A suburban family chooses seemingly sweet Peyton Flanders as their newborn's nanny. Only much later does the infant's mother, Claire Bartel, realize Peyton's true intentions -- to destroy Claire and replace her in the family. The nail-biting suspense builds quickly in this chilling psychological thriller about deception and bitter revenge.

nudity Sex/Nudity: 5/10 A pregnant woman is sexually molested by a male doctor during an examination: he opens her gown (we see her bare breasts) and caresses her breasts; he removes his glove and inserts his hand into her vagina (nothing is visible) while caressing her abdomen with the other hand. A woman's bare breast is visible while she breastfeeds a baby. A woman's bare breasts are visible through her nightgown after she has been outside in the rain. A man is accused of sexually molesting a young girl after her mother finds her panties in his drawer (we later learn that he is innocent).
violence Violence/Gore: 6/10 Infrequent rather than constant, but sometimes graphic A man shoots himelf in the head off-screen (we hear the gunshot). A woman has a miscarriage (a lot of blood is shown). A woman in a bathroom stall goes into a fit of anger, ripping several papers apart, and then beats against the walls and door of the stall with a plunger. A woman grabs a young boy by the arm and holds him against a wall (he screams in pain), threatening to "rip his f*****g head off" if he ever bullies a young girl again. A woman slaps a man in the face. A greenhouse roof collapses and breaks, sending several shards of glass down onto a woman and killing her. A woman discovers another woman's bloody corpse in a greenhouse; she then has a violent asthma attack and breaks into her house, trying to use inhalers, but they are empty; she wheezes for several moments until she finally collapses to the floor (we see her in a hospital later). A woman punches another woman in the face, knocking her over a table (a bit of blood is visible near the woman's lip). A woman hits a man in the face with a shovel, knocking him over a staircase railing to the floor below (we later hear that his legs are broken and see some blood on his forehead). A woman violently swings a shovel at another woman several times, hitting and breaking various objects; the other woman holds up a chair to defend herself, but the chair breaks; she is then hit on the back with the shovel and falls to the floor, unconscious. A young girl locks a woman in a room from the outside; the woman breaks through the door with a fireplace poker and opens it, also hitting and knocking over several other objects with the poker; she then goes to an attic where a man is helping two children escape (she is planning to kidnap them); another woman walks in, brandishing a kitchen knife, but the other woman knocks it out of her hand with the poker and throws her to the floor; she revives and throws the woman with the poker against a wall and slams her head twice on the floor, but is grabbed by the face and thrown aside; the woman with the poker raises it to beat her, but the man grabs her hand; in retaliation, she hits him with it on the shoulder, but the other woman stands up and shoves her through a glass window; she rolls off the roof and lands on a fence below, which impales her (blood is shown on her mouth and on the ground beneath her).

alcohol Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 3/10 Adults drink alcoholic beverages and smoke cigarettes in a few scenes.
frightening Frightening/Intense Scenes: 8/10 There are several extremely terrifying scenes in this film, especially throughout the last fifteen minutes. These last few scenes involve a woman making her final attempt to kill a rival and keep you on your toes with your heart pounding in your head (extremely intense). Total Content Estimation: 27/50
