Okay, I saw this movie ages ago, and I only remember bits and pieces of it. The only two characters I remember are the main character: a woman with medium-length, black hair, who looks a bit like Bruce McCulloch from The Kids in the Hall; and a weird old man, who, at the beginning of the movie, asks her if she wanted to hear the story of Electromagnetic Induction.
Like I said, I only remember bits and pieces... There was a potato thing in her closet that she was nurturing, she gave birth to one or more things (deformed babies?), there was a bathtub... menstrual blood...
The color scheme was pretty dark, with high color saturation. It looked to have been made around the late 80s to early 90s.
I don't think the movie had much of a point, other than to creep out the viewer.

This might be the original film "Xtro": it sounds very much like it, anyway.

No, I can safely say that it's not Xtro. Maybe it could be one of the sequels.

Could it be THE BROOD?  That certainly has mutant children and the same sort of 70's psychobabble you mentioned.

It's not what you say, it's how you say it.

Definitely could be THE BROOD.  It matches the description quite well.

I'm going to agree about "The Brood" - that is a good lead.  Now that Garrett is here and healthy, I think I'm finally going to get to work on a review for that one.  I have been putting it off.

I'm not entirely sold that its The Brood. The only major women parts had long red hair, and short blond hair. The mutiple births make sense, no bathtub, and mentral blood does sound like it could fit, but I'm not sure. My movie club just watched that less than a month ago, so it's pretty fresh in my mind. I don't recall anything about Electromagnetic Induction. There was definately a point to The Brood beyond creeping you out (Croney's first forray into autobiographical scriptwriting for one). Could be, but maybe we should search for potato nurturing before we peg down The Brood. By the by, this is my favorite Cronenberg movie.

Nope, not The Brood or Xtro.  Thanks for the input, though. Any other guesses?

Maybe a film from the It's Alive series.
