Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead: A Review of EMELIE

Michael Thelin’s 2015 babysitting psychological torture flick Emelie is a specially designed weapon aimed at every fear a parent ever had about leaving their kids with a stranger, but it’s more than that. For me, this movie dredged up a whole bunch of weird memories about what it’s like to to be an older sibling or an awkward pre-teen boy babysat by a gorgeous teenage girl, simultaneously infatuated and terrified. Emelie knows all about that stuff, and manipulates those feelings to unsettle and frighten you just like its baby-faced star screws with her charges. This is a movie that is at least as disturbing as it is frightening, a movie about making you squirm in your seat rather than making you jump in it.
