When Conrad Harrison impulse-buys a big old house in Wisconsin, his wife Jo doesn't share his enthusiasm, reluctant at the idea of leaving their LA life - so Conrad is left to set up their new home as she ties up loose ends at work. But Conrad's new purchase is not all that it seems. Soon Conrad is hearing the ghostly wailing of a baby in the night, seeing blood on the floor and being haunted by a woman who looks exactly like Jo. With his wife away, Conrad becomes obsessed by the pregnant girl next door, Nadia, who claims to be a victim of the evil in the house. The crying leads him to a bricked-up body, and the mystery of the Birthing House unravels, pulling in Jo, Nadia and leading Conrad to a nightmarish conclusion...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst A man and his disinterested wife move to a small town to start over after he has discovered her affair. They pick a house that was once a home for expectant mothers. But when the wife leaves to try a new career, the husband is given a photo album of the past occupants only to find his wife's face in one of the century old pictures. How this happens is explained by a series of confusing conversations that may or may not happen in his head, but definitely happen in the readers head. What starts out as a wonderful premise turns into a cheap horror film script with lots of sex and crummy scares. What a true talent could have done with this, I can only imagine!
