All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

The Baby (1973)

The Baby

Director: Ted Post
Starring: Anjanette Comer, Ruth Roman


Premise:
A social worker takes on a case of the Wadsworth family which consists of a mother, two grown daughters, and a grown son who has the capacity of an infant.

My Take:
Strange doesn't begin to describe this movie. A grown man is treated like a baby and the family claims its because he is mentally challenged. He wears diapers, he cries, he gets spoon fed by his over protective mother and sisters which also seem to be hiding a secret. Throw in a female social worker wants the case as a way to deal with her husband's recent demise. The ending has a dual twist which is so amazingly awesome and disturbing.
At almost forty years old, the movie is slightly dated. But don't let that small detail detour you from this little gem.

Rating: So Good
