The Midwife is a 2020 British horror film about a desperate young woman trying to make sense of the supernatural occurrences in her home. Things take a turn when the midwife pays a visit…

Directed by visual effects coordinator Marta Baidek – making her feature directorial debut – the Acid Rainbow Pictures production stars Lara Goodison, Jeremy Joyce, Ellie Morris, Adeline Waby, Christos Lawton, Tiffany Ceri and William McGeough.

Plot:
Lissie (Lara Goodison) is living her best life with her loving husband Charlie (Jeremy Joyce) – they have a beautiful home and a new baby on the way.

However, when a sudden miscarriage sets off a series of supernatural occurrences, Lissie struggles to make sense of the chaos turning her happy home into a house of horrors.

Is she losing her mind? Can she still trust her husband? Is the spirit of baby Michael stalking the attic? Deliverance has a due date when the midwife makes a house call…

Reviews:
“Given how many low budget films are either completely derivative or (even worse) totally incoherent, I have to give props to Ryan Gage; he’s come up with an interesting story and structured it in an interesting way, which is the foundation of a good film. Not only that but the actors and production do it justice. Nice work all round.” Horrified
