It's Alive is a remake of Larry Cohen's trash-horror-flick from the 70s of the same name, which back then was already followed by two sequels. Cohen was involved in writing the remake's script.

The prematurely delivered baby of a young couple (Bijou Phillips and James Murray) already creates a massacre in the operating room. The unusual case remains unsolved for the time being and thus the mysterious killer-baby can keep hunting merrily in the vicinity of its parents' home.

Even if this rough plot summary and the cut scenes suggest it: you shouldn't necessarily expect a fun-splatter movie.

To achieve an R-rating, some of the movie's bloody scenes had to be toned down. As usual, an unrated version, probably containing the movie in its original form, was released simultaneously with the R-rated DVD.
