Darn fine and creepily effective, even downright scary slice of Spanish TV horror, 28 December 2009
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

Horror cinema these days seems littered with tales of technology turned evil or at least turned conduit for evil or fearful things and The Baby's Room delves sweetly into the territory, it even qualifies as at least as good as some of the more notable entries of recent years and better than many. The films tells of Juan and Sonia, a young couple moving into a new house along with their baby. They buy a baby monitor so they can listen to their baby without keeping it in their room, but soon enough begin to experience strange sounds from the baby's room. At first they think it must just be burglars, but the truth is far stranger and as Juan starts to crack from the stress and strangeness, more dangerous too. Directed by Álex de la Iglesia and also written by him along with Jorge Guerricaechevarría the film operates with suspense wound up and events put in gear and escalated with as much attention to atmosphere and provision of quieter, atmospheric moments as the confines of TV movie length allow. The film does suffer a bit from contrivance in terms of character behaviour and a certain conventionality at times that is lessened in effect by the way the shortened run time doesn't allow so much development, but it is propelled throughout by the stellar acting. Javier Gutiérrez and Leonor Watling are a convincing, caring couple, one really feels for them, Gutiérrez is potent in his paranoia and Watling handles her fear and uncertainty very well also. The film moves along very well and has a few nightmarishly unnerving moments (notably one of the first views of the visual link up to the baby's room when it is seen just what sort of thing is happening to the child), when de la Iglesia puts the frighteners on he does so with freaky aplomb, giving events a real ghastly boost. Things turn a bit Twilight Zone plotwise and the explanations are a little shaky but the relative originality shines and the climax is surprising and efficiently macabre. Altogether I had a very fine time with this one, it is held back a little by length and perhaps biting off a little more than it can chew, but its strengths far outweighed its niggling minuses for me. A definite success then, and a film I recommend.
