Played by: Rebecca De Mornay
Duties: Must care for the daughter and newborn son of Claire and Michael Bartel (of no relation to this writer). Though the Bartels have no idea she's the widow of the doctor who molested mom Claire Bartel and then committed suicide. Yeah, this film's dark.
Pros: Not a whole lot. Unless you count breastfeeding another woman's baby without her permission as a "pro." Helpful? Maybe. Demented? Yes.
Cons: Encourages the daughter to tell lies; tries to convince Claire that Michael is cheating; kills people
Recommend to a friend?: That whole murder part is leading us to erase "Peyton" from our address book.
