It's Alive (1974)

3 / 5
Tagline: Whatever it is. I'ts alive and deadly
Directed by: Larry Cohen
Written by: Larry Cohen
Actors include: John P. Ryan, Sharon Farrell, James Dixon
Genre: Horror
Length: 91 minutes
Banned: Norway, Finland
Country: USA

Actually one of my least favorites from Larry Cohen but still an amusing murderous baby picture. So the Davis couple is expecting...but not expecting what they end up delivering! Their baby is of course a mutant with claw like hands...oh and it's evil! It's just a bit dull considering you have a murderous mutant baby on the loose you'd expect more action and stuff! Still it did have barely any budget and I'm sure this would be a parent's worst nightmare! It's actually not shot very comically at all and the serious nature of the film actually kinda hinders it I think because the dialog and such can be quite silly. Still something you will likely want to see but don't be surprised if it isn't as exciting as you think.
