The warning of the week is careful who to let baby sit your house. Here the wacko is a needy girl who wants to be part of their family. The family is mourning the loss of one of their 2 daughters. She seems nice but tries too hard as she infiltrates the family as she stays with them when the family returns early. It's a plausible scenario.

When Kyle Lawrence, his wife Sara, and their teen daughter Amy return early from their annual lake holiday, their housesitter Rebecca has no place to stay until her next job, so Sara lets her stay with them for a few days. Rebecca plays the perfect guest and housekeeping help, and even assists Sara with renovating secondhand furniture. But while the Lawrences were gone, Rebecca had actually gone through all their belongings, especially mementos. Amy, who never got over failing to save her kid sister from drowning after fallen through the frozen lake, mistrusts and resents the invasive "substitute sister" who manages to make her parents believe that she's been abusing pills. When self-absorbed Amy and her obsessive quest for dirt on the newcomer wear out her boyfriend Travis' patience, Rebecca seduces him. Rebecca (actually just another alias) will stop at nothing to either find her perfect family or gruesomely punish everyone for their "betrayal."

Careful who babysits your house
Sister, Let's Play House
"Lacey" and "Billy" arrive at her former home, after a period of parental estrangement. Unfortunately, they walk in on a tragic and terrifying scene. While the credits roll, the story changes abruptly to a cold winter setting. In a larger Massachusetts home, a young woman examines every nook and cranny of her environment. She is especially interested in old family photographs. As an opening voice-over reveals, this is "House Sitter" Ashley Dulaney (as Rebecca). As you'll immediately decipher, Ms. Delaney has an unnatural interest in her employer's family. And, yes, she is immediately recognizable as a possibly deranged "Lifetime" TV movie character. When the family cuts their vacation short, Dulaney finagles an invitation to stay over because she supposedly has no place to go while awaiting her next house-sitting job...
The family consists of furniture-restoring Kate Ashfield (as Sarah),her somewhat sullen husband Sean O'Bryan (as Kyle Lawrence) and their gloomy daughter Shelby Young (as Amy). Everyone is sad because another daughter, Lauren, recently died in a tragic drowning. Perky in pink, Dulaney begins to ingratiate herself into the host family. This story, written by Marcy Holland, adheres to its formula. Dulaney is engaging as the seemingly psycho house sitter. Direction by Jim Issa is strong and Ms. Young is especially convincing as the somewhat neglected daughter who suspects Dulaney may not be all there. There should be a stronger tie-in with "Lacey" and "Billy". Also, a line about transportation being affected by the snowy weather conditions would have helped explain why the family allows Dulaney to overstay her welcome.
***** The House Sitter (12/27/2015) Jim Issa ~ Ashley Dulaney, Kate Ashfield, Shelby Young, Sean O'Bryan
What did I just watch?
Plot holes galore. I know this is said quite a bit on this site, but this TRULY IS A WASTE OF TIME! The ending (if you want to call it that) is as stupid as they come. Nothing gets explained. Don't say you haven't been warned.
What happened to the lady in the antique shop? What happened to the boyfriend? What happened to the house sitter? What happened to the ending?
