Grace Leaves 'em Fainting at Sundance

The word from Sundance this weekend is that the film Grace, produced by Hatchet-man Adam Green, actually caused two audience members to faint. The film stars Jordan Ladd as a mother-to-be who, after an accident leaves her unborn baby dead, decides to carry the baby to term and give birth to it stillborn. After being born, the baby miraculously comes back to life but with more of a taste for blood than Similac. Sounds like this could make for a nice second half of a double bill with Inside. At any rate, a film so disturbing it makes people faint sounds like William Castle style hyperbole but by accounts it actually happened. Grace has officially earned its place on the BGH radar. Here's the trailer:
