Critic Reviews:

You hear “killer baby movie” and you immediately assume you’ll be dealing with some over the top hack job from Troma, but It’s Alive is an oddly subdued and mature picture dealing seriously with basic adult fears (all of which probably sounds disappointing until you remember there’s a savage, flesh-eating infant at the heart of it all).


It’s Alive (1974), Cohen’s potent take on abortion, the pharmaceutical industry, and (extremely) unconditional love.


It’s Alive exhibits an inevitable amateurishness of low-budget filmmaking, particularly when it comes to the weak colour photography. However, Larry Cohen rides through all shortcomings with a remarkable assurance.
