Psychological horror starring Colleen Porch as a young mother living on a remote farm who undergoes a psychotic episode resulting from postnatal depression. As she becomes increasingly unstable, her oldest son Jimmy (Ridge Canipe) is forced to protect his three younger siblings from her depraved and murderous impulses.
With her husband gone and the stress of family life rising, Mom suffers a psychotic breakdown due to extreme depression that compels her to exterminate her four children, aged between 10 years and 3 months.
Now hope for the family’s survival rests on the shoulder of eldest son Jimmy, surrogate man of the house. Using his wits and intricate knowledge of the farm, Jimmy must try to protect his siblings while fending off the woman he has always known and loved as his mother. Thus it comes down to the most epic of battles, Mother vs. Son, in the most horrific scenario.

Cradle will Fall is a movie based on Andrea Yates, a lady who drowned her five children while suffering from postnatal depression and postpartum psychosis (a form of extreme psychosis that follows childbirth). Doctors warned her husband that she was suffering this condition but her husband ignored them stating that women who suffer postnatal depression/psychosis just need 'a swift kick in the pants'. The result of his ignorance is all of his children being drowned in a bathtub. She was originally sentanced to life but was retried in 2006 and accquited due to insanity (she was psychotic at the time) and thus sent to a mental health facility for treatment.
Now the actual movie is extremely good as it shows the gradual decline of the Mother's sanity and her decent into a mental breakdown, the camera work and soundtrack is so well done that you can start to feel like your being dragged down with her. Colleen Porch manages to portray her psychosis very authentically for example crying as she impales her daughter with a pitch fork and accusing her eldest son of trying to hurt her so much.
Despite the signs of the Mother's depression the Father, a long-distance trucker leaves her with a newborn and three other kids to cope on their farm in the middle of nowhere after only being home from his last job one day. At dinner she finally snaps and kills her baby and tries to kill her other children, constantly plagued by manic emotions. Her eldest son, Jimmy and sole survivor manages to keep her away until the Father gets home.Read more ›
She also suspects her somewhat emotionless husband of cheating. The father has to go away on a job and tells his oldest son that he will be the man of the house for a while and must look after his siblings,little does the father realise that the son will soon be fighting for all their lives.
So the mother finally snaps and starts killing her children,leaving the scared soon desperate and determined to save his sister.
The acting is passable to impressive,the mother is impressively played,very disturbing. It's an interesting story based on truth and highlights a very real threat of mental illness. This is very short at 1 hour 14 minutes,with the end credits being several minutes of that.
Some repulsed reviewers of this clearly missed the point,i don't see how it's offensive or sick,it just points out how someone can just flip sometimes and the whole thing ends in bloody carnage. It is disturbing,but it does it's job and does it well.
I would suggest this film to anyone who wants something out of the ordinary-something different-this D.V.D. offers that in a large dose! Go for it-You will NOT be disappointed!!
Postpartum psychosis is a condition by which women experience a sudden onset of psychotic symptoms after childbirth, that may include thought disturbances, delusions, hallucinations and/or disorganized speech or behavior. This film, based on the horrific crimes of Andrea Yates who killed all 5 of her children in a bathtub, is the worst case scenario for postpartum psychosis! Some of the acting and dialogue is questionable, but surely its to be expected with this type of film? The chase sequences are thrilling (utilizing various types of farm equipment to keep the mother at bay), and the murder scenes deeply unsettling with plenty of blood and gore not going to waste.
Overall, if you're not put off by the idea of a mother murdering her children, then this film is a non stop, nail-biting adrenaline rush. I recommend it :D
Yup. Mom goes psycho all over her kids. That is pretty much it as it becomes of game of hide and seek to the death.
Didn't really grab me. Oh yea. Inspired by actual events.
