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.

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


A bloody and very interesting movie with cool effects and good acting. It's Alive III is very enjoyable 68/100

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.
