Remake Radar: It’s Alive

 

 

Welcome to the September edition of Remake Radar, where we tackle Hollywood’s penchant for remaking previous films (for better or worse). This edition’s remake: It’s Alive.

 

“It’s Alive” (1974)

 

Stars: John P. Ryan, Sharon Farell, James Dixon, and Shamus Locke.

 

Director: Larry Cohen

 

Story: Frank and Lenore Davies are expecting their second child and soon give birth to a little monster. Literally, it goes on a killing spree any time it gets scared which happens quite frequently. “Hunting and killing babies doesn’t seem to be my specialty.”

 

What do we know now? It’s being released before the end of the year! Directed by Josef Rusnak from a re-worked screenplay submitted by Larry Cohen, it stars Skye Bennett, Ty Glaser, Laura Giosh, and Bijou Phillips. It’s already been released at a German film festival, and should be here in theatres or DVD by year’s end.
