With Babies in theaters, we take look back on some of the most memorable babies of all time.
Slide 14: Child of Horror - The It's Alive baby
The 1977 ad for exploitation auteur Larry Cohen’s horror classic contained the memorable tagline: "There is only one thing wrong with the Davis baby. It's alive." Not unlike Rosemary’s naughty child, the little darling in It’s Alive is more beast than baby. Born a violent mutant that chews itself out of the womb, the frightened killing machine wreaks death and destruction wherever it crawls. Cohen was quick to emphasize that as a filmmaker he was less interested in the monstrosity he gave birth to as in “so called normal people acting in an aberrant manner because of an unreal situation they find themselves in.” Babies do that to people.
