Baby Selwyn is a minor antagonist in the 1992 New Zealand horror-comedy film Braindead.
Two zombies, Father McGruder and Nurse McTavish, copulate while trapped in Lionel's basement, producing a mischievous zombified baby overnight.
Baby Selwyn resembles a human infant with grotesque proportions and diseased skin. The right side of his face is covered in tumorous scabs that have rendered the eye on that side closed, and the left eye has a yellow sclera.
