Proudly presented in pointless 3D
Movies like "Baby Blues" seriously make me angry. Who makes this kind of garbage and why, and – most importantly – what were the good people of the Brussels International Festival of Fantastic Films thinking to schedule this piece of crap on a Saturday evening at 11 pm?!? This film is absolutely nothing at all! A horror flick without frights, a thriller without thrills and a family drama without emotion. The festival wrongfully advertises "Baby Blues" as a taut thriller in which Chucky's Chinese cousin wreaks havoc in Hong Kong. Yeah, right. This is a nonsensical and totally boring story about a horrible young couple (he composes pop music, she writes a blog for girls) that moves into a new house and finds an ugly left behind doll. Obviously the doll homes some sort of malignant spirit, but it must be the most boring one ever. The doll inspires the husband to write twisted songs (oh, so scary!) and occasionally points out its finger in the audience's direction. When the wife loses one of her twin babies during the delivery, she sinks into a postnatal depression and sees the doll as her stillborn baby. The plot is dumb, the characters are irritating and nothing makes any sense. Also, this is yet another lousy 3D flick where the 3D effects haven't got any added value whatsoever! The 3D was just a stupid excuse to make us purchase special glasses and spend extra money, bah! Don't waste any time or money on this rubbish, just as I won't waste anymore words on it.
