The Baby (1973)
Baby lives with his insane mother and his two very hot sisters who seem to get their rocks off with a bit of incest from time to time with baby brother. However things are going to get even weirder when a new social worker starts coming around and takes a special interest in Baby.
The Baby is disturbing in general just in its subject matter but we are also treated to some scenes of perversion and violence. In one of the craziest moments a babysitter is caught with "Her tit in Baby's mouth". This doesn't go over so well with Baby's mother and sisters and we have some excessive violence complete with blunt objects to achy-breaky skulls and gratuitous bitch-slapping. We also get some axe wielding, hatchet-fu and some kitchen knife violence and it all makes for a pretty wacky watch.
In my humble opinion the only thing that could have made The Baby better would have been a touch more of the red stuff and some very gratuitous nudity. Fans of this movie should also check out Bab Boy Bubby which is similiar in context or Death Game (1977) which holds a very similar feel in pace and suspense.
