The Baby Movie Review


Horror at its most bizarre, and PG rated, to boot! The Baby stands as one of the genre's most perverse pictures, a simple tale about a social worker (Anjanette Comer) who becomes obsessed with her new case: a 21-year-old boy being raised as a baby, complete with crib and diapers. No one really thinks to ask mom (Ruth Roman, a Joan Crawford lookalike) if she's hatched some insane abuse plot. Rather, our heroine seemingly falls in love with the overgrown lad, and eventually kidnaps him. The ending is widely heralded as one of the most surprising in cinema history... and while I was sure I had it figured out, even I -- cynical film critic that I am -- nearly fell off the couch.

Recommended.
