The baby (spoilers)


The first time I saw this movie, when the boys came home and the baby was dead, the way it was all done, the color was dark, the baby was concealed, the mother quiet, etc., I thought since they'd had no food, the mother went crazy and ate part of the the baby. Is it just me or did anybody else have that initial thought?

Well, they did portray the mother as having gone nuts with the initial death of the family members.
But that was more of a "denial" nuts, than a "completely-berserk-do-anything-to-survive" nuts. In fact, she was more willing to die then to have to go through the pain, so resorting to that strange act would be pretty much out of character. But the dark ambiance preceding the scene where they bring the milk was pretty strong, and could have led us to expect any horrible revelations indeed.

Great movie, each scene was perfectly constructed.

I'd say it is just you that thinks like this.
