Baby Blues (Lars E. Jacobson and Amardeep Kaleka, 2008)

I've watched a lot of movies-- probably way too many-- over the past couple of weeks, from the sublime to the ridiculous, and all points in between. Baby Blues a little straight-to-video thriller that just recently hit the shelves, may be the best of them. This is the reason I watch so many awful horror films-- because every once in a while, I find a microbudget movie that impresses me more than almost anything I've seen from the major studios in the past five years. There was Shallow Ground. There was Deadbirds. Now there is Baby Blues.

Jimmy (The Bad News Bears remake's Ridge Canipe) is a rural fourteen-year-old with problems. He's not quite the town bully, but he's not a model kid, either. His dad (Anonymity's Joel Bryant) is a long-distance trucker who's around, it seems, just long enough to get his mom (I Know Who Killed Me's Colleen Porch) pregnant every once in a while; as we open, Jimmy is one of four kids, the youngest an infant, and mom is suffering some serious post-natal depression, which is augmented by a distressingly rapid slide into full-out madness. Dad has to make a run to Tallahassee, and not long after he gets out of sight, Mom snaps for good. This, as it turns out, is a very, very bad thing for her children. Jimmy finds himself in the uncomfortable position of having to protect his younger siblings from their mother's murderous wrath.

Make no mistake, this is an exceedingly dark movie, and one that will disturb and offend many viewers, but it gets its power by the fact that it's frighteningly well-acted and very well directed by first-timers Jacobson and Kaleka, who have obviously done their homework better than most of the first-time directors working within the system these days.

This was an amazing movie about a woman who has a complete mental breakdown after giving birth to her fourth child. The actress did an exceptional job with her role. She was very convincing! I just want to warn any potential viewers who want to watch this film. It is quite disturbing and if you have a low tolerance level for violence against children then please avoid this movie. I normally cannot stomach it myself but I found that I just could not turn the movie off because I wanted to see the ending. Personally, I think that this movie was excellent. I am probably emotionally scarred for life but it was worth it.

Lars E. Jacobson wrote this movie and the box claims it is based on a true story. Which true story its based on or inspired by is not relevant. What is relevant is that Lars E. Jacobson understands what makes a movie horrifying. The plot to this movie is pretty straightforward. A woman, known only as Mom, convincingly portrayed by Colleen Porch, gives birth to her baby boy and begins a descent into madness and psychosis created by the all too common condition, post-partum depression. She begins to see things in drawings made by the children. She believes her husband, an over-the-road trucker who is gone frequently, is cheating on her. And of course, she begins to kill her children, one by one. Ok.. enough said about the plot because too much more would spoil this movie if you haven't seen it. And from what I can tell this film isn't trying to make any sort of social statement about post-partum depression. But, many of us know the story of Andrea Yates and mothers like her that simply snapped and killed all of their children in a post-partum depression induced psychosis. Thus this story is all too real and thus all too disturbing.

My wife and I cringed and turned out heads throughout this movie. But not because it is terribly gorey or bloody, we love gore and blood. We turned our heads, much as a young child covers his eyes when the monster comes up, to avoid the truly scary parts of this film -- the mother in her madness killing her children. My wife actually pulled our 3 year old son up on to her lap and held him as this woman brutally murdered these children. The film was simply brutal and horrifying. Rarely does a film kill young children, but this one does it, does it in a horrifying and realistic manner, and does it in front of other young children.

I was lucky enough to attend a private screening of this film (and am wondering why it didn't make it to the big screen in wide release) and was thoroughly creeped out. As far as indie horror films go, this one has a lot going for it: better-than-average acting, production, direction, and plot. There were some truly suspenseful scenes and several unexpected twists (though I don't know that "twist" is the appropriate word here). This is the type of movie that SHOULD have been playing at Horrorfest. Check it out for yourself!

Stays with you long after viewing...Baby Blues is a remarkable microduget horror film that does not rely on over the top gore or supernatural events to drive it's message home. What makes this movie stand out is the overwhelmingly disturbing subject matter. The direction, acting and cinematography are top-notch and you get a genuine depiction of rural life turned upside down (and inside out). Not for everyone, but highly recommended if you are looking for a great horror flick that is outside of the norm.
