Rest In Peace Ted Post director of one of my favorite weird films - THE BABY

The sad news as repoted on TWITCH

 

Ted Post, who directed Clint Eastwood Westerns, the weird cult classic The Baby, and the sequels Magnum Force and Beneath the Planet of the Apes, has died. He was 95...

 

Here are my thoughts about THE BABY;

Ho-lee shit. What a movie. You keep thinking it can’t get more insane but it does. The best part is that the cast all play it utterly straight as though this is the world’s most demented LIFETIME movie. No matter how crazy the story and situations get they keep it all strangely believable. Nothing is explained, everything just is, it is though this film occupies its own universe a kind of Suburban Gothic. I must admit I also find extremely hot in this movie, your milage varies of course. Can this really be considered a horror movie? I can’t say for sure, but what I can say is do not reveal the twist ending!

And here is my riffing on the film;
