Movie Reviews

Baby.A classic.
John Colum Hughes | Spain and Eire | 11/02/2006

"I saw this film years ago and it left so many memories in my head.I tried for years to track it down.What didnt help my search was the misguided belief that Joan Crawford was the mother of Baby.A chance stumble upon the name of Ruth Roman Threw this baby(pardon the pun)to light.It is a bizarre and truly original movie.I prize my dvd collection and have over 2,000 titles,all original,with so many cinema classics from Blade runner to The Godfather to the Big Lebowski....but I can confirm that this movie,for its sheer originality and Ruth Roman,will sit proudly alongside them.
The dvd itself has no just starts straight into the opening credits.But the image quality is good as is the sound.Get the movie and enjoy it with friends or by yourself and it certainly will leave its mark.Its a coup getting it.Rock on Baby."

"This might be one of my all-time fave camp movies, and is also one that leaves me disturbed after watching it. Lovely Anjanette Comer is a social worker who seeks out the assignment of looking into a family of 3 women who are raising an adult man who still functions as a baby. Turns out the women - a violent mother and her two deranged daughters - don't seem to want the "baby" to learn how to walk and talk. At the same time, one of the sisters doesn't mind slipping into his crib at night . . . The mother is played by Ruth Roman, who played a beautiful and feminine socialite in Hitchcok's Strangers on a Train; here, she is a seedy, chain-smoking, trash-talking old gal in a role that could have been played by a latter-day Shelley Winters. One of the daughters has a hairstyle that looks like it could have been part of a horror movie get-up, and the other one is a characters who likes to punish her brother by shocking him with some kind of electric prod, and who will only let her boyfriend kiss her if he lets her hold a lighter flame to his hand first. So, yeah, a really sick family - and then there's the "baby," a grown man in a crib. When the movie gets really warped is when you realize that the one "sane" person here, the social worker, might actually be a little off herself, and seems to have some unusual interest in the "baby." This movie is a great campy romp that fans of warped cinema will enjoy, but don't blame me if you can't shake the creepiness of it out of your system for a while after watching."
A deranged and highy entertaining curiousity

"This one is a real doozy. Similar in feel to other weird horror/camp classics from the era like Baby Jane, Aunt Alice, and How Awful About Helen, this is a neat little creep fest. Ruth Roman is very much like the Aldrich divas in this one and the story has to be seen to believed. Suffice it to say, you probably will never forget it."
