VIDEO: Five Horror Films With Pregnant Women

Sep 25, 2010 · 300826 views

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.

    You forgot the French horror movie “Inside.” A pregnant woman is home alone on Christmas Eve when she gets a strange visitor/home intruder: A strange woman who has come to take her unborn baby; and she brought SCISSORS!!!

    Rosemary’s baby is really worth a watch. Great movie! It also portrays the role of women in the 1960s well….controlled by men and the older generation.

    Rosemary’s Baby was, and still is, one of the creepiest movies I’ve ever seen. And they did that through plot, camera angles, and great acting. It’s a classic!!
