Manhattan Baby is a 1982 Italian horror film directed by Lucio Fulci, and starring Christopher Connelly and Carlo De Mejo. The film begins in Egypt, where Susie, the daughter of archaeologist George Hacker, is given a mysterious talisman by an old woman. Meanwhile, her father investigates a tomb, and is blinded by a blue light. George and Susie return to New York, where George gradually recovers his vision. Strange deaths begin to occur around the Hackers, seemingly caused by the amulet.
Manhattan Baby was shot in New York and Egypt in March and April 1982. It was originally planned to be one of Fulci's more expensive films, but its budget was cut in half during production. After the film's release, both Fulci and screenwriter Dardano Sacchetti dismissed it. Fulci would not work with producer Fabrizio De Angelis again. The film received negative reviews from Corriere della Sera and La Stampa. From contemporary reviews, Kim Newman (Monthly Film Bulletin) described Manhattan Baby as Fulci's "smallest, most personal genre film."
