Today, we honour the 90s and its incomparable delivery of riveting thrillers by revisiting the 1992 classic ‘The Hands that Rocks the Cradle.’
In it, a web of wickedness is woven when a doctor molests one of his patients and commits suicide when it emerges that he has done the same to several women within his affluent community.
It isn’t long before his widow, posing as a nanny, moves into one of the homes affected by her husband’s wicked deed with a plot to avenge him….and her dead baby.
