Editorial Reviews

Looking for advice about an unexpected pregnancy, an innocent teenage couple wind up in a New York brothel. They accidentally set off a bizarre series of events that they ll never forget... if they live to tell about it. Everyone in the brothel is in the wrong place at the wrong time, especially when THE SUCKLING becomes an unwanted customer. The unconsenting girl is drugged, her baby aborted and the fetus is flushed down the toilet. The baby, exposed to toxic waste, regenerates and transforms into a very vengeful mutant. Using its umbilical cord as a deadly tentacle and its razor-sharp arms as claw-like weapons, the mutant begins to wreak absolute chaos. It transforms the house into a womb-like cocoon, surrounded by an airtight mucus membrane, from which there is no escape. The teenagers are frantically scrambling for any escape while the occupants of the brothel argue and turn on each other. With each passing hour, the minds and actions of all involved become increasingly panicked, bizarre and desperate. THE SUCKLING has been compared to ALIEN for its claustrophobic intensity and DIE HARD for its non-stop action and heightened drama. The conclusion of THE SUCKLING proves in a way never-before-seen that the special bond that exists between mother and her child transcends everything in its path.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the best worst movies ever March 8, 2007
Format:DVD
The Suckling is truly amazing if you like watching REALLY bad cinema. It boggles the mind at every twist and turn of the worst plot ever devised. I would say that the direction (?!) reminds one of the legendary Ed Wood, but the acting in The Suckling is beyond description. It has to be seen to be believed...

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Sucks More than THE SUCKLING August 7, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To any fan of outré cinema, the description on the back of the DVD case is simply mouthwatering. Back-alley abortion, toxic waste, an ambulatory mutant fetus, a group of people trapped in a house of ill repute--all the earmarks of a fun, campy, over-the-top horror movie. If nothing else, it's probably one of those so-bad-it's-good flicks in the Ed Wood vein, right? WRONG! Wrong, at least, if the film in question is 1990's THE SUCKLING (released as SEWAGE BABY in the UK). Although released on DVD by the well-regarded Elite Entertainment--which has distributed some "lost" gems in the past such as the Alan Ormsby-scripted POPCORN (1991), Tobe Hooper's EATEN ALIVE (1977), and the highly controversial I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (1978), among others--THE SUCKLING is way beneath the company's usual offerings.

Many popular and successful low-budget and indie films rise above their meager foundations by exploiting a well-written script, a talented group of actors, or skilled crew members and technicians. Or clever filmmakers can even use humor and copious T&A to disguise weak material, talentless actors, or an inexperienced crew. Unfortunately for the viewer, it seems the makers of THE SUCKLING not only lacked quality material and personnel, they were also not clever enough to camouflage their shortcomings. Instead, their film reads like a school project slapped together by students who hadn't yet decided if they were going to actually major in filmmaking or not.

The overall look of THE SUCKLING is more frightening than the eponymous infant itself.
