Trivia

This is the true story of the kidnapping of Rachael Ann White who was taken from her grandmother's home on February 19, 1988 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The kidnapper was 38-year old Maritza Rentz. Rentz had an abortion in October 1987 for medical reasons. She stated at her trail that she was trying to save her third marriage to Air Force Captain, Paul Rentz, and was hoping the baby would help. She expressed remorse and stated she had not gone to the Abbott home to kidnap the baby, but that when she arrived she felt that God wanted her to take the child. She gained entry into the home by posing as baby sitter. Friends stated that Rentz was obviously pregnant before October 1987 but after a time did not appear to be pregnant anymore. Friends also noticed when they saw the baby, who Rentz called Aurora Helen, she was much older than four days. Knowing there had been a kidnapping the same day as Rentz supposedly went into labor, friends contacted the Air Force police. Baby Rachael was returned to her mother, Cora Abbott, four days later.

Goofs

When Cal marks the due date of the baby on the 20th and 21st, a February calendar is shown with 28 days. The real kidnapping happened on February 19, 1988. February 1st was on a Monday in 1988 and it was a leap year with the 29th also on a Monday. So, this calendar is not correct for 1988, however, it is also not correct for 1992, the year this movie was released. See more »

Boring and mis-cast
28 December 2016 | by (California) – See all my reviews

"Baby Snatcher" claims it's based on a true story, and that's probably right. But it doesn't necessarily make for a good film. One of the problems is the casting. Michael Madsen plays the clueless husband. Madsen is the award winning actor famous for such films as Reservoir Dogs (1992), Getaway (1994), Species (1995), Kill Bill (2003), and The Hateful Eight (2015), so his playing against type here is not entirely believable.

Veronica Hamel, on the other hand, is known for her work in the TV series Hill Street Blues (1981-7) and Lost (2004-10), and her desperate scheming wife doesn't seem to fit.

Setting aside the casting issues, the story itself takes a long time to evolve.
