For Sarah, it was just a job that started off like any other babysitting gig. But Sarah wasn’t the normal babysitter, and Jack wasn’t quite the normal boy that he appeared to be. He has a secret, a secret that he keeps trying to share, if he could only find someone to listen to him about the monsters in his room. As the night goes on and things start to turn from cute and harmless to creepy and haunting, Sarah can’t help but wonder… what if he’s telling the truth? What if there are monsters in his room?
