Shout! Factory’s finely packaged Blu-ray box set is a red-carpet affair that boasts remastered versions of all three films and a slew of extras.
This release is Arrow Video’s symbolic demand to unlock the auteurist prescriptions of many prestige, home-video releases.
It blazes a trail onto Blu-ray with a stellar-looking 1080p transfer and a cornucopia of special features from Shout! Factory.
It depicts us as strung-out survivors who symbolically punish our transgressors with ferocity and loud guitars. It’s punk as a PTSD symptom.
Larry Cohen disquietingly blurs the lines between what’s normal and what’s not, and what it is to love a child unconditionally.
If not as packed with extras as one may have hoped, this It’s Alive DVD is a much-welcomed event.
