Killer kids are a perennial horror favorite of mine, but I have a couple of stipulations: first, I prefer gleeful little monsters above stone-faced mannequins. If they're not enjoying themselves amidst the bloodshed, then why should I? Second, there's strength in numbers. One evil child? No problem, punt the little brat across the room. Once they start outnumbering the adults, that's when things get scary.
Baby-Sitting is a short film written, directed, and produced by Lucas Masson. It focuses on a young woman who's just accepted a job watching a couple of what appear to be very well behaved kids. Too well-behaved actually - they're pretty close to catatonic. After inviting a couple of friends over to keep her company, it appears that this will just be another unusual work-related story to tell. That is, until her friends start poking a little too much fun at the tykes, and the kids decide to start a game of their own...
