Fans of "American Mary" will love "Alyce Kills." Look close and see references to Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland." Dark, gory, and witty...this film will definitely deliver on the blood and guts (literally). Perhaps a touch of feminist ideology keeps Alyce likable to the viewer, but do not be afraid to lose the metaphor and enjoy this film as a horror story. Available on Netflix.

Alyce Kills, Girl gone Homicidal
Battered, bloodied, and bruised....but alive! Hence Tamara Feldman's ultimate fate in the original "Hatchet" film. She may have survived the ultimate slasher, but can she survive her BFF? 2011's "Alyce Kills" (aka "Alyce") will deliver a more fatal outcome for the beautiful Ms. Feldman. Be warned, unsettling is the keyword for today's film. If you were freaked out by AnnaLynne McCord in "Excision," or Catherine Deneuve in "Repulsion," then Jade Dornfeld, as Alyce, will certainly give you nightmares. Sorry for this next sentence, but I quote, from this film, "...lesbo-necrophile, f***ed up s**t." Yep, this one will make you squirm. However psychological much of the horror is here, "Alyce Kills" also has plenty of gore.
