‘It’s awake. It’s hungry.’
It Knows You’re Alone is a 2021 Canadian-American horror film about a young woman tormented by a sinister old phone and a ghostly woman.
“Combining the saturated colour and melodrama of Douglas Sirk, the leering, low-budget vibe of vintage ‘70s Euro-horror and the psychedelic weirdness of TV’s Night Gallery, It Knows You’re Alone tells the tale of Natalie (Bee Dawley), a woman living a lonely life of self-isolation in her crumbling, antique-filled home by the sea.
When she finds a massive, sinister nautical phone washed up on the beach, she brings it home and soon begins having vivid nightmares of a ghostly woman in black (Ali Chappell, Necropolis: Legion). As the haunted phone keeps ringing and dreams bleed into reality, the parasitic woman in black begins to invade Natalie’s mind and body.”
“Haunting images and trance-like music are ahead for you if you take a chance with It Knows You’re Alone […] Running a little short of an hour, It Knows You’re Alone is a trippy and haunting low-budget nightmare from a trailblazer in experimental horror. It’s not going to be for everyone, but if you’re a fan of Jess Franco’s moody and weird films, you’re the right fit for It Knows You’re Alone. M.L. Miller
“Drawing inspiration from prior films and shows of yore makes sense. Unfortunately, It Knows You’re Alone taps into the worst parts of those rather than creating something unique that stands out in some fashion while paying homage to its predecessors. Had they taken a less is more approach; perhaps the film could have been salvaged.” Nightmarish Conjurings
The microbudget Delirium Films release premiered on Amazon Prime and Full Moon Features in October 2021.
