Writer-director Larry Cohen's sci-fi horror trilogy. In 'It's Alive!' (1974), a woman who gives birth to a monster. Blackly humourous, the little vampire nasty goes on a killing spree in Los Angeles, leaving the family confused at what to do. In the sequel, 'It Lives Again' (1978), an expectant couple (Frederic Forrest and Kathleen Lloyd) are visited by a stranger (John P. Ryan) who warns them, to their horror, that their unborn baby is a mutant monster. The man takes the couple to the hideout of an underground organisation, who claim they will protect the baby from a rival task force dedicated to eradicating these monster infants. In 'Island of the Alive' (1986), the third and final film in the trilogy, the mutant babies introduced in the previous two films are shipped off to a remote desert island as part of the government's plan to eliminate them from society. But the father of one of the babies, Steve Jarvis (Michael Moriarty), appalled by the government's treatment of the infants, leads a protest expedition to the island to free them.
