Cohen’s confidence in the picture was finally reaffirmed and he soon found himself a wealthy man due to the project. He also soon found the studio that wanted to abort his baby begging him for a sequel, which he delivered the following year in IT LIVES AGAIN (1978). He finished off the trilogy almost a decade later with IT’S ALIVE 3: ISLAND OF THE ALIVE (1987) and co-wrote the eventual remake IT’S ALIVE (2008). So let’s all wish happy birthday to the Davis baby. Now let’s celebrate and have some cake…oh, junior!
