Experience Larry Cohens Its Alive trilogy like never before in high definition!
Its newborn and ... Its Alive ... and murder is what it knows best! A proud couples bundle of joy is really a newborn terror in filmmaker Larry Cohens cautionary cult hit that tapped into environmental fears. The horror grows when multiple child monsters rampage in the first sequel It Lives Again as two brave parents try to stop them by becoming the bait for their spree. The now global mutants are rounded up and relocated to a far-flung island in Its Alive III: Island of the Alive. Will a parents greatest nightmare become the worlds gravest fear? Find out ... if you dare.

This box set from Shout!’s Scream Factory label (the films are licensed from Warner Bros) is a top-tier presentation of these genre classics. Each movie has its own disc, and each disc its own Blu ray case (with reversible cover art). I am told that the transfers are noticeably improved from the Warners DVDs (which I do not own; I still have IT’S ALIVE on Warner Bros. VHS, however). The tremendously-entertaining audio commentaries by director Cohen have been ported over from those DVDs, along with several brand new video extras exclusive to this set. Even if you own IT’S ALIVE or its sequels on DVD, this box set is a terrific upgrade. Highly, highly recommended, even as a blind purchase—you will not be disappointed. I do not buy many physical Blu rays any more, but I made a special exception for this set (which is a steal even at its suggested list price; the sale price makes this a no-brainer purchase). Thank you, Shout! Factory, for your great presentation of this nostalgic favorite.
But you want to know about the transfers - they're great. The first two look exactly like what they are - very low-budget programmers. The shocker was the third film, which looks incredible - different DP, in this case a DP with the initials DP - Daniel Pearl. You can't really go wrong with this set - it's just too much killer mutant baby fun.
