is a 1990 film
directed by William Friedkin
and starring Jenny Seagrove
, Dwier Brown
and Carey Lowell
. A cable television
version of the film was credited to "Alan Von Smithee"
, indicating that Friedkin wished to disassociate himself from its release.
This ended up as Friedkin's last film not to be distributed by Paramount Pictures until 2007's Bug, distributed by Lionsgate.
This film is the story of a family who employs a nanny to take care of their child. The nanny turns out to really be a Druid-like tree spirit worshipper, who is into sacrificing new born babies to the tree deity.
Music for this film was written by Jack Hues
of Wang Chung
fame, and is his second collaboration with director Friedkin after 1985's To Live and Die In L.A. (soundtrack)
