Four young offenders and their care workers visit the remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare.
A caring mother loses her sanity, setting off a chain of events resulting in tragedy and murder. The story of Casey Pollack unfolds from two very different perspectives when one night in the woods culminates in absolute terror.
In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before.
Alexandra reluctantly tags along for Slasher Sleepout, an extreme event that is part camping trip, part haunted house, and part escape room. But when the fun turns deadly, Alex has to play the game if she wants to make it out alive.
An oily, amoral estate agent is preyed upon by one of his victims, who quietly moves into his flat and, unseen, begins a deliciously malicious campaign of revenge. Two Pigeons is a dark comedy with a sinister streak.
Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden ... See full summary »
Although it has been stated, by at least one critic, that the film is a satire of Tories (Conservatives), this is not entirely true. At no point are the allegiances of any of the politicians actually specified. One or two of them are serving ministers, and at least one is a judge, but the working class accents of some of the adult babies suggest that some of them may be Labour MPs or even from the Liberal Democrats. None are Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish. See more »
The idea sounded very interesting and creative, so there was enough to make one want to see it. The cover looked quite eerie. So saw 'Adult Babies' with genuine interest and wanting to at least sort of like it even if it had many problems.
Seeing it, well 'Adult Babies' certainly did have many problems and it is pretty much exactly the same feelings had when watching a few other films recently. It has its moments and good points certainly, but just underwhelmed even having prepared myself to not expect an awful lot. Not a terrible film or without redeeming qualities, and there is far worse out there of the genre and overall. Liked the concept for 'Adult Babies' somewhat, the execution was generally lacking.
'Adult Babies' at least didn't insult my intelligence. It at least didn't make me angry watching it. Despite giving it a relatively low score and negative review, it even didn't make me regret watching it altogether, there are imminently worse films out there.
It starts off quite well and there are a few amusing and unsettling moments throughout.
Did think it didn't look too bad for a film not made on a high budget, the music set the tone reasonably well and some of the acting is above average.
However, not all the actors are entirely at ease and the characters are not easy to endear to with some irrational ways of thinking going on. The script is very stilted on the most part, while the ridiculousness goes well overboard a lot of the time that it becomes tiresomely dumb and the elements intended to be creepy were spoiled by random gratuity and predictability and bordered on being uncomfortably weird in an excessive sense.
Tension and suspense is next to none after a promising start, the latter stages become very vague and lack explanation and there are parts that come out of nowhere and add absolutely nothing.
Summing up, lacklustre but could have been worse. 4/10 Bethany Cox
