Sadistic horror pic that has achieved classic cult status for being so irreverently camp.

'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.

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 film [is] a warped mirror on American family life, depicting parenting as an act of grotesque selfishness.
