"Have you checked the children?"
As far as I know, this is the original babysitter nightmare movie, where the calls are traced to. . .inside the house! Ahhh! Get out! Only the first 20 minutes, which are nail-biting, are the babysitter part and then it picks up later when the killer escapes from a mental institution and cop turned p.i. Charles Durning tracks him down. Or tries to, as he loses him like 8 times. Carol Kane is the babysitter, Colleen Dewhurst is a woman he stalks, and Tony Beckley, who looks like a seedier Richard Burton, plays the killer. He died shortly after this film. The middle part is slow, but it picks up again at the end. Great, creepy soundtrack. Followed by a sequel and a remake. Also check out "Black Christmas," the original "Halloween," and the more recent "House of the Devil," which pays homage to the babysitter in danger horror movie.
