Just in theory, The Baby is enough of a demented concept to intrigue anyone looking for a highly unusual exploitation film.  I'm not sure how plausible it is for a adult to exhibit successive signs of infantile behavior, but I believe it, dammit!  You've never seen coddling quite like this, folks!  The Baby begins with a social worker checking up on a household belonging to a mother and her two bastardized daughters, PLUS one brother who is a grown man with the mentality of a baby. He isn't just acting like a baby, nor is he mentally retarded.  It just so happens that mommy has had a few failed marriages and finds it to be a deserving coping mechanism to deprive her son of the attainment of "growing."  Hence, he remains in a "crib-ridden" state of infancy.  Can feminism get any more extreme?!  The social worker bonds with the man-child, plays with him and earns his trust, while harboring a deep concern...

The Baby is a weird flick, even for those who are into, "weird" movies!  Now, it isn't a gore flick or especially violent, just to get that out of the way.  It messes with you on a different stratum, of which most people have thought of at one point and usually laughed about: a grown man as a baby.  Granted, you WANT to laugh at The Baby but damned if you cannot!  It's just THAT bizarre.  It's still chock-full of great scenes, such as the babysitter letting Baby cop a suckle off her tit while obviously enjoying it.  Not to mention Baby's birthday party which looks more like a hang-out for bikers and junkies, as well as the sleazy uncle roaming around, trying to get some sex off the sister.  Good stuff!  Those abusive sisters with their semi-pedophiliac urges and their cattle prod were kind of hot in a "sick" sense.  The ending was completely out of left field.  One of the few film endings that actually left me speechless.

If you like oddball stuff then
The Baby is definitely an obscure gem to check out.
