Critic Reviews:

The Baby is grim and filled with unhappy oddballs. It will almost certainly stun you with its rising audacity.


The Baby defies the constraints of genre. It has one foot in the “hag horror” gutter of the mid-Sixties to mid-Seventies, movies that cast aging Hollywood luminaries like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Olivia de Havilland, and Tallulah Bankhead as monstrous Golden Girls.


The Baby is filled to the bursting point with sexual neuroses that not even Krafft-Ebing could have imagined and would have sent Freud throwing his hands up in defeat.
