Goofs

Cops need a warrant to search a house, and to get a warrant they need probable cause, so the female cop asking Sgt. Perkins if she needed to call for backup, before they knew if anyone was home and before they heard any yelling, makes no sense. See more »

Tedious and lifeless update of Larry Cohen's "It's Alive".
8 March 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

In this tedious and lifeless remake of Larry Cohen's 1974 campy horror classic pregnant Lenore delivers the baby.During the birth all the doctors and nurses in the operating room are viciously killed by the baby.It seems that her child is thirsty for human and animal blood.This "It's Alive" remake is downright silly and absurd.The film fails to generate even the smallest amount of tension.The killings are mediocre and the CGI effects are cheesy and unconvincing.However I enjoyed the performance of Bijou Philips,because her character has just enough depth to convey at least some of the conflicting emotions between a protective mother and someone frightened for their life.4 out of 10.Watch "Grace" or "Baby Blues" instead.
