Few fears in the history of the human condition, legitimate or irrational, amount to those tied to the overwhelming experience of being pregnant.
The uniquely female undertaking of carrying of a soon-to-be-new-life within oneself conjures all kinds of dread about the radical transformation of one’s own life - not to mention, one’s own body - that comes along with it. Diabolique charts the development of genre cinema and literature’s most provocative depictions of pregnancy, starting with classics like Rosemary’s Baby and It’s Alive, before moving to contemporary knocked-up knockouts such as Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s Inside.
