YMMV / It's Alive

  • Awesome Music: The original film's score is by none other than Bernard Herrmann.
  • Narm Charm: "What's wrong with my baby!?!"
  • Nightmare Fuel: The 30-second TV spot with a quiet, matter-of-fact delivery by a soft-voiced narrator is plenty unsettling, even though all you see is a rotating bassinet with a little claw hanging over its side.
    • Although, for some viewers, the narrator concluding the spot with "Rated PG" may be a bit of Nightmare Retardant. (How hardcore-horrifying can a PG-rated flick be?)
