On Halloween night a woman is babysitting a bratty kid (Chris Graver, the director's son) who is playing gruesome practical jokes on her. Also ruining her night is the kid's mother's ex-husband (Peter Jason), who she had committed to a mental hospital years before, and wants revenge on her. This really dull film tries to be a spoof but isn't really funny. The scenes with the kid's pranks get old really fast and the killer isn't scary and is mostly a buffoon with a high voice, especially in the comical scene when he escapes dressed in a nurse's uniform! Carrie Snodgress, David Carradine, and Paul Bartel all appear in this movie and do nothing to help it, and the director, Gary Graver, was a photographer who worked with Orson Welles in his later years.

Is it worth tracking down? DVD?

It was released on DVD by Code Red but it isn't worth getting, its a terrible movie. The remastering job they did is good and better than the murky version I watched on YouTube.
