While on a research expedition in Central Africa, paleontologist Dr. Susan Matthews-Loomis and her husband George Loomis stumble upon traces of a legendary folk monster that possesses characteristics attributable to sauropods. The pair is propelled by their insatiable curiosity to dig deeper, and what starts out as lore quickly becomes reality as they travel deeper into the jungle—eventually crossing paths with a brontosaurus family. Susan and George aren’t the only ones to discover the creatures though, and soon they are in a race against time to save Baby and its family from the local military and the nefarious Dr. Eric Kiviat, who want to exploit the creatures for fame and fortune. The film stars Sean Young (Blade Runner, Dune) and William Katt (Carrie, The Greatest American Hero) with an acting appearance by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. On the surface, it is a remarkably indulgent cult adventure-fantasy film-—Baby has a critics’ aggregate score of 14% on Rotten Tomatoes— but it is also an amusing link in the visual-effects evolution of on-screen dinosaur depictions.
