About The Guardian

The Guardian, released in 1990, is a horror film directed by William Friedkin. The movie follows a young couple, Phil and Kate, who hire a nanny to take care of their newborn child. However, they soon discover that the nanny, Camilla, is not what she seems. Camilla is actually a druidic witch who sacrifices infants to a tree in the woods.

The film received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising Friedkin's direction and the performances of the cast, while others criticized the film's slow pacing and lack of scares. Despite this, The Guardian has gained a cult following over the years and is considered a classic horror film by some.

One of the film's most notable scenes involves a stunt gone wrong, in which a stuntman was severely injured. The incident led to a lawsuit and controversy surrounding the safety of stunt work in Hollywood.

Overall, The Guardian is a creepy and atmospheric horror film that may not be for everyone, but is worth a watch for fans of the genre.
