THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE
FRIDAY, 11.50pm, BBC1
A movie from the golden age of daft thrillers about families menaced by insidious intruders, Curtis Hanson’s irresistible film is the story of an evil nanny.
This child-minding role could not have been placed in better care than that of Rebecca De Mornay; she gives a splendidly chilly performance, as she sets out to destroy a naive woman and steal her family.
This 1992 offering, also stars Annabella Sciorra, Matt McCoy, Ernie Hudson, Madeline Zima and Julianne Moore.
The original music score was composed by Graeme Revell.
