Francis Teri, USA, 1990, Jim Markovic, Horror

“Imagine if ALIEN took place at a shitty brothel that moonlights as a bootleg abortion house -- but with zero budget, tons of ambition, and dildos. After a desperate couple gets a routine procedure, the fetus is flushed into the sewer where it meets up with some toxic waste and transforms into a mutant beast complete with hooked talons for hands and a predatory umbilical cord. Stalking the brothel customers and employees, the mutant death baby envelops the house in an enormous placenta and slaughters the inhabitants one by one as they try to find a way out.

THE SUCKLING is low budget scuzz and manages to accomplish a lot with very little. A scuzzy, claustrophobic, stringy mess of repulsiveness; I love when shitty people get trapped in a house and have to figure out how to survive, especially when the house becomes a womb and the people become increasingly shittier!” (Ian West, Letterboxd)
