It's back and it has company
8 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Ryan returns in the sequel to It's Alive, and this time he is saving babies - the strange ones. He hooks up with Eugene and Jody (Frederic Forrest and Kathleen Lloyd), who about to have a baby, and somehow he knows it will be a special one.

He manages to get them away from the evil clutches of the law and John Marley, who is probably still angry about losing his horse in The Godfather. But, of course, this is only temporary, as hippie-looking Jody's mother joins the forces of evil and soon they are killing all the babies that are being saved.

It ends the same, with Eugene taking over the work of saving babies for the third film to come.
