Directed by Brandon Christensen
On the day Mary’s twins come, one is delivered stillborn. When she returns home to pick up the pieces and care for the surviving twin, Adam, strange things start happening. Mary is soon convinced a demonic entity is out to take Adam from her. But is the frightful figure Mary sees on the baby monitor real? Or is it in her head? Her husband thinks she’s losing it. But Mary knows she’s right. Brandon Christensen’s postpartum haunter sells its scares thanks to a intensely emotional performance by Christie Burke. Fan of THE BABADOOK or ANNABELLE? The stork’s brought something new for you. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.
A mom is convinced a demonic entity is out to harm her newborn son.
Cast: Michael Ironside, Christie Burke, Rebecca Olsen
This movie had the potential to be a lot better. It was almost there too.. it just relied a little too much on the clichés and recycled ideas... like the previous victim that fills the main character in and the demon/ghost/entity that moves shakily and sporadically. What kind of saved it were the twists it took and not really knowing if she was crazy or if there really was something after her son. Pretty decent. I would give it 3.5. Wouldn’t watch it again tho.
Worth the watch. I was not entertained with the witch part. It was a little bit dragging
Nicely made, very suspenseful & clever scripting! However the ending wasn’t very well thought out.
Watching the lead actress is about as exciting as watching someone spread mayonnaise on an egg white sandwich made with Wonderbread in a snow storm. She is bland is what I am trying to say. Bland and boring in a beige landscape of a house so that she could almost vanish into the background of blandness. This story has been done 100 times before in other movies with better casts and better results. The only good thing about this “ a demon is trying to steal my baby but nobody believes me and they all think I’m crazy” story is the ending. Thank the mighty gods of plot devices for the cop neighbor who thought it was a great idea to bring his gun to the neighborhood Halloween party.
I liked this movie. It reminded me of my sister. she has a twin. and the story goes, when my sister was born her twin was said to be stillborn. the hospital told my parents that my sisters' twin was stillborn and my sister Stephanie was barely alive. lucky to be breathing. so, they were happy to have one baby taking home and left it at that. my parents later ended up finding out the hospital lied that both babies were born. they were surprised. and well and my sister who is named Stephanie is a twin .never was told because parents just thought it would easier not to mourn a stillborn or have to blame oneself for the reason the death of the stillborn on the baby that lived. so on and so on. my parents of course were very young when this happy my father was just drafted in the navy to go to Vietnam and the story goes .... stated in Guam I don't even think they ever saw a white woman with blonde hair and blue eyes there during a time when my mom gave birth. maybe that is why they kept one of the twins for a memoir? American? Anyway, my points relate to this movie. but it is in this movie one of the babies dies really.. and one of the babies lives really. I liked it also cause the characters are just started and trying to make a go at life and I have heard that sometimes when a woman just has a baby she can get dark. I liked this movie. it really explains why some woman kills their children in behaviors that are out of their mind. not just baby killers they are going through chemical imbalance and it should be noted not in cold blood. not that I am trying to write a book... I like the shudders selection they get better and better by the movie. I used to watch creature features when I was little with dad . and that is why I like the shudder they play movies I remember that reminds me of that memory. but still, the new one's b rate horror keeps it up.
