It looks like Luca Guadagnino‘s Suspiria remake won’t be the only horror movie this year paying homage to Dario Argento‘s classic. The first trailer for the indie horror comedy The Night Sitter has debuted, and it’s throwing off some serious vibes, from the impressive color-rich cinematography to the ferocious trio of witches raising havoc.
The Night Sitter stars Elyse DuFour (The Walking Dead) as a con artist who poses as a baby sitter in order to rob a wealthy occultist, but when his son Kevin (Jack Champion) accidentally summons a trio of witches known as The Three Mothers (wink wink), the unlikely duo has to band together to survive the night. Written and directed by Abiel Bruhn and John Rocco (A Not so Pleasant Surprise), The Night Sitter comes from executive producer Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination). The film hasn’t nailed down a release date yet, but you can watch the first trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“A scheming con artist (Elyse DuFour, AMC’s The Walking Dead) poses as innocent babysitter “Amber” to steal from Ted Hooper, a wealthy occult enthusiast with a reclusive son named Kevin. Her crew arrives to clean out the house just as Kevin stumbles upon one of his father’s most prized artifacts and unwittingly summons a trio of witches known as The Three Mothers. As the playful, sadistic witches start picking people off, Amber and Kevin form an unlikely bond and try to survive the night together.”
