I just got this one on DVD in Oslo. We gave about 25$ for it... And let me just say that it was NOT worth even 5$ in my book. It was so awful,worst movie ever made. And on the DVD we could see trailers of It's Alive 2 and 3 and they looked even worse... Hehe, I can't even take this movie seriously. Man I hope I never have to see this one again... Man it was bad. How can someone rate this any higher than 1? Is it possible? I really don't get it... One thing is for sure I will not see the two others ever. I wouldn't even see them if someone payed me to see them. Don't think about seeing this awful movie... Now I don't really have anything more to say about this crap of an awful movie...

Is it really possible to like this crap?Reviewed byFreddy XVote: 1/10
"It's Alive" is one of those cult horror films that I had heard a lot ofgreat things about but didn't get around to seeing until just recently. Ihave to say that I was bored with it throughout most of the film, butstarted to catch on to its vibe as it got closer toward the end. I trulysupport what this movie has to say about the somewhat totalitarian world ofmedicine, and ended up liking "It's Alive" a lot more when I realized thatit wasn't just some dumb movie with no real point or scares at all. I stillhave to admit that the movie didn't scare me at all, but it generated somegood, healthy suspense, and the point is such a good one (and is so welldone) that I do have to hand this movie some major support. It was more sadthan anything else, but it wasn't too bad at all.
A hideous mutant baby is born and escapes from the hospital, now it's scared and killing people. They learn that its on its way home, to find protection from its parents.
A pretty decent low-budget exploitation horror film by writer/director Larry Cohan (Q-The winged Serpent), this film takes the abortion issue to another level. A simple plot that's absurdly fun and silly to watch-but it's the cleverness of the script, that never has a dull moment.
The make-up effects and the baby puppet was designed and operated by Rick Baker (An American werewolf in London, Men in black, Ed Wood), the design looks decent enough for a low-budget film and one of his first major film designs, but because of Cohen's great direction we see through the eyes of the baby (in double vision) or it's hidden in the shadows and only small snippets of it are shown. We don't see it fully until the end, giving it a much more creepy feel to the film.
It centers more on the sound effects than the visuals, so there is more of a presence with it's nerve wracking crying and snarling. That actually helps give the atmosphere a dark and bleak feel of depression.
The performances are top notch from Sharon Farrell as the unstable mother Lenore Davies, James Dixon as Lieutenant Perkins and John Ryan as Frank Davis the cold-hearted father who wants his baby killed, his portrayal really does ground the film and brings an emotional element that sucks you in.
One the greatest music composers Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, North by North West, Psycho, Taxi Driver, All that money cant buy) comes up with a superb score and a chilling main theme.
The cinematography is rather good towards to the feel of hysteria and tension, giving it a nauseating aura and good use of the baby's point of view. The film's pace is excellent and leads up to a fine climax.
It's no great feat of its genre, but it deserves merit. A very good film that's helped by it's excellent performances, script, direction and music score.
