” …poses plenty of questions and gives us a number of scenarios and clues to what the true nature of this story is and the wicked fun is the guessing game. Alone With You is a dark character study with some nightmarish imagery.” Bloody Flicks
“Alone with You is not to be missed. Well-acted and skillfully executed, it’s filled with moments of fear, dread, and uncertainty. Charlie is being haunted, but by what? There is a truth at the heart of this story that is as terrifying as anything that she sees within the walls of her apartment, but it will take time for her to fully understand it.” Daily Dead
“This one might play with your sanity in ways that get a bit irritating. However, it definitely also has something about it that kept me hooked. As strong as the ending was, it would have been stronger if the overall editing had been tighter. Also, you will definitely want to check out this one for Barbara Crampton who is always amazing!” Heaven of Horror
” …a nifty little thriller that isn’t short on surprise […] Establishing mood and sustaining suspense is difficult so credit goes to Brooks and Bennett because they clearly know what they’re doing. At 83 minutes, the film still feels a tad long and without the material to totally justify that length…but hey, horror legend Barbara Crampton makes a cameo and with that, all is forgiven.” The MN Movie Man
In the US, Dark Star Pictures will release Alone With You theatrically in select locations on February 4th, 2022, then On-Demand on February 8th.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Dark Star for the release of our debut feature Alone with You. We share in their independent spirit and interest in challenging the status quo,” said Bennet and Brooks. They continued, “They truly understand the value of character-driven story-telling which has always been at the heart of our work. We cannot wait to unleash this twisted vision into the world with them.”
In Alone with You, we follow a young woman (Bennett) as she painstakingly prepares a romantic homecoming for her girlfriend. As she goes about this her apartment begins to feel more and more like a tomb as voices, shadows, and hallucinations reveal a truth she has been unwilling to face.
“Emily and Justin have crafted a truly unique horror film that utilizes atmosphere and human emotion to drive a narrative of terror that will hit closer to home than most of us would like to admit. This is a horror film that is much more than horror, spotlighting incredible female performances, diversity and a feeling of claustrophobia that could not be more relevant in our current society” said Michael Repsch, Dark Star Pictures.
