Lieutenant Perkins comes to the hospital to investigate the murder and the press divulges the identity of the parents. Frank discovers a dark secret about Lenore and the baby.
Part of my Halloween Horror Marathon
Not a very scary movie, but kinda fun. It's kinda slow but it's still creepy. The baby looks creepy as hell. Worth a watch.
Larry Cohens monsterbabymovie is a real curio. Not really successful as a horror movie but the scenes with a excellent John P Ryan trying to cope with his mutant offspring on a killing spree makes the whole movie work a lot better than it should.
The Davies second child is a mutated bloodthirsty killer that escapes the maternity ward at birth and goes on a murderous rampage across the city. With no explanation for the mutation, the Davies are left holding a baby of press harassment and national hysteria as the body count rises and the police set out to hunt down the abomination.
Despite some dodgy creature design, this is well made monster movie which throws out lots of ideas about parental rights, the environment and the use of fertility drugs which would have been seen as provocative at the time although its happy to let them stew under the creepy Bernard Herrmann score and some solid performances.
a real class act killer mutant baby movie.
Halloween Times: Film #30
The baby in It's Alive is what I imagine Liv Tyler looked like as a child. Have you ever been to Steven Tyler's House? No baby photos anywhere...
Larry Cohen has five kids. I wonder what they think of this movie.
"Did John P. Ryan deserve an Oscar for this role?" I asked myself as I watched his calm, tough-as-nails exterior give way to a few sparkling, perfectly-timed tears. A hero's journey, truly.
Premalo trashy horrora, previše obiteljske drame.
A cult classic, no more.
Boring and low-budgety it really is nothing special.
I really want to make fun of "It's Alive" for a lot of reasons but I can't tell if there is real social commentary being attempted or if it's just accidental. Was the mutant baby caused by birth control? One of the characters made a comment about pollution hinting that that may be the cause of deformities? Whatever the message was it wasn't exactly well executed. "It's Alive" had a definite TV-movie-of-the-week vibe to it. I thought the editing was sloppy and at times it was jarring. The score was provided by Bernard Herrmann. I really love Herrmann's music but in this movie it just doesn't work. First there was too much music. Second there were smaller moments when Herrmann's…
This movie was OK, much prefer the remake. But I have never really been into films before the 80s part from Nightmare On Elm Street, Rosemarys Baby, Halloween, Friday The 13th. But I did find the alien baby to be "scarier" and the special effects were very good.
Basura disfrutable, es como comida chatarra cinematografía, sabes que es mala, que el final no será bueno, que no te dejará nada pero como se difruta jejej
Very much 'of its time'. The demon looks like a Labrador pup in makeup! Sharon Farrell shines.
Fun movie about a killer newborn. That says it all, really.
I found this movie very very very boring. It looks fine and has a nice score, mostly acted very well, but it just repeats itself over and over, and takes forever to finally end.
They really hide the baby a lot and you just see brief glimpses of it, so it's hard to tell what it looked like overall, but it did look freaky in what we see.
But most of the gore or violence is sadly implied, so it only helps to make it more of a chore to watch.
