Theo of our spinoff show Twin Cinema (and recurring guest) joins us once again this week, as we grab our binkies and talk about the cult 1973 horror film The Baby! Following the efforts of a lonely social worker (Anjanette Comer) to wrest control of an infantilized adult (David Manzies) from his mother (Ruth Roman, looking every bit like late-period Joan Crawford) and his two groovy femme fatale sisters (Marianna Hill, Suzanne Zemor), The Baby is one of the craziest films we’ve seen in awhile. Check out our episode, along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!
THIS EPISODE’S DRINK:
DRINKING RULES FOR THE BABY:
- Any time you see big frocks, bigger hair and other egregious 70s fashion choices
- Every time you see a classic 70s zoom
- Whenever Baby’s red teddy bear is prominently shown
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:

Join us next week as we puff the magic dragon with Method Man and Redman, in their corpse-smoking stoner college comedy How High!
