NYPD detectives Shepard and Powell are working on a bizarre case of a ritualistic Aztec murder. Meanwhile, something big is attacking people of New York and only greedy small time crook Jimmy Quinn knows where its lair is.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
A comic-book artist meets a woman on the NY streets, but after a quick flirtation, she suddenly collapses, and is picked-up by an old ambulance. He checks all the hospitals in the area, but the woman seems to have disappeared.
James Earl Jones,
Rick Baker made an oversized body cast of the infant which he put his wife in, to which Larry Cohen questioned on how he could put his wife in there, to which Baker responded that he had to have someone as he had 24 hrs. a day available and works out of his garage and he needed someone to put the cast on and she was there, so in the end Baker made her a model for the monster.

Yes, this movie features a baby of a different kind...the kind that crawls and kills!!! Yes, a killer baby that for some reason me and my family watched quite a few times when I was a kid. Somewhat creepy and somewhat cheesy at the same time as parts of it are easily made fun of. The movie has a couple of kills in it, but it really is not all that gory compared to an Italian horror movie. The story is okay and it does not try to explain things to much, unlike the later "It's Alive" movies would do. The movie ends in a rather different fashion too as it is somewhat surprising what the man does at the end. Still, the thought of a killer baby is kind of creepy and kind of funny and that is why this movie somewhat works. More gore and such would have made it better and more sewer scenes too, for some reason I find the sewer to be a very good horror backdrop that is used somewhat in movies, but not not enough for my tastes. All in all though this movie is not boring and somewhat fun to watch and in some parts make fun of.
