Meanwhile the baby continues to kill people in town. Out of the blue, Frank discovers a dark secret about Lenore and the baby.
A couple of days ago I saw the awful remake of "It's Alive" and I decided to watch again the 1974 B-movie of Larry Cohen to reevaluate it in the present days. The original film is better and better than the lame remake of 2010. The analogy of Frank with Dr. Frankenstein is one of the good dialogs of this film. The madness process of Lenore Davis is more plausible than the ridiculous behavior of Lenore Harker of the new version. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Nasce um Monstro" ("A Monster is Born")
