Nasty Baby trailer

At first, Nasty Baby looks like a pretty typical Sundance indie. Kristen Wiig stars as a woman trying to get pregnant with the help of her best friends, gay couple Freddy (Sebastián Silva) and Mo (Tunde Adebimpe) in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. There’s some raunchy banter, some interpersonal tension, a self-consciously quirky cast, and the usual themes of friendship, family, and growing up.

But Silva, who also directed, isn’t really interested in being typical. He likes the dark and unexpected, as he’s shown in films like The MaidCrystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus, and Magic Magic, and now in the first Nasty Baby trailer. By the end, Nasty Baby starts to feel like a horror film, even if it’s not exactly clear what we’re supposed to be afraid of. Watch the Nasty Baby trailer after the jump.  Read More »
