I went to a baby shower of a good friend the other day and it put me in baby frame of mind. But my mind is twisted- so here are five horror movies featuring pregnant women that I found on Youtube.
You may not be surprised that a couple of them were made right after the landmark Roe v Wade case.
1- Rosemary’s Baby
This is the best film of the bunch- lots of suspense as we see the ever cute Mia Farrow fall victim to the conspiracy of a Satanic cult. I don’t why this film, which was originally in color, is in black and white on Youtube, but it’s still a good watch.
2- The Stranger Within
While technically, not a horror film, this TV movie made right after Roe v. Wade, features Barbara Eden from “I Dream of Jeannie” struggling with a mysterious pregnancy. Drink every time you see a pendulum, a clock, a car pulling in or out of the driveway or Barbra Eden guzzling super hot coffee – pre-Starbucks!
3- It’s Alive
Another movie made right after Roe v. Wade with the tag-line for “There’s only one thing wrong with the Davis baby…. It’s Alive.” Don’t scare the baby in this movie, he’ll kill you.
4- The Brood
Mama gets what mama wants, and this case, it’s murder. Samantha Eggar stars as woman who creates a brood of children that do her bidding after undergoing experimental psychotherapy.
5- Braindead A.K.A. Dead Alive.
Peter Jackson made this film that features a zombie baby. It’s full of dark humor and plenty of gore.
