A foam baby from It's Alive
Warner Bros., 1974. Painted formed foam rubber over metal rods and screws of a muscular and heavily veined adult male body with talon-like bloody fingernails and toenails and an oversized menacing and horrific baby head with plexiglass eyes and fangs, mounted on a wooden base, accompanied by a baby blanket. Special effects makeup artist Rick Baker created this frightening, demonic baby for director (and writer and producer) Larry Cohen's horror tale of a hellish baby who, upon being born, kills everyone in the birthing room except for Mom and Dad. Baker's genius has resulted in many Academy Award® nominations and 7 wins. Among his many accomplishments is the makeup behind An American Werewolf in London (1981) and Michael Jackson's Thriller (1983).
10 x 13 x 22.5 in.
