The Reviews for It's Alive (2008) 720p

Just enjoy the silliness.Reviewed bymylimboVote: 8/10

A hideous mutant baby is born and escapes from the hospital, now it's scared and killing people. They learn that its on its way home, to find protection from its parents.

A pretty decent low-budget exploitation horror film by writer/director Larry Cohan (Q-The winged Serpent), this film takes the abortion issue to another level. A simple plot that's absurdly fun and silly to watch-but it's the cleverness of the script, that never has a dull moment.

The make-up effects and the baby puppet was designed and operated by Rick Baker (An American werewolf in London, Men in black, Ed Wood), the design looks decent enough for a low-budget film and one of his first major film designs, but because of Cohen's great direction we see through the eyes of the baby (in double vision) or it's hidden in the shadows and only small snippets of it are shown. We don't see it fully until the end, giving it a much more creepy feel to the film.

It centers more on the sound effects than the visuals, so there is more of a presence with it's nerve wracking crying and snarling. That actually helps give the atmosphere a dark and bleak feel of depression.

The performances are top notch from Sharon Farrell as the unstable mother Lenore Davies, James Dixon as Lieutenant Perkins and John Ryan as Frank Davis the cold-hearted father who wants his baby killed, his portrayal really does ground the film and brings an emotional element that sucks you in.

One the greatest music composers Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, North by North West, Psycho, Taxi Driver, All that money cant buy) comes up with a superb score and a chilling main theme.

The cinematography is rather good towards to the feel of hysteria and tension, giving it a nauseating aura and good use of the baby's point of view. The film's pace is excellent and leads up to a fine climax.

It's no great feat of its genre, but it deserves merit. A very good film that's helped by it's excellent performances, script, direction and music score.


Attack of the monkey babyReviewed byPaul Celano (chelano)Vote: 4/10

The problem with this film was not really the acting. It was the story and the thing that was suppose to scare the viewers. John P. Ryan plays the lead and for some reason, I really liked his performance. He just had the look and acting to really put the film on edge. His wife is played by Sharon Farrell, who at the right time could act. But sometimes she seemed a little off. The whole story line of this film is ridiculous. Woman gives birth to a baby that is mutated and it kills people. No real back story on how it happened. Maybe it was some drugs she was taking. The baby was suppose to scare you. But how can you be scared by something that reminds you of a small monkey of some sort. Some of the other cast was pretty cheesy including the son of Ryan of Farrell, but he was young and didn't know better. There needed to be more jumping scenes also. But every time one can up, they would trigger it with the baby crying or something moving. So that way you know it was coming. The movie overall was missing a lot, including a good ending. Maybe if they added more gore, it could of been more of a cult following than what it was. But most of the gore scenes were a few deep scratches from the babies strange sloth like nails.

Larry Cohen has made a name for himself for producing offbeat horrormovies, and this story of a killer deformed baby certainly belongs inhis filmography. It's Alive is a huge highlight of the horror genre,and one that doesn't get the praise that it deserves. The film isnotable amongst other films of similar plotting because of the way thatit fully explores it's premise. Rather than focusing on the monster andthe murders, Cohen sees fit to show the audience the effect that thebirth of a murderous monster has on the family at the centre of thestory, the government, the family friends and various other entities;all of which helps to aid the film in it's bid to be a complete horrorthriller. Of course, the film is too silly to be truly touching, butthe idea of trying to get the audience to empathise with the charactersin this sort of movie is nice, and it adds to kitsch campness of themovie, which does it no end of favours in this kitsch fan's opinion.

The acting adheres to the typical, and much loved, B-movie styling andthat is another plus point to add to this movie's resume. John P. Ryanin particular is superb as the upset father, and we see him go througha range of emotions in response to the birth of his 'son', which is atreat indeed. The script isn't the greatest work of art ever to bebrought to the screen, but it's always inventive enough to ensure thatthe action stays interesting and It's Alive hardly suffers frombecoming trite and boring. The creature effects aren't the best everseen, but Larry Cohen hides this fact by never completely showing thecreature. This hampers the movie in a way, as it will no doubt get onmany viewers' nerves as seeing the monster is normally a highlight ofthis type of movie; but on the other hand, seeing the monster usuallyresults in disappointment - so at least Cohen's film stays away fromthat! On the whole, while this film will do nothing for fans of seriousart movies; horror fans, particularly very B-horror fans, will be inheaven. Highly recommended!
