A social worker tries to rescue an adult baby from his very creepy family in this essential ‘70s cult classic. Ann is determined to help “Baby”, who she suspects is being kept in his infantilized state by mean mommy Ruth Roman. But the more Ann tries to play miracle worker, the more she puts herself in grave danger. Mommy likes things just as they are! One of the weirdest horror films to come out of the 1970’s (and that’s saying a lot), THE BABY is the kind of twisted delight you flip out over – and then spend the rest of your life showing to friends.

Cast: Anjanette Comer, Ruth Roman, Marianna Hill
One movie that more than earns its "cult classic" status, it straddles the line between hagsploitation/Grande Dame Guignol (Whatever Happened to Baby Jane) and groovy 70s freak-out (those caftans, baby). Played too straight to fall into "black comedy," but pitched waaaay beyond an ordinary melodrama, The Baby hacks its own path to somewhere new and disturbing. Ruth Roman and Anjanette Comer are perfectly matched as antagonists, with strong support from Suzanne Zenor, Marianna Hill, and Beatrice Manley.
Yep. This movie is all KINDS of messed up, and I love it.
I'll never forget this movie, that's for sure.
insane, absolutely insane. so much fun. highly recommend.
