While the husband is playing poker and smoking in the waiting room with the other husbands there is a bloodbath in the wake of the delivery room. The baby has escaped and left a bloody murder trail of claws and bites. The bay must be found and destroyed.

This film screams 70s which is awesome! We have bright red blood, bad acting, drama, a Go Go girl death and screaming baby monster that we never really see fully which is great. Claws and bite marks to the people’s deaths and some red blood that Dario would be proud of. The conflict of the parents on if they real do want to destroy the beast as it is their child is entertaining and the sound effects and baby effects are worth the film alone.

Rating: I love this film it’s a classic when it comes to 70s horror and I believe it could be cult classic also. Unfortunate the film looses some its charm because of the cheesie sequels but the angry monster baby is a classic beast of horror. The Go Go girl alone is worth on beer on its own.


6/10 Beers!
