- “The babysitter and the killer upstairs.”
Helen is 16 years old and goes to a babysitting service. She has to look after the 3 children of a young couple, who are away for the evening. When she arrives, they inform her that the children are already asleep and that they will not return late.
Helen moves into the couch in the big house and opens a book. The phone rings, but when she answers, no one talks to the other end of the line. A few minutes later, the phone rang again, and this time a freezing voice answered: “Did you go to see the children?” then nothing.
Thinking it was the father who was calling to see if everything was going well, she thought he had been cut off and would call again. In fact, a few minutes after the phone rang, “have you gone to see the children?” repeated the voice. “Mr. Stuart?” she asks, worried, but no one answers.
She decides to call the restaurant where her employers dine but are informed that they have been gone for 10 minutes. She then contacted the police, but they told her that they could do nothing against telephone hoaxes. As soon as she hung up, the stranger called her again: “Why didn’t you go see the children?”
Frightened, she contacted the police again, assuring them that the stranger was nearby and that she felt it. The agent at the other end of the line decides to take her number and reassures her: “the next time he calls you, we’ll trace the origin of the phone call, Okay, Helen? Stay calm, especially.”
Helen turns off the living room and locks herself in the kitchen, the phone next to her. It rings, and this time, she answers right away – ” what do you want from me at the end?”
– “Why did you turn off the lights?”
– “Who are you? What do you want from me?”
– “I see you, you know.”
– “Okay, all right, you scared me, you did it. You’re happy, is that what you wanted?”
– “Non. What I want is to bathe in your blood.”
Helen hangs up suddenly, terrified, but the bell rings again. “Let me go,” she screams in the receiver.
– “Helen, it’s me, we traced the call, you need to get out right now. The call came from one of the rooms in the House. Get out now!”
She runs towards the door and begins to open it with trembling. She panics, drops the key, picks it up, then gets up. She hears a noise in her back and sees a door open at the top of the stairs. A halo of light comes out of the children’s room, and she sees very clearly the silhouette of a man standing, turned towards her.
She finally manages to open the door and throws herself out, falling face to face with several police officers on the landing, weapon in hand. Immediately taken over by rescue, she has time to turn around and see the killer, handcuffed by the police. The man is covered in blood — the three children of the Stuart family.
