* CompleteMonster: The Stranger is a SerialKiller who stalks, terrifies and eventually murders young women [[Main/ForTheEvulz just for the joy of it]]. He prefers to target babysitters, having no compunction about killing the children they’re watching over either. He kills a random babysitter and two kids on the other side of town, then preys on Jill for the rest of the film, killing her best friend Tiffany in the proces. He's eventually stopped and arrested, but the trauma from the experience is so great that Jill suffers a psychotic break, dreaming that the Stranger is still there to torment her.
