Movie Info

Writer-director Larry Cohen followed his ragged but interesting horror hit It's Alive! with this sequel, which surpassed the original in both creativity and technical expertise. The story opens as another expectant couple, Eugene and Jody Scott (Frederic Forrest and Kathleen Lloyd), are paid a surprise visit by a stranger who turns out to be Frank Davies (John P. Ryan), the father of the original monster baby from the previous film. Davies warns the couple that their unborn child may be

plain boring

Proves poised in its balancing of humor, terror and tragedy.

The second and third parts of Larry Cohen's It's Alive trilogy are by turns silly and sublime.

Stylish little sequel to the freakish success, It's Alive.

Audience Reviews for It Lives Again

A tame and dull follow-up to the first film. The story progresses with yet more mutant babies being born across America. But more mutant babies didn't mean more carnage or a higher body count for this sequel. Things liven-up at the end but it comes far too late. Disappointing

A continuance of the monster baby story. This time there are more of them. Some good attack scenes, including at a kids' birthday party. Still has that exploitation feeling. They give us a few more glimpses of the creatures and expand their mythology.
