It Lives Again

Starring: Frederic Forrest, Kathleen Lloyd, John P. Ryan, John Marley
Is it human? Is it beast? Whatever it is, IT LIVES AGAIN in this grisly shocker, the second film in horror-master Larry Cohen’s ALIVE trilogy that also includes It’s Alive and It’s Alive III: Island of the Alive.
Cohen, writer of the police-action thrillers I, the Jury; Best Seller and Maniac Cop as well as the acclaimed auteur of other cult horror hits like The Stuff and A Return to Salem’s Lot, teams with master monster maker Rick Baker to bring to the screen a hideous threesome of mutant baby-monsters that are the evolutionary response to man’s polluted environment. Fresh from the cradle, these frightened creatures lash out with deadly claws at what they don’t understand… and they don’t understand much. There are only three, but they could reproduce into uncontrollable millions if someone doesn’t step forward to destroy them.
Will the next stage of human evolution become our species’ murderous last? Watch and find out. But be advised: Only the fit will survive.
