Critic Reviews for It's Alive

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Rotten (2)

  • 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

    November 13, 2009
  • Shoddy, ploddy and utterly stupid, It's Alive is proof that the Hollywood horror genre is in desperate need of some CPR.

Audience Reviews for It's Alive

    [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] 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.

    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.

    Rudimentary reworking of Larry Cohen's cult fave brings nothing fresh or new to the table instead going for a by-the-numbers approach with no scares, typically bad CG and a laughable killer baby that the filmmakers wisely kept offscreen until the end.

    That is the most ugliest baby ever! It takes most of the film before they show it. after awhile I got bored of it but still watched cause I wanted to see what Daniel or as I was calling him Demon child looked like. If you want a moral for the story.. I?d say the message to the movie is pro-life?. Disappointed at the ending D
