ALYCE-KILLS_POSTER_lowres

Alyce Kills is a 2011 American horror feature film written and directed by Jay Lee (The Slaughter; Zombie Strippers; The House with 100 Eyes). It stars Jade Dornfeld, Tamara Feldman and James Duval. 

After accidentally knocking her best friend off a roof, Alyce is haunted by guilt and delves into a brutal nightmare wonderland of sex, drugs and violence, her mind tearing itself apart… along with anyone else who gets in her way.

Reviews:

“There’s a lot going on in the subtext of Alyce Kills, including thematic explorations of obsession, identity, and morality. We’re given some indications that Alyce may have been slightly off-kilter before the horrible incident on the roof. The ladies’ night of debauchery began after a period of separation. The exact details are not discussed, but a reference to Single White Female speaks volumes.” Saucy Josh, Blood and Guts for Grown Ups

“There is an amazing style to the way it is filmed that made it feel a little like The Virgin Suicides at times – hazy and unsteady and compelling to look at. Other times you’ll note the standard ‘twitch and shake’ shots and quick chop edits that accompany many mental breakdown movies but they really don’t feel that burdensome or take away from the overall feel.” Flay Otters, Horror-Movies.ca

“Fans who enjoy good character development and gritty storylines will appreciate this addition. Combining both those qualities with some ghostly hallucinations and twisted murders – some of which rival the finest moments in slasher films – creates a unique film that doesn’t fit comfortably into any subgenre…” John Strand, Best Horror Movies
