, especially the "VHS" scene, great acting and fairly original script. I was a little let down by the climax but liked the ambiguous ending.

    Emelie is not a bad watch. I did like the fact that there was more to her than just being crazy for the sake of being crazy. Unfortunately there isn't much that separates this film from all of the others.
