Our Score
Having toyed with the idea of calling this film Cradle to Grave, Cradle to Rob and The Baby, it's hard to know why this less than inspiring title was chosen, especially as it had already been used for a feature-length TV courtroom drama in 1990. Be that as it may, this is a more than adequate thriller starring Corbin Bernsen - still familiar to most viewers as one of the stars of LA Law - and Amanda Pays as a couple (the pair are married in real-life) whose relationship is stretched to breaking point when their baby vanishes. Post-natal depression has taken its toll, but do those blood stains really mean Pays committed murder? The tension is admirably sustained by director Bill Corcoran.

Summary

A couple are torn apart by the sudden disappearance of their newborn son - a mystery which leads to murder accusations when a bloodstained baby's blanket is found in the back of the wife's car. Thriller, starring real-life husband and wife Corbin Bernsen and Amanda Pays alongside Neve Campbell.
