This is an older film, but still scary even after all these years. It's about a prominent gynecologist and obstetrician who has been sexually molesting his patients. When a patient finally comes forward and presses charges, dozens of other women follow suit. He kills himself and his pregnant wife loses everything, including her baby. She sets off on a path of revenge to make that first woman who filed charges against her husband pay a terrible price, by taking her husband and child too. That all starts by becoming their nanny and doctoring the wife's asthma inhaler. Uber creepy, especially the scene where she breastfeeds the woman's newborn. Ew.
