Trivia

Larry Cohen, writer and director of the original It's Alive (1974), has said of the 2008 remake "I would advise anybody who likes my film to cross the street and avoid seeing the new enchilada." See more »

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 »

Stupid Remake
6 September 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The pregnant college student Lenore Harker (Bijou Phillips) leaves the college before the end of the semester to move to the isolated house in Larkspur of her boyfriend, the architect Frank Davis (James Murray). When Lenore is ready to deliver the baby, they drive to the hospital. In the surgery room, the two doctors and the two nurses are found slaughtered and Lenore and the baby are found covered of blood. When Lenore is released, the family returns to Frank's house. Sooner Lenore discovers that her son is a mutant monster hunger for flesh and blood and she protects him hiding his murders.

"It's Alive" is a stupid remake of the 1974 movie. The story is too imbecile and predictable without any surprise. There is no fun, no scare, only gore and this film does not deserve spending time writing a review. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Anjo Maldito" ("Damned Angel")
