THE NIGHT SITTER is a gleefully gory horror comedy with an unforgettable psychedelic giallo style! A petty thief looking for a score (Elyse DuFour, AMC’s The Walking Dead) poses as innocent babysitter “Amber” and books a dream job at the mansion of Ted Hooper, an aspiring Paranormal Investigator with a reclusive son named Kevin and a mysterious office that is strictly off-limits. Soon “Amber”’s partners-in-crime arrive to clean out the house, leaving Kevin to sneak into his father’s office…and learn first-hand just why it’s off-limits!
It seems Ted Hooper’s unusual collection of paranormal artefacts contains a book printed in the ashes of The Three Mothers, who were tortured and executed in during the famed Salem Witch Trials. Their tormented souls have rested in the book for hundreds of years, just waiting for the right curious child to usher them back into the land of the living…but they didn’t count on “Amber” being there to protect him.
