Audience Reviews for The Baby

  • Jan 27, 2014
    What was that?! Dumb early 70's horror film that is only worth seeing for Ruth Roman's performance.

    This is sort of an analogue to the Stepford Wives w/ Kate Ross. Another tribute to the originality of the '70's macabre genre.

    At last, a movie that delivers a strong Christian message, love thy brother, and keep him in a near infantile state so as to control him. That is what Christians do, isn't it?

    A social worker becomes obsessed with a family who keeps their mentally retarded adult son in a crib wearing a diaper; his mother and two sisters are willing to do ANYTHING to assure that "baby" is not taken away from them. The only things that stand out in this acceptable thriller are Ruth Roman's campy performance (a bit like a nastier "Mommie Dearest" with Suzanne Pleshette's voice) and the twist ending.
