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 »
It took the police over a day to check Dr. Baldwin's office, and when they radioed back, the cop was on the same stretch of road, in front of the same mountain. See more »
I understand IMDb's ten line minimum for posted reviews, but there are times when ten lines are hard to fill. There are even those times when ten words are pretty tough. This terrible remake of Larry Cohen's minor-classic of 1974 is one such occasion. It is pure tripe and little more really needs to be said beyond a sincere admonition to avoid at all costs. But in the service of a minimum line count, I will add that it is typical Millennium fare - shot in Bulgaria with a multinational hodgepodge of cast and crew, working from an amateurish script for a director with no discernible talent. It never ceases to amaze me how so many people can have so little pride in what they do.
