First off Im always on the look out for the bizarre, disturbing and most controversial films I can find. I dont think I can top this one. And oddly enough it stars the late Robert Loggia! Well kinda. He is advertised in the film but it all footage from another film.
The film is called Cries of the Unborn which is a semi sequel to The Life Zone. The film makes zero sense in contrast to the first film and leaves many errors in the film as it stands. The Film has a 1.2 on IMDB as of now. Anything above a 1 is too high. So what makes this film so messed up? The film is about a group of people who kidnapped a young woman who was going to have an abortion. Now on trail the group has admitted their crime. Why this is a trial after the confession I do not know. The jury on the trial talks the case out and watches footage from the kidnapping (made up of footage from The Life Zone). Also they mentally toured her and inspected her area. and debate if the kidnappers should be set free. Here is where it gets twisted. Regardless on your feelings on abortion this film makes a deliberate statement and message that kidnapping a person is alright in this circumstance. They also try to justify what they did. Again they abducted a woman for 7 months and mentally tortured her. And this film actually takes the side of the abductors! Cries of the Unborn: The film that says kidnapping is perfectly fine in certain circumstances.
This is one the craziest most damaging films imaginable. Im ranking this as the second worst film I have ever seen.
Biggest bummer about this one may be the fact that somehow Harry Anderson (Night Court) got roped into starring in this, and it's the last film he did before his death.
I seen that one. Its on my worst 100 as well. Its was such a propaganda film that feels no shame. The odd thing is that the good guys in the film seem more like the villains. And Harry Anderson was supposed to be the antagonist and he was the most likable one in the film.
