Performers, Cast and Crew:
The peaceful veneer of American suburbia is stripped away as an alluring babysitter unwittingly becomes the object of her clients' dreams and obsessions. Based on Robert Coover's surreal short story, THE BABYSITTER stars Alicia Silverstone (CLUELESS, BLAST FROM THE PAST) as the pubescent object of lust.
A beautiful, all-American teenager becomes the unwitting cause of her employers' indiscretions. Harry Tucker, the man who hired her, sees her as a perfect extra-marital romance, while his wife uses her husband's obsession as an excuse to have an affair with her neighbor.
But things go from bad to worse when the babysitter's boyfriend is threatened by a local hood with desires of his own.
