Babysitter Wanted is a 2009 American suspense horror film directed by Jonas Barnes & Michael Manasseri being written by Jonas Barnes and starring Sarah Thompson and Matt Dallas.
Small-town devout girl Angie (Sarah Thompson) is hired by Jim (Bruce Thomas) and Violet Stanton (Kristen Dalton) to babysit their son Sam (Kai Caster.) Aware of the recent reports of missing people, Angie believes someone is stalking her. On the way to the Stantons' farm, her car breaks down. She is given a lift by Rick (Matt Dallas,) her friend and love interest, who promises to repair her car.
At the farm, Jim and Violet tell Angie that Sam is asleep upstairs, and leave her with instructions for the night. During the night, Angie receives several strange phone calls and hears noises outside. Frightened, Angie calls Rick and the Chief of Police (Bill Moseley). The police chief reassures Angie, and tells her that he will stop by later in the night. As the night moves on, she is attacked by a heavily scarred man. She barely escapes with Sam, dressed in a cowboy outfit, only to realize she forgot the keys to the jeep inside the house. She returns with Sam to the house to get the keys while the scarred man is still lying unconscious in the hallway. She leaves Sam by the front door and gets the key. As they are about to make their escape again, the scarred man awakens and grabs Angie by the ankle, pulling her to the ground and starts attacking Sam by lifting him off the ground and trying to strangle him. Angie grabs a golf club and beats the man unconscious. Turning him over she discovers he is not who she thought he was and realized the gravity of error in judgment. Sam removes his cowboy hat to reveal he is not who she thought he was and the story twist turns from there. Jim and Violet return home and recognize the man that had been following Angie as someone Jim says he thought he had killed in Romania and was a danger to them. The police officer (BIll Moseley) arrives at the farm to help Angie, he prepares to leave, but not before running a check on Angie's car. Jim returns to Angie but she has already freed herself and stabs Jim with the spear she picked up from the man who was chasing her. Angie makes a run for it and finds the scarred man who was following her dead and Rick (Matt Dallas), with a head wound. She stabs Jim in his foot and tried to run but gets caught again. The officer returns and disarms Jim but Violet then gets into the action and starts attacking people. Angie and the police officer leave in the couple's car, but Sam appears and slits the officers throat. Angie runs back to the barn and kills Sam. She then drives away but passes out shortly, then wakes up in a hospital. Another police officer informs her that Sam was not found.
