THE AV REVIEW
A couple and their newborn arrive at their new home, a wonderful old house that has been renovated to meet their every need. However, something is living in the babys room, something whose presence they can feel each night right there beside their child. It is watching and waiting.
In recent years Spain has become one of the bigger players on the horror market, something that is really cool because first off the films oftentimes seem to know what they’re doing and secondly, it simply provides some variation. Like many of you reading this, I have this problem that I’ve been watching way too much horror for too many years which makes a lot of films seem predicatable, but what’s even worse, it’s almost impossible getting really scared anymore. So when this little Spanish gem, The Baby’s Room, came along I was pleasantly surprised because this one truly has some quality scares to offer.
The opening paragraph comes from “The Baby’s Room”. It’s just one of six films that you can find on this release. It’s an amazing collection of titles collected together for the first time in Region 1. Lions Gate is really kicking ass with their genre releases from other countries. Throw this disc on and check out something new.
