A psychological thriller with supernatural overtones, The Birthing House is a tale of one man’s descent into madness, where fantasy and nightmare share the same bed. In this brilliantly crafted ghost story, a young couple, Conrad and Joanna Harrison, attempt to save their marriage by starting anew in a rural turn-of-the-century former birthing house. One day, when Jo is away at work, the former owner bequeaths a photo album that “belongs to the house.” Thumbing through the antique photos of miserable midwives and pregnant girls in their nineteenth-century dresses, Conrad is chilled to the bone when he sees his own wife staring back at him with rage. The Birthing House is a story of possession, sexual obsession, and ultimately murder, as a centuries-old crime is reenacted in the present with devastating consequences. An Audie Award Finalist.

What is this again?? It should be classsified as Erotica/Horror. This is a porn show in a haunted house. It has potential as a good story but the writer just could not get it together. I think that perhaps he could not think of anything to write about so he filled the pages with porn most of the time. If this ever is a movie, Wow! let the kids be in their rooms with the door secured. I just could not figure it out most of the time. Too much going and coming, characters that you could not get to know, going into the past and then into the future, I was sooo lost??????? Sorry, but really read the reviews before you rent this one.
