Storyline

An expectant couple's intimate weekend turns to terror when they discover their secluded country inn is a haunted maternity home where unwanted infants and mothers were murdered. Inspired by the true story of the infamous 'Butterbox Babies', THE CHILD REMAINS is a twisting supernatural thriller and homage to slow-burn vintage horror like The Shining, Rosemary's Baby and Session 9. Starring Cannes' Best Actress winner Suzanne Clement (Mommy), Allan Hawco (Hyena Road), Shelley Thompson (Labyrinth) and genre hero Geza Kovacs (Scanners, The Dead Zone), THE CHILD REMAINS is a character-driven, psychological scary movie for adults that will leave audiences breathless.

Trivia

Loosely based on The Ideal Maternity Home (IMH), located in Chester, Nova Scotia. The IMH, which was a maternity home, for unwed mothers, operated from 1928 until 1947 by William Peach Young, a chiropractor and unordained minister of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and his wife Lila Gladys Young, a midwife, although she advertised herself as an obstetrician. The business was eventually shut down by the government. See more »

The camera work here is terrible and the effects are worse. Suzanne Clément deserves so much better than this and she is the only reason I haven't given this a 3
