    "Baby Ruby": Kit Harington's Dark Dive into Modern Parenting and Social Media

    From the valorous Jon Snow to an "ethical butcher" - Kit Harington is haunting the silver screen once again. This time, in "Baby Ruby," a hair-raising horror film that takes parenting to a whole new terrifying level.

    Parenthood or Nightmare? A Modern Horror Tale

    Harington and Noémie Merlant portray a couple whose world is turned upside down after welcoming a child into their influencer lifestyle. Billed as a "Rosemary's Baby for Instagram mommies," this tale of horror gets under your skin in the most unexpected ways.

    "What I love is that there are a lot of risks in this movie," Merlant shared with The Hollywood Reporter, highlighting the film's bold take on motherhood.

    The story, written and directed by Bess Wohl, leads us into a waking fever dream where everyone is a threat, and nothing is as it seems. As Merlant's character, Jo, fights to protect herself and her baby, she is confronted with her inner darkness and the ultimate human sacrifice: The one mothers make for their children.

    Kit Harington's Personal Connection to "Baby Ruby"

    Kit Harington's role brings his personal experience as a new father to the fore, resonating with the script's disorienting portrayal of parenting.

    "I felt very drawn to it for those reasons," Harington admitted. "I like a film that's not one genre, that's a mix of things, you can't really place it. I felt like this was one of those."

    With other stars like Jayne Atkinson and Meredith Hagner, and Magnet Releasing behind the distribution, "Baby Ruby" promises to leave audiences chilled to the bone.

    The film has been praised for its raw depiction of the lack of support for new mothers, and the way Wohl's direction captures the maternal veneer often perpetuated by social media. IndieWire describes it as a mystery filled with illusions based in truth, where "every fright is haunting and indelible."

    So brace yourself for "Baby Ruby," a horrifying take on modern motherhood and the unsettling silence surrounding the trials of raising a child. A cinematic must-see, now available in theaters and VOD.
