A couple hires a live-in nanny to watch the offspring while they work. At first, everything goes perfectly, but when an unsafe incident means the parents no longer want the nanny around, they find out this nanny is savvy at not being evicted from her live-in situation. So savvy, in fact, that she can make these parents’ lives a true nightmare.


A deranged and unstable young woman, played by Lindsey Elston becomes employed by a working couple. Her job is to take care of their two young children. After a major slip up with the children, Fay (Nicole Sterling) and Tim (Matthew Pohlkamp) decide it’s time for the nanny to leave. Little do they know the young woman isn’t going anywhere soon.

Finessing her way through tenant laws, Jen (also known as Alexa) makes it a point to stick around at all costs. The couple becomes forced to a level of discomfort in their own home and now the only solution to regain their life is through a major loophole.

The originality of the film is worthwhile. I enjoyed the storyline and how particular situations came about. It was also interesting to see how problems got handled. A lot of oh-no-she-didn’t moments kept me engaged to the film!

The cinematography of Evil Nanny was too bright. I never felt threatened as Fay and Tim did. It was bright and welcoming when the tone of the film was uncomfortable and unpredictable. The performances felt forced and slow paced, not very engaging even though the story was original. And there was zero scare factor.

In conclusion:

Evil Nanny has its intricate storyline that can be entertaining but the film wouldn’t be my first choice to watch on a lazy Sunday night.

Passionate about film since the age of 5, I have always had a fond memory of my love for movies since then. I believe in the escapism and magic that movies can bring to the audience through cinematography, story, and special effects. After studying film for 8 years at Wilmington University and the New York Film Academy, my knowledge about the art has been my greatest power. Born in Brooklyn, raised in Delaware, I found my way back to the Big Apple to pursue my passion! I'm excited to bring my love for film to you!
