The Lullaby otherwise known as Siembamba (For some reason) is a horror title with themes we've seen many times before.
It tells the story of a girl who moves back in with her mother after giving birth to her first child. She's immediatly plagued by visions and begins fear some entity is after her newborn.
Sadly this movies near exact plot has been done before, you'll see the "Twist" coming very early on primarily because it's recycled.
It looks creepy to it's credit and I love that cover art but beyond that there is absolutely nothing going for the film. I knew from the outset what was going on, how the movie was going to play out and what the big "Shocking" finale would be.
It's 2017 where are the new ideas people?
Looks the part
Seen it all before
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Does mental illness come from having a child or do you need to be mentally ill to have one in the first place?
Even a non-parent like me recognises that leaving a baby alone with her is a bad move
