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.

Grace is about Madeline, a desperate mother wanting to have a baby.....apparently alive or dead.
Jennifer Medlock
This end is also too telling: as this also shows that one can guess each plot turn the movie will take in more non-thrilling and scare-lacking ways.
Nick S
It's not actually a horror film- just has a heavy emphasis on being unusually disturbing, quiet, and very very different.

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.

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.

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.

When I say this movie is a bloodbath, I don't mean that it's a typical slasher film. I mean there is literally a lot of blood in it. Blood oozes, spills, pools. However, it's all to good purpose. It all has a point. But if such a sanguine sight makes you squeamish, this is not the film for you.

The jacket of this DVD also might be a little misleading in that it suggests another "bad seed" sort of baby - another psychopathic monster. But that isn't it either. This movie is more inventive than that. The infant Grace poses a different sort of problem for anyone taking care of her. Grace is a unique special needs child.

The acting here is excellent, and the premise challenges the viewer to consider, "What would I do?"
