my brief thoughts on.... 'It's Alive' (1974)

Netflix summary of this reads that it's full of "giggles and gore".... i found no giggles and no gore.... as a matter of fact it's rated PG....! it's kind of dull, dated and slow.... the baby was done fairly well, but that was about it.... the only saving grace of this movie was the last line.... otherwise it wasn't really worth the time to invest in it....

a mutant baby is born.... kills all the doctors and nurses in the birthing room.... escapes.... goes on a killing spree.... the entire police force are out looking for the baby mutant.... things happen and it ends....2 out of 5 stars.... the extra star is strictly for the final line of dialouge.... otherwise not worth the time.

this movie has sequels and a remake, if you're interested: 'It's Alive 2: It Lives Again', 'It's Alive 3: Island of the Alive' and 'It's Alive' (2008)
