Nifty little doc

Director Ted Post talks about directing the offbeat low-budget horror shocker "The Baby" in this brief, but interesting and illuminating 20 minute documentary. Post reveals that he was reluctant to direct the picture because he found the dark premise too negative and it took about a year for writer Abe Polsky to convince him to do it. Moreover, Post admits that he isn't a big fan of the horror genre and that his primary interest was to humanize the characters. He also talks about putting an emphasis on the sexual tension intrinsic to the premise, the casting of Ruth Roman, the fact that his friends were genuinely shocked that he made the movie, and doing a Q&A session at a screening where the picture was well received. In addition, we find out that Post has a cameo as a dart player at Baby's birthday party and that he's the type of director who's happiest when he's on a set making a movie. Worth a watch for fans of the film.
