[adrotate banner=”7″]As we all know, babysitters are instruments of the devil, sent to seduce fathers away from their families and leave mothers alone and sobbing. It’s true, all girls are brainwashed into this thanks to books like The Babysitters Club. Damn you, Stacey McGill! So it’s only natural that Lifetime yet again has a movie about an evil babysitter, a clueless husband who is easily seduced by tender young flesh, and a wife who has to sit around while it all happens around her. Luckily, now with Nanny Cam, she has a nanny cam and can spy on all the illicit action. Which is sort of perverse, but maybe she’s into it. Or probably not, as this is a Lifetime movie, not a Cinemax movie. Nanny Cam was known as Sitter-Cam during production.
Nanny Cam stars Laura Allen, Cam Gigandet, India Eisley, Farrah Mackenzie, and Monster Squad hero Andre Gower! New director Nancy Leopardi has a history of producing quality Lifetime content – Starving in Suburbia, Escape from Polygamy, and even genre films like AE: Apocalypse Earth and 100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck! This is writer Brian McAuley’s first feature.
When Linda and Mark’s elderly nanny, Mrs. Highsmith, is no longer able to care for their five-year-old daughter Chloe, they have no choice but to find a new sitter immediately. That’s when Heather enters their life. Young, gorgeous, great with kids and with a glowing recommendation, Heather seems perfect. But Linda isn’t ready to trust a new sitter with her child, and decides to keep an eye on them via nanny cams. Her curiosity turns to obsession as she notices Chloe growing more and more attached to Heather… not to mention Mark. Is Heather slowly muscling her way into Linda’s role? Things get even stranger when Mrs. Highsmith mysteriously commits suicide but it isn’t until Heather kidnaps Chloe that Linda begins to understand why Heather is here. Will Linda be able to keep Heather from doing the unthinkable by facing a past she’s tried to forget?
Nanny Cam premieres Sunday, December 28th on Lifetime!
