Movie Info

The third and final entry in the "It's Alive" series of horror films features touches of black humor and razor-sharp social commentary as it chronicles the further misadventures of a group of murderous mutant babies who in the previous episode had been taken to a lonely island. Scientists go back to the island and discover that the babies have grown up and have begun making more monstrous offspring. The mutants rebel against the scientist, kill all but one and head for the Florida coast.

Critic Reviews for It's Alive III: Island of the Alive

All Critics (9)

The weakest one in the series.

July 20, 2009 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Cohen really blood sucked his idea on this one

February 18, 2008 | Rating: 1/4

Finishes the series' natural allegorical evolution.

January 26, 2006 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Like Romero's Day of the Dead, it's the weakest of the three films. Unlike Romero's film, it doesn't have quite as much going for it, despite some fairly decent gore.

April 17, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Stretches the darkly comedic aspects of the trilogy to the breaking point.

November 4, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Cohen continues to milk his cash cow series with some success.

Audience Reviews for It's Alive III: Island of the Alive

This one sets a different tone compared to the first two films in the series and doesn't take itself too seriously. It's got some nice gore and some bizarre humourous moments, and you also get a better look at the mutant misfits and even fully grown ones too. It is a pretty stupid film though and quite juvenille, so not a classic here, but it is fun.

A whole tropical Island of monster babies is visited for maxiumum horror and hilarity. Like a Jurassic Park sequel, men with guns become the hunted ones against the hoard. Fun and cheap.

Super Reviewer

worth it only for Moriarity's performance, which is as idiosyncratic as one of Walken's; not a good movie but the least logy of the series
