1.0 out of 5 stars Described with 1 word: Garbage March 20, 2010
The original 1974 version was nothing to write home about and this movie is beyond that! I wound up fast forwarding through the majority of this movie! How in the world is a new born baby capable of throwing people around like the Hulk???? Are you kidding me!? This was one of the worst movies I've seen in a while! Don't waste your time!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible! October 11, 2009
Trust me when I say this movie is bad. The production was terrible. The people talking was low and the music was loud. The acting isn't worth anything and the ending was not only open-ended, it didn't make much sense. Everything that can be wrong with a movie is in this one. Don't be fooled because you recognize the name. This isn't worth your time.

Oh, yeah, I know why, because the majority of horror cinema offerings, when they're not sequels, are friggin' remakes! Right. That's the real reason why horror remakes make dough. They get the mainstream simps to see them as if they were new and they get us real horror buffs to see them because we're so damn hungry for horror that we run out of food. Well, here we are with It's Alive 2009. Who in the hell would've thought that the 1972 Larry Cohen cheapie of the same name would be worthy of a remake over thirty years later? NO ONE! But here it is direct to video ready to be snatched up by the unsuspecting horror geek. I even had decent to high hopes for this remake seeing that Larry Cohen, the director and writer of the original(as well as Q: The Winged Serpent, Bone, God Told Me To, The Stuff), was involved in its screenplay. But, then there's two other names listed after his. Don't know much about this project honestly so I can't speculate on what his and the other screenwriter's contributions were, but I can tell we have a real mess of a horror film on our hands.

Lets talk first about the good things this remake does before we get to the real horror. They slanted the angle of the story from the original. Sure, they did the usual 'youthing' up of the main characters Frank Davis(James Murray) and Lorna(Bijou Phillips), but they also changed the main plot thrust. In the original film as soon as the mutant baby is born he's gone and everyone is out to find him. Father Frank has a bond with the mutant tot and tries to protect him despite the fact that his son is a monsterous killer. In this remake they scaled the story down. It mostly takes place in a secluded country home in New Mexico.

1.0 out of 5 stars Killer Baby? February 10, 2011
By Einsatz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
That was the question posed in the original movies: was this a baby or a monster? In the original movies they went out of their way to make them monsters, no mistake. In this movie they make it a 'baby' rarely seen. How scary is that? Where are the fangs, the claws, and that horrible noise they made? Gone. Instead, we get a father who's barely involved, a mother who abruptly goes mad (in an unconvincing manner), and a little brother who watches his cat disappear but never bothers to mention it to anyone! Hello, something under my bed swiped my cat!
What was poignant in the original, who was responsible for this monster, the parents or nature, was sadly lacking in this pathetic little remake.
As others have mentioned, was it necessary to remake the original? No. Did they attempt to make this movie better than the first 3? No. Have we been duped? Yes. Did we waste our money? Oh, yeah. Should we warn people of impending gloom should they bother buying this mess-terpiece? At the very least.
Consider yourself warned.
I did, however, love the DVD cover. But it's a trap!

1.0 out of 5 stars Patently offensive unless you're a pro-life zealot January 14, 2011
It's Alive (Josef Rusnak, 2008)

To be fair, I knew going in that the recent Hollywood big-budget remake of It's Alive was going to suck. After all, look at all of the strikes it had against it.
1. First and foremost, it's a Hollywood big-budget remake of an American horror movie that went straight to DVD. If that doesn't set alarm bells off in your head in a culture where 80% of the horror films coming out of Hollywood are remakes/reboots/sequels, you're not paying attention.
2. Stars Bijou Phillips, who was always supposed to be the next big thing after Almost Famous and Bully and never made it (her biggest film since: Havoc). In my opinion, it's because she has one of the most annoying voices in all of Hollywood. As the lead, she gets to use it a lot here. Be warned.
3. Directed by Josef Rusnak. If that name doesn't mean anything to you, you have forgotten The Thirteenth Floor, a 1999 sci-fi film so badly received it came close to killing the careers of everyone involved. Rusnak didn't direct again until 2007 (his biggest film since: The Art of War II).
4. The largest film anyone save Phillips in the principal cast had worked on before this movie was Nanny McPhee.
5. Special effects were by Ivo Jivkov. Another name you don't know. Among his work is The Fourth Kind, the 2008 Day of the Dead remake, Mega Snake, the 2006 bomb The Black Dahlia, and Mansquito. And yes, those are the best films to his credit at IMDB.
All of which is forgivable in some films, of course. But the movie takes a turn straight into unforgivable territory about two-thirds of the way through, when the script suddenly makes very clear that it's got a not-at-all buried anti-RU486 message inherent in it. Yep, that's "liberal Hollywood" for you, right there. If you even think you may be the slightest bit pro-choice, this movie should outrage you beyond belief. Everyone else, you may enjoy it if you can get past Bijou Phillips' voice. (zero)
