Quotes

Dr. Perry: [about the babies] more alert everyday,they communicate, they're very much aware of each other, they've been quite calm and I think they trust me. My test's indicate they have the mental capacity of a human infant at 21 months
Eugene Scott: I'd like to see them
Dr. Perry: Are you sure?
Eugene Scott: Yeah I saw mine, I'm not afraid to look anymore
Dr. Perry: One thing I think you will find they bear a striking resemblance to each other almost like brother and sister.
Eugene Scott: Oh is... is one of them a female?

* out of 4.
3 June 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Weak follow-up to the original cult classic It's Alive is virtually a remake of the first film, but with three babies this time around instead of one. Dull, boring, talky horror flick with a disappointing score and just about all the action and scares confined to the end, but by then it is too late. Rick Baker actually did the poor effects for this inept sequel.

Rated R; Violence & Profanity.
