Watch Nanny Online: 2022 has been a major year for horror with the likes of Smile and Barbarian exploiting the versatility of the genre and Terrifier 2’s gorefest becoming an Oscar entry. To end the glory year of horror with a bang, we have Nikyatu Jusu’s feature debut Nanny which has created quite a stir at the festivals. Nanny’s world premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival won it the Grand Jury Prize. Adding to the impressive list of Blumhouse horrors, Jusu’s film combines several thriller tropes with the social aspects of an immigrant’s struggles to bring about a nightmarish psychological horror.


This isn’t the first time Jusu has made an impact at the Sundance. Her short Suicide by Sunlight which premiered at Sundance depicted the story of a black vampire whose melanin protected her from the sun. The director is not straying from the path of horror and instead diving into its deep ends with Nanny. In an interview with Indiewire Jusu said “I wanted to remix this story of a domestic experience with the genre. A lot of the films I love do that. I wanted to remix the American immigrant experience with the genre. A lot of people have a way into that — whether you were raised by a nanny or your mother was one.”

According to the official synopsis, Nanny will show the journey of Aisha, an immigrant from Senegal who has come to America in hopes of a better life for her and her son Lamine. Getting a job at the luxurious house of the affluent couple Adam and Amy provide Aisha with a false sense of hope. While taking care of their daughter Rose, Aisha realizes that the picture-perfect couple isn’t what they seem. She misses her son who she hopes to see soon. With Lamine’s arrival approaching, Aisha drowns in cryptic nightmares and hauntings that leave her puzzled and horrified.


The trailer bears the weight that Aisha lives with. Being away from her son and trying to make a living in a strange country is hard enough. Add horrors and hallucinations into the mix and she’s bound to crack. Although she has support from her new romantic interest Malik, Aisha’s struggles in the face of the newfound miseries are her own.
