My quick ratin 5,6/10. I would say that now a movie such as this would get either a ton of backlash, or would just get swept aside completely. No in between when you tell a story of a baby that comes out of the womb and immediately kills people. Guess that was a spoiler. Anyway, it was the early 70s and it sure looks like it. There really isn't any underlying excitment to this one. A very original idea for the time, and still quite disturbing for moms to this day I would assume. Definitely a bit creepy, but as far as horror goes this movie stays a bit on the tame side.
