Do you know what It’s Alive has in spades?
Pathos. Humanity, man. Tons of it. This movie contains some of the most heart-breakingly realistic depictions of grief I’ve ever seen, honest, understated work from a cast of terrific character actors. Who cares if this is movie about a mutant baby running amuck and tearing the jugulars out of any unsuspecting sap who gets in his way. This is the ultimate Killer Mutant Baby movie. This Killer Mutant Baby movie is more honest with its characters and more truthful with its emotions than most prestige dramas.
