It’s Alive Remake on DVD in August

It's Alive Remake Heading to DVDGiven we live in an age where darn near every horror movie hitting theaters is either a remake or a sequel, it’s kind of surprising to hear that a remake is bypassing theaters and going straight to DVD. Such is the case of the remake of Larry Cohen’s killer baby opus It’s Alive.

First Look Studios has announced an October 6th DVD release date for Josef Rusnak’s remake of It’s Alive starring Bijou Philips about a new mother slipping into madness to protect her newborn killer mutant baby.

No further DVD details are available at this time, but they should be forthcoming shortly.

Of course this indicates that the movie might suck more than a baby's bottle, but the Weinstein brothers regularly take dumps on perfectly good films while releasing crap (Rob Zombie's Halloween) to theaters.

So, maybe this will still be good. I hope!

The original is a classic, made at a time when horror could cater to adults. I'm interested to see how this remake stacks up, but I won't be buying it. The promo trailer released last year was pretty fucking bleak - mainly because Bijou looked absolutely pitiful in the role.
