HBO The Baby

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

Who doesn’t love a baby? Well not everyone apparently. The new HBO series The Baby is a show centered around the horrors created by a (cursed/demon/monster/devil/some kind of evil) baby. To be honest we don’t know which just yet. Then it adds in entertaining and brilliantly funny blunt examinations of motherhood. There has only been one episode, and I am looking forward to where this will lead.

The first episode of the new 8-episode run begins with a woman jumping off a seaside cliff. Then followed by a baby who crawls off the same cliff. But the baby is saved by 38-year-old Natasha. Then the death and destruction begin.

The official synopsis for The Baby goes like this: When 38-year-old Natasha is unexpectedly landed with a baby, her life of doing what she wants, when she wants, dramatically implodes. Controlling, manipulative, and with violent powers, the baby twists Natasha’s life into a horror show. Where does it come from? What does it want? And what lengths will Natasha have to go to in order to get her life back? She doesn’t want a baby. The baby wants her.

While we have very few answers in the first episode, I think that this series looks to turn to witches or cults in later episodes. The trailer hints at what you can expect from the rest of the season. I wonder what the terrible twos will be like with this kid.
