Product Description

Eight months pregnant, Madeline Matheson deflects her demanding mother-in-law's insistent pressure for standard hospital treatment, instead opting for the peaceful companionship of a trusted midwife. Though reluctantly compliant, her husband remains supportive of her choices until a sudden tragic accident leaves her unborn baby lifeless inside of her. Madeline remains determined to carry the stillborn baby to term, where she miraculously wills the delivered corpse into life. But it is not too long before the increasingly isolated mother realizes that something is not right with baby Grace, and she must make horrible sacrifices to keep her living.

3.0 out of 5 stars More melodrama than horror October 13, 2009
By Robert
Format:DVD
I'm a bit torn on how to review "Grace." As a drama, it does have fairly decent suspense and a slow burn kind of pacing. If you have a short attention span or enjoy gore, this will not be a worthwhile experience. As far as horror goes, it falls short of being frightening, though I do not think that was the plan. The disappointment in the reviews seem to come from expectations rather than the actual movie. At no point was I bored. In fact, it was a pleasant diversion to become immersed in the characters and the mother's slow decent into brutality in order to save her child.

"Grace" is generally presented as a believable story in its context, and is well acted for the most part. A mother desperate for a baby, and destined for a stillborn child, miraculously has the child survive, only to find eventually that blood is the only thing that keeps it alive. The plot is fairly creative and there is tension throughout the movie. Still, if Lifetime had a horror network, this would be its centerpiece.

"Grace" is certainly worth a watch if you adjust your expectations to include suspense rather than horror, and subtle terrors rather than blood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspensful, disgusting, well packed Blu August 25, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I do not get to the horror/suspense BDs that often (Last House on the Left & Midnight Meat Train my last couple) but with the amount of material on this I had to give it a sit down. Overall, I was impressed with everything they had to offer on this, and even if you find yourself in that group of people questioning the writing, the Blu has plenty to satiate even the discerning viewer.

The story follows a mom and her stillborn/reanimated baby as they discover what it will take for them to survive. And without delving into being an actual horror/zombie baby film, they manage to show a low key, melodramatic (and as real as possible) take on this family's tale. There is little back story, and nothing given as to how this might have happened or why certain characters are involved to the level they are, so if vague plot lines bother you, skip it. Most of the complaints out there follow the lack of what I described, but in the end, and as sick as the last scene is, this still left with me the feel of seeing a competent and twisted film. Now the good stuff.

The picture quality looks decent, but the grain shows through more often than not with the volume of indoor night shots. The sound is a mixed bag depending on which you select. There is a choice of 5.1 DD or PCM Uncompressed. I chose the latter after testing 12 different scenes containing the fly buzzing sounds and outright channel saturation (the airbag deployment for instance), and without hesitation, I say watch this in the PCM - louder, better and more articulate. The special features rock and include:

* Grace at Sundance - 13 minutes. Includes some behind the scenes of what it is like to get into the famed festival, and everything one might encounter in getting your film accepted/marketed while there.

2.0 out of 5 stars My Review as on Unrated Magazine.com October 3, 2009
By Nick S
Format:DVD
Babies are considered the hope for the future. However, in the realm of horror movie filmmaking, ever since the 1968 masterpiece Rosemary's Baby they are used instead either as a source of fear and even sometimes as an omen of impending apocalypse. While Grace is a film that fits into the tiny maternal-fright genre, it is sadly more of an inferior, schlock fest than the glowing Sundance advance reviews would have you believe. What a pity.

The plot of Grace concerns a mother's relationship with her baby of the title. Grace is the kind of baby that needs special food. No, one does not mean organic. It is rather that of the red kind.

While Rosemary's Baby had its psychological angle to freak out its audience, and It's Alive, though not great by any means, had a fun and campy sense to its material, Grace seems to want to play it completely straight in both tone and plot structure, a bit like The Brood. Problem is, despite this exact plot never being quite done before, the film still feels pretty ordinary.

Grace just never rises above its rote mechanics. It feels at if it tries to coast on its disturbing themes, but despite an eerie music score, the film barely emotes. It chooses to behave in a way any horror genre connoisseur thinks it will, but this also leaves it without depth or originality, and Grace is hardly even fun or thrilling. It may try to go with a slow-buildup, but things do not exactly simmer interestingly, and any real themes on the subject of motherhood and nursing etc. seem petite. Furthermore, the splatter feels routine and much too easy.

Structure wise Grace is also comparable to Lucky McKee's film, May, in terms of slow-crawl buildup to a blood-spilling finish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the chiller I keep reading about... October 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I pick up a DVD, it isn't about extras. I hate it when it becomes about that, too, and I think I'm venting a little because a few high-profile reviews outside of Amazon were built on this heading. I don't know when things got this way and started building on the extra bus but I do know this: If I buy something like a movie it is about a movie I want to watch and my hopes that depend on the genre expectation. With this flick, I have to say that I was not expecting a lot because it is a movie with a little bottle on it and a description that made me think it was either a B-movie that could make me laugh or a surprise that could make me happy. a lot of early reviews made me think it was going to be the surprise part, too, because they had quite a few things to say on the good side of the movie. Then i watched the thing, saw it was jammed with extras, and wondered if that was why it scored so highly. I know it wasn't the movie - it was funny here and cheap there, and it was likeable if you want that - because I thought it would be better.

Well, maybe I didn't think it would be better but I did have some hopes.

There are a lot of reviews that tear the movie down into little slices, so you can pan for those if you need that. I just want to say that, given my choices of movies, this was not high on my list of memories. I did like it: I had time to burn, laughed a few times, and had some friends that said, "that was descent." Read about the movie and imagine why it could be that word, descent, and you probably hit the nail on the head. If you need a baby horror, look up some Japanese thrillers or some Korean horror and you can find yourself going past campy and getting into horrifically weird. Sadly, this plotline keeps on keeping on and, well, it needs a booster shot.

Time killer, no thriller - I really wanted to want this.
