First, I have to thank Bobby, over at http://straighttohellhorrormoviereviews.blogspot.com/ for writing a review of his own, on this movie, otherwise I would not have even known about it. Bobby's review intrigued me enough to want to rent the movie for myself, and I was not disappointed.
The movie starts off with some leopards, that were captured in Africa, being transported to a circus, somewhere in France. Here we meet Yanka, who assists the animal trainer. We also discover that Yanka's husband is abusive towards her.
When a leopard is discovered with its belly burst open, and some mysterious slime dripping from its body, we follow a strange tentacle-like creature that slithers around, until it discovers Yanka, asleep in her bed. It quickly slithers up her bedpost and into Yanka, between her legs. Yanka then awakens, packs her belongings, and leaves her husband. About a month later, the husband tracks her down and decides to pay a visit. Here we learn that the creature within Yanka's womb can communicate with her. It tells her to kill her husband, that it needs blood to grow, so that it can be can be born [it has been waiting to be born, since the dawn of time] The creature tells Yanka that if she does what it says, it will not hurt her. . . From here on out, we basically follow Yanka, throughout the remainder of her pregnancy, luring men with her body [note: Emmanuelle's body is very nice - her face, not so much] and ultimately feeding them to her unborn child.
One thing to note is that this is a restored DVD which includes scenes that were originally omitted from the movie. The movie is dubbed in English, yet the deleted scenes are in French - for instance there is a scene where Yanka hitches a ride with a trucker. The trucker is telling Yanka the story of how he came to be a trucker - he is telling her this in French - when suddenly, in English, he says, "So, what's your story?" I just thought that was pretty humorous. :-)
I do not have a trailer for Baby Blood, but if you head over to http://www.excessif.com/video/index.php?flashvideo=lady_blood_1eres_images.flv you can watch a trailer for the upcoming sequel.
