LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The art and philosophy behind horror cinema is often not acknowledged or even talked about,  even though the genre has the most visceral effect on their audiences and begs to be analyzed. This is especially true of movies like 'Rosemary's Baby' or 'The Babadook' that look at motherhood through the lens of horror. 


Bess Wohl, an American playwright, screenwriter, and actress whose plays include 'Grand Horizons' and 'Small Mouth Sounds,' has written and directed the upcoming thriller movie 'Baby Ruby' set around the idea of postpartum depression. The movie stars Kit Harington and Noémie Merlant playing struggling parents, who are having their first baby. 'Baby Ruby' had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last year on September 9, 2022. Shortly after, Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing acquired US distribution rights to the film and now, it is lined up to be released this year.

Cinema has gone through a period of rebirth and has begun choosing themes that have a social impact on the audience. While everyone talks about the sheer joy of motherhood, Bess Wohl thought of taking a different route by showcasing the other side of the coin — the difficulties that new mothers go through, but with a thrilling twist to it. 


The film takes you through the journey of excited new parents and how they confront the newness that comes with a baby, which turns out to be more than they bargained for.
