Alice, Sweet Alice (Special Edition) [Blu-ray]

ALICE SWEET ALICE

A young Brooke Shields meets an untimely end in this religious-themed proto slasher par excellence from director Alfred Sole.

On the day of her first communion, young Karen (Brooke Shields) is savagely murdered by an unknown assailant in a yellow rain mac and creepy translucent mask. But the nightmare is far from over – as the knife-wielding maniac strikes again and again, Karen s bereaved parents are forced to confront the possibility that Karen s wayward sister Alice might be the one behind the mask.

Bearing influences from the likes of Hitchcock, the then-booming Italian giallo film and more specifically, Nicolas Roeg s Don t Look Now, Alice, Sweet Alice is an absolutely essential – if often overlooked – entry in the canon of 1970s American horror.

    1. Alice: Behind the Mask If there is one word that I think can best sum up this movie is: UNSETTLING. Just the whole premise is just so unsettling. You know this movie is fiction, yet it feels so real. The movie makes you think that it’s a horror story about a disturbed little girl, but then it curve balls into this mystery that has you at the edge of your seat asking questions that you thought you would never think. This is a movie that took my expectations and torn them to shreds, in a good way. This isn’t a horror…

    2. This Will Scare the Daylights out of You How do you give a movie seven stars in a five-star system? This movie certainly deserves seven stars, and more. It is that rarest of flicks — a slasher movie which is not simply a series of brutal murders, one after another, but a genuine thriller.This movie is set in suburban New Jersey in the early Sixties, ostensibly before the assassination of President Kennedy. Its shock value lies precisely in coupling the butchery which occurs in this movie with the assassination of…

    3. More Than Just A Horror Happy Meal I remembered seeing this only once as a kid on television and it was burned on my brain ever since. I never saw anything like this before, nor did I see anything like it afterwards.Now decades later I see it here and I jumped at the chance to watch it again. There were many shocking aspects to the movie and the characters I won’t go into. I still don’t know how to feel about some of it, and that is a rarity for me.There was something different about this movie that makes…
