    The message and social issue are relevant, but most of October Baby comes across as heavy handed and poorly written melodrama. A few scenes that touch on the issue and are very powerful but most scenes are heavy handed and poorly written. Too bad a much better film on the issue would have been great for a time like today.

    Its anti-abortion stance aside, October Baby looks and feels like a Lifetime movie waiting not to happen.

    October Baby earns points for the originality of its protagonist but it has no chance of preaching to anyone but the choir.

    That whole aspect of October Baby creeped me out a lot more than the blood-curdling failed-abortion story did, honestly. I've seen a lot of movies where crazy and impossible things happen, and you just have to roll with them. Real life is much more frightening.
