Mrs Wadsworth's (Ruth Roman) son Baby (David Manzy) is a grown up man, but he's kept like a baby, meaning his intellectual and physical capabilities are those of a nine month old. Now previous social workers have just written him off, but Ann (Anjanette Comer), who has only recently experienced loss herself, really takes to the case, more than his mother and his sisters Germaine (Marianna Hill) and Alba (Susanne Zenor) like her to - especially since she insists that Baby is capable of more than they claim him to be. But the Wadsworths are very protective of their little one, so much so that Ann tries to go the legal route to have Baby checked - which is when his mom suddenly caves in and even invites Ann to Baby's birthday party. But once there, Ann is drugged and tied up, and who knows what the Wadsworths might have planned with her if it wasn't for Baby, who has long taken her and now helps her to break free, and even comes with her. But Mom and Germaine and Alba aren't of the kind to give up on their next of kin that easily ...

 

The Baby is a typical piece of 1970s cinema, back when "what the fuck"-plots were told in all seriousness, and somehow these movies worked as well - and that said, The Baby is actually a pretty decent movie, it's solidly directed, well acted, the script, as outlandish as it might seem, is also conclusive and well thought through. And while it's true that not everyone will "get" this movie for its mere out there concept, those who do, and/or those who are into 1970s weirdness, will surely enjoy this one!
