Watching the trailer for Emelie took us back to the 90's, where evil babysitters and nannies seemed to have their own sub-genre of their own for a while. They were usually fun, shameless movies that teased exploitative goodness, but usually ended up playing more like a Lifetime movie of the week.
Emelie, however, looks like it's going to have a mean-spirited edge to it, and that is awesome.
We've been fans of Sarah Bolger since The Moth Diaries, and we have no doubt that she can pull off mean and crazy, so sign us up. We're at least happy to see her give it her best shot.
Check it out below.
Emelie will be in Limited Theatrical release and VOD on March 4th.
