Social worker Ann Gentry (Anjanette Comer) visits her latest assignment, the Wadsworth clan, consisting of a boozy, suffocating matriarch (Ruth Roman); her two demented daughters (Suzanne Zenor and Marianna Hill); and Baby, her 21-year-old son who's being kept in an infantile state, complete with crib and diapers. Ann makes it her mission to rescue Baby, but she's harboring a secret, which leads to an unforgettable finale in this twisted shocker.

Sadistic horror pic that has achieved classic cult status for being so irreverently camp.
There's a master's thesis on The Baby waiting to be written and I'll be first in line to read it, but not because I expect to find the film's provocations tamed or its utter bizarreness gently folded into the seething swamp of things that make us go hmm.
'The Baby' is absolutely gaga. Or should that be goo-goo-gaga? It's a multiple-personality disorder of a film that vacillates among the extremes of weirdo exploitation, psychological horror and social-reform drama.
... the film has the look and feel of a TV cop drama, and a politically incorrect, outlandish storyline that couldn't be filmed today.
