Last month, Vudu had a bunch of “Halloween” themed movies that you could watch FREE with ads. Of course you could find the classics on there, such as:

  • BeetleJuice
  • GhostBusters
  • Scary Movie
  • And more

My husband watched quite a few of these movies. He started one, Hell Baby, and some how decided in the first nine minutes that I would really like this movie, so he paused it and asked me to watch it with him. We finally got around to watching it November first; better late than never, I suppose.

So let me give you the run down.. Hell Baby stars Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan-Michael Key, and a select few others, and was directed by Robert Grant and Thomas Lennon. It was released in 2013 with an R rating and considered to be a Comedy-Horror film.

Corddry and Bibb play as a married couple, expecting twins, who move to this home in Louisiana fondly known as the Blood House. Here crazy and unexpected things happen and eventually they give birth to a demonic baby from Hell, hence the title.

Hell Baby was vulgar, twisted and somewhat gory, but doesn’t actually try to be scary. It’s not necessarily a spoof, but there are some pretty blatant nods to other horror films.

I was expecting a low budget, maybe a C rate, film.. definitely did not disappoint there. I honestly didn’t find the movie funny, it’s a bit of a shame for the horror/comedy genre.

The movie is mostly Key showing up randomly, boxes stacking themselves, a naked older woman, and sexual innuendos. This demon baby is born in the last ten or so minutes of the movie where he kills about four people and then is electrocuted.

And lets not forget the awful CGI of this devil spawn. Oh, my.

Why did the couple move out this way and pay over $300,000 for this crap house?  Who is this old lady and how is she still alive? How come it took so long for the husband to notice his wife was possessed? What about the first baby? And what in the hell happened to the demon that was possessing the wife after the demon baby was born?

This movie left so many unanswered questions, and honestly I don’t want the sequel.

Since I couldn’t rate it any lower, I rated the movie one star. 90 minutes of my life that I can’t get back.

Please, if you must watch this movie, save your money and find it for free.
