Movie Info

The fate of the happy new family takes a gruesome turn when animals and people end up brutally dead - all with a strange connection to their newborn.

Bijou Phillips... lacks the presence let alone the gravitas to carry off the tragedy of having created her own monster, and so the film's examination of maternity and madness falls short

Audience Reviews for It's Alive


The significance of ths film is that we are now at a time for horror cinema specifically the mid to late 2000's, that cult films from the 1970's and 80's are being remade to cash in on the original film's sucesses. The original It's Alive wasn't a huge success anyway so it seemed rather unusual to remake it but the film is not as terrible as everyone says. The film does have a very inconsistent visual style and I will admit that it is quite ugly and the direction is sometimes flimsy. However, it does have a clear moral message from the side of it that's a character drama like the first one and it has a few decently built up moments. It's nothing remarkable and very cliche'd but unlike other remakes the acting is good sometimes and it's never entirely boring. It's an incomprehensibly cheesy B movie that's fine but never adds up to something good, it's everything I expected and I enjoyed it for that.

Dull and boring sums up this remake.Only saving grace which is'nt much is that its got a different story to the 1973 orignal and gore fans will be happy with some of the gore on screen.But its the flat and twist free ending that sum up that the film making did'nt care in what they were doing!!!!!

This movie is although very eerie and creepy...It does also have very corny effects and very poor acting. But due to the blood and gore, I have to give it some credit.
