Picks and Pans Review: The Sitter
Fox (Mon., June 10, 8 P.M. ET)
In a pointless remake of the 1952 suspense film Don't Bother to Knock, Kim (When He's Not a Stranger) Myers takes the Marilyn Monroe role as the deeply disturbed teen who gets a job baby-sitting at a hotel. You know the plot has been updated mostly because there are punk rockers and three-card-monte dealers gratuitously placed on the periphery.
Director Rick Berger tries to make the mood ominous before there is any rationale for doing so, and the whole film is a long buildup to disappointment. It will never scare you, only make you feel squeamish.
