Edit
Trivia "It's Alive" was filmed and edited simultaneously with another Larry Cohen feature, Hell Up in Harlem (1973), which was shot on the weekends during the production of "It's Alive." This means that many of the cast and crew put in consecutive 7 day work weeks to create the films. See more »
