The utterly forgettable Rachel Hendrix stars in October Baby, playing a young woman with health problems who finds out that she’s the survivor of a failed abortion. There’s melodrama aplenty in this heavy-handed and preachy movie that seems to have been funded by a bunch of people who wanted to push their religious/political views on an unsuspecting public. The fact that the film is being given any sort of a release is astounding. The acting, specifically by Hendrix and John “Bo Duke” Schneider as her father, is painfully bad. The film has a cheap look; it’s like a Lifetime movie got its budget cut in half. One curious thing of note: There seems to be a montage every 10 to 15 minutes.
