Critic Reviews for Alone with Her
Alone With Her is a pretty engaging tale, and it's refreshing to see a well-acted, suspenseful drama made without a bloated budget or a lot of bloodletting.
Alone With Her plays like an extended voyeur video with nothing new to say about hidden cameras or stalkers or anything.
Even a conventional, albeit cynical, ending can't ruin such effective mood-making.
... this low-budget horror flick builds some claustrophobic tension out of modern anxieties, but it won't scare the bejesus out of you.
Leadenly scripted and blandly overliteral and therefore never capitalizes on the provocativeness of its premise.
Audience Reviews for Alone with Her
There is something really creepy, scary and uncomfortably appealing in the way this effective indie thriller forces us to share its character's taste for voyeurism, and it could have been even better had it avoided those clichés and contrivances that come up in the last half hour.
"Anytime. Anywhere. He's watching."
In Los Angeles, the psychopath Doug stalks the sexy Latin woman Amy is a park and follows her.
Shot entirely using body cams and spy cams, the movie attempts to explore the horror of the increase in stalking due to the advances in and availability of technology. The movie begins with a stalker, played by Colin Hanks, filming women at the beach and at the park, obviously searching for a victim. He chooses a girl, played by Ana Claudia Talancón, and begins following her, planting cameras in her apartment and slowly inserting himself into her life, using the knowledge he gained from the cameras to find common ground. I could see what the writer/director was trying to accomplish, but it was not entertaining enough to hold my interest without taking breaks. The acting was mostly convincing, although there were some spells of poor acting. The ending seemed very film-school and amateur.
Stalker thriller where we are shoved right into the stalker's perspective. Shot entirely through secret cameras this is similar to other "real" films such as Blair Witch and Cloverfield. Hanks does well in the lead, but is also too recognisable to have the desired affect. He's pleasant, creepy and sympathetic. Many of his plans work surprisingly well, which sometimes destroys the illusion. Though Amy is supposedly a naive and vulnerable soul, so it does make sense most of the time. The film checks all the boxes for any thriller and the only real difference is how it's filmed. Well made and engrossing for it's 78 minutes.
