Call it Fatal Nanny Attraction - even though the source is familiar, Rebecca De Mornay is perfectly evil and believable. The plot is ludicrous at times, but disbelief has to be suspended in almost every film. Great ride.

A great movie for it's time. You wouldn't want this psycho nanny anywhere near a child.

Vengeance is Mine!!

Claire (Annabella Sciorra) and her husband Michael (Matt McCoy) hire Peyton Flanders (Rebecca De Mornay) as their new nanny who seems to be perfect. Little do they know that Peyton is out to ruin the family, especially Claire, who claimed Peyton’s husband molested her, which led to his suicide and to Peyton’s miscarriage when she found out the shocking news.

Things get creepy as the nanny manipulates Claire into banishing a simple minded handyman Soloman (Ernie Hudson) from the house and destroys her relationship with her best friend Julianne Moore who plays the feisty, bitchy, Marlene. Not contented with that she plans to seduce Micheal and take Claire's young daughter as well as her newborn baby to replace her own baby, the one she lost after her husband's suicide.

I watched this...
