It’s Alive, Larry Cohen’s 1974 cult thriller starring John P. Ryan, Sharron Farrell, James Dixon and Guy Stockwell, is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary with a screening at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles. The film will be screening on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 at 10:00 pm. Director Cohen and actress Farrell are scheduled to appear in person to discuss the film. From the press release:
Our modern world is full of marvels—but also polluted air, foods sprayed with deadly chemicals, misused drugs and hidden radioactive substances. Ever wonder how these poisons might affect a developing child in the womb? This cult thriller offers a shocking possibility—and in so doing has become a creepy cult classic! It’s Alive is the first film of the now-legendary terror trilogy from writer/director Larry Cohen (Q: The Winged Serpent, God Told Me To) about murderous mutants—and its birth was chillingly midwived by the crucial contributions of two Academy Award winners: makeup master Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London), who created the makeup and “played” the infant monster, and composer Bernard Herrmann (Psycho).
The Nuart Theatre is located at 11272 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90067. It can be reached at (310) 473 – 8530
