I was pretty young when my parents had a movie on, probably around 1993-96.
Opening scene of the movie is set in a modern suburban neighborhood at night, and there is a police cordon surrounding a house. The adults escaped, but left the baby in the crib. They seemed to need to escape because an yet-unseen robot had malfunctioned and was somehow threatening.
After that they said it was too scary for me and put me to bed. I frequently wonder what the movie was and want to see it now that I'm adult but no amount of googling has helped.
