This nanny has more on her hands than a stubborn child.

Blumhouse Productions and Amazon Prime Video this week won world rights to the award-winning horror film Nanny, as reported by Deadline, and plan to debut it on Prime Video and in theaters on an undisclosed date.

Nanny–from first-time feature writer/director Nikyatu Jusu–recently enjoyed its coming-out party at Sundance by taking home the festival’s grand jury prize, the first horror movie to be so honored.

The film stars Anna Diop (Us), Michelle Monaghan (The CraftLegacy), Sinqua Walls (The 15:17 to Paris), Morgan Spector (The Gilded Age) and Rose Decker (Mare of Easttown).

The storyline follows a Senegalese immigrant nanny (Diop) who is “piecing together a new life in New York City while caring for the child of an Upper East Side family, who is forced to confront a concealed truth that threatens to shatter her American Dream,” according to the logline.

Blumhouse chief executive Jason Blum called Nanny “a gem of a horror film that combines impressive filmmaking and powerful storytelling.” Julie Rapaport, head of movies at Amazon Studios, said the film is “as haunting as it is powerful.”

The film’s executive producers include Jusu, Blum, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, Ryan Heller, Michael Bloom and Rebecca Cammarata.
