What is the name of that horror movie with the tree baby that eats people? I have not seen it in years and can’t find anything about it anywhere on the internet.

Could it be Greedy Guts (2000)? The original title of the film is Otesánek[1]. It’s a Czech film, sort of a comedic horror.

A woman learns she cannot have children. Her husband, in an effort to comfort her, takes a tree root and makes it into a child.

The woman is rather unhinged and pretends it’s real. So much so, the root comes to life and needs a great deal of fuel in order to keep growing. That fuel happens to be people.
