"The Baby" is crying out to become a major cult film

28 June 2011 1:39 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

A quick recommendation of a new DVD of an old cult film: 1973's "The Baby," from director Ted Post. The story is sort of "Cinderella" if instead of forcing Cinderella to do manual labor, the wicked stepmother and stepsisters brutalized her into pretending she was a giant overgrown baby so they could suckle off the government teat by collecting her welfare checks. There's no Prince Charming in this version, but there is a charming social worker who believes the "baby" (whose name is, well, Baby) is being mistreated and abused and is capable of acting like the adult he physically is.

For the life of me I can't figure out how this film came to exist. A world in which no one but a single social worker is concerned or even skeptical about the "Grey Gardens" nutjobs and their adult baby son? Even her bosses at the welfare offices tell »
