Baby Blood Details


This perverse, blood-drenched horror film from France stars Emmanuelle Escourrou as Yanka, a young pregnant woman whose lamentable existence as a circus employee is made a bit more harrowing when a slimy parasite leaps from the body of one of the zoo's leopards and enters her womb. Possessed of an evil intelligence and cranky disposition, the organism transforms her fetus into a snarling little jerk of a monster with a curious interest in human nature and an insatiable thirst for blood. Drifting from town to town, Yanka supplies the unborn creature with new victims, all the while conversing with the chatty little monster (making for some of the weirdest dialogue scenes in film history) and heeding its instructions to carry it back to the sea which spawned it... it seems the creature is some sort of intelligent mutant form of sea sludge, born of industrial pollutants and whatnot. Pretty disgusting stuff, but gorehounds with a wry sense of humor will probably lap it up. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
