Hell Baby (2013)

Director: Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon

Jack and Vanessa buy a fixer' up house in the Garden District in New Orleans. She is expecting twins any day now. They are the white couples that have moved into a mostly black neighbor. Their new house has a history of having tons of murders happening there. Strange events start to happen in their new home. Vanessa becomes possessed by a demon, and she starts to take it out on her husband. In the middle of all of this, their neighbor across the street, F'resnel, just comes into their house whenever he wants to. Vanessa's sister comes over to smudge the house. Two priest from Italy are in town looking for this evil.

I kind of made this movie sound better than it really is. This is not a good movie, not even in the sense of being a good bad movie. Those are my favorite, but this is not one of them at all. This movie is loosely a parody of the It's Alive movie. That was not even that great of a movie, but I guess they thought that they could make it funny. They were wrong.

They tried way too hard to make this movie funny to the point of the movie just came off lame. The puking scene was the worst part of the movie. It was so unnecessary, and the scene was way too long. The whole movie was the same joke over and over again. The bad part is that Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon were the writers and directors of this movie. They are normally really funny and talented, but their parts that they wrote for themselves were kind of stupid. I hated that. I was so excited to see them in the movie. The rest of the cast were in almost every Comedy Central show in the 90's.

I would not waste the time in watching this movie. It is one that needs to be skipped, unless you are really desperate to watch something new and there is nothing else on, at all. I watched it so you don't have to.
