mutant babies

"It's Alive" is one of those horror comedy films that I have always heard a lot about but haven't had a chance to watch until recently, when I found it on Netflix Instant Watch. Written and directed by Larry Cohen, the movie features a couple, Frank (John Ryan) and Lenore (Sharon Farrell), who give birth to a monsterous, mutant baby who kills people when frightened. Despite the ridiculous premise, the movie is funny, original and at times, pretty darn suspenseful.
