It's Alive, in the scope of when it was produced and released, attempts to combine all horror elements with the added emotional connection of something as innocent and unspoiled as a baby. Lenore (never mind the Edger Alan Poe connection) played by Sharon Farrell, is due to give birth. Her military husband (James Dixon), rushes her to the hospital for an emergency delivery. Whether the elements are supernatural or biological, no one knows. After the baby is born, the little devil goes on a killing spree throughout the delivery room. A first person perspective through the baby's eyes emerges for the audience to experience all the rage and curiosity of the menacing newborn monster. Along with a cinemagraphic and motion-centered journey through pint-sized mayhem and ruthlessness, this movie also features a world class soundtrack and a hint at what the future of horror has in store. The subject and situation of It's Alive is extraordinary, but it spawned several sequels and gave permission for horror movie producers to further push the edge.
