Storyline

Four ex classmates, Ángela, Olivia, Claudia and Manuela get together to celebrate Ángela's pregnancy at her country which is located one hour away from the city. It has been a while since the four of them saw each other for the last time and one recently committed betrayal threatens to destroy their long and deep friendship. The revelation of a dark secret and a series of violent deaths transform the baby shower into a nightmare. A very disturbing one. Written by Pablo Illanes

Rosemary's baby on speed...

Baby Shower (2011) - 4 former classmates having a reunion to celebrate the 1st-born of one of them.

-As a big fan of Spanish movies, in this case a South-American Spanish movie (Chile), and one of my very first Spanish letdowns! Actors are struggling with the story and are constant in search to develop their character, probably the fault of Pablo Illanes who didn't only directed the movie but also responsible at the same time for the scenario. Wonder why things turned out pretty bad with a straightforward storyline with less till no sub-plots, so... things weren't that difficult. The movie is at moments pretty cruel, harsh and brutal and on the other hand, gentle and filled with happiness. These characterizations combined, develop a barbaric piece of cinema, although most of its effect goes down the drain because of its wrong soundtrack (Dance-music?), pretty poor worked out story-line, messy directing and actors in search of their own character. Fill it up with a lot of unanswered questions and there you are, a movie that didn't really satisfied your needs the moment the end-credits roll-up. Couldn't help it but while watching it felt like a pretty poor but violent distill of Rosemary's Baby (1968). Nope not really a recommendation of mine though as each time in my case, make up your own mind, and at the same time, don't tell me I didn't warn you!
