Critic Reviews for It Lives Again
Though this is all so much silliness, Cohen effectively uses a good cast topped by Frederic Forrest and Kathleen Lloyd to build up suspense for the slashing, growling attacks by the terrible tykes.
On the whole this is a good film in theory rather than practice. The script is written in the Albert Memorial style - ungainly in structure, weighed down with extraneous detail.
Mr. Cohen wrote, directed and produced the film, which, most of the time, has the manner of something improvised in blind panic.
The excellent first sequel to It's Alive expands the concept of the original and finds a more-confident Larry Cohen behind the camera.
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.
