What sets the film a notch above standard genre fare is its ability to ask bigger questions about a stalker like Doug.
A neatly insinuating idea, flawlessly executed, Alone With Her marks out its stars and director as ones to watch.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A smart, unsettling drama that finds new uses for tatics devised by movies like The Stepfather and The Blair Witch Project.
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.
A novel spin on an oft-told tale, Alone with Her is a fine little indie indeed. What could have been just another gimmick flick turns out to be a pretty intense ride.
| Original Score: 4/5
The moral of the story: If you meet someone whose tastes mirror your own to a scary degree, then by all means, be scared.
This isn't a psychological horror film so much as a slice-of-life twentysomething tale, in which one party happens to be quietly very not-normal.
An unsettling tale of modern espionage horror.
Alone with Her has a dog and a rampant sense of dread, the kind you don't recover from for at least a few days. I'm on the first day.
Even a conventional, albeit cynical, ending can't ruin such effective mood-making.
| Original Score: 4/6
exudes the overall uncomfortable air of watching a depraved home movie
| Original Score: 3/5
Alone With Her is a tense, well-shot little thriller in the vein of 'fatal attraction' youth flicks like Fear, The Crush, and Swimfan.
| Original Score: 3/4
Through Hanks' and Talancon's subtle, naturalistic performance [writer-director Eric Nicholas] cultivates a human dimension often missing from thrillers.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Alone With Her has the kind of high ick factor that leaves you squirming -- not because Doug is so diabolical a creation, but because what he does to satisfy his pathology is so practical.
| Original Score: 3/4
A Blair Witch Project for the new, surveillance-obsessed millennium.
| Original Score: B-
Far superior to the generic thrillers churned out by the big studios.
A relentlessly-disturbing, cautionary tale about how easy it might be for a deranged maniac to worm his way into your good graces.
This film chills and hits every paranoia button perfectly.
The plausibility of the situation (aided tremendously by Talancón's wonderfully natural performance) makes for a deeply disturbing viewing experience.
| Original Score: 7/10
Ably-acted -- the leads are perfectly cast, and their performances leave lasting impressions.
