Macabre Pregnancy Horror with Lynchian Twist!
15 May 2020 | by Lynchian696See all my reviews

The story is centered around Nurse Maria (Natja Brunckhorst) and her relationship with mysterious with Lothar (Dominic Raacke). In their early encounters, it is the fast purely libidinous sex that keeps Lothar and Maria together. Maria accepts his offer for a one-night stand, but a burst condom is a macabre hint that their one-night stand will not remain without consequences and escalates further and further to an ending that will leave your jaw on the floor. This film is a persuasively atmospheric scaffold, formally at least one leg in the art house cinema, mixed with a very stylish, dreamlike neo-noir cinematography similar to Mullholand drive or Inland Empire. It boasts dark lighting and sultry locations, with perfect soundtrack to match. The film is rarely linear with full of erotic macabre scenes and a weird climax. Babylon proves to be, one of the best original erotic horror thrillers ever made. It is well-paced, well-directed with excellent performances by Natja Brunckhorst, Veronica Ferres and Michael Greiling. Sadly, it is overlooked in the horror/thriller realm and deserves more attention.
