To Jill Johnson, it was the perfect babysitting job. The parents were away. The fridge was stocked. The children were tucked into bed. But then the phone rings and an ominous voice asks, "Have you checked the children?" Locked in with the lights out and curtains drawn, a panicky Jill phones the police, who trace the calls--only to inform her they're coming from inside the house. And as the frightened teenager goes upstairs to check on the children, Jill's quiet night of babysitting is about to turn into a nerve-shattering nightmare of suspense, horror and dread.

"Have you checked the children?"
As far as I know, this is the original babysitter nightmare movie, where the calls are traced to. . .inside the house! Ahhh! Get out! Only the first 20 minutes, which are nail-biting, are the babysitter part and then it picks up later when the killer escapes from a mental institution and cop turned p.i. Charles Durning tracks him down. Or tries to, as he loses him like 8 times. Carol Kane is the babysitter, Colleen Dewhurst is a woman he stalks, and Tony Beckley, who looks like a seedier Richard Burton, plays the killer. He died shortly after this film. The middle part is slow, but it picks up again at the end. Great, creepy soundtrack. Followed by a sequel and a remake. Also check out "Black Christmas," the original "Halloween," and the more recent "House of the Devil," which pays homage to the babysitter in danger horror movie.
