Movie Info

On a suburban street, two masked men seize a young woman. They bind and gag her and take her to an abandoned, soundproofed apartment. She is Alice Creed, daughter of a millionaire. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic and his younger accomplice Danny, have worked out a meticulous plan. But, Alice is not going to play the perfect victim -- she's not giving in without a fight.

Critic Reviews for The Disappearance of Alice Creed

All Critics (92) | Top Critics (22)

The Disappearance of Alice Creed begins with a van being stolen and ends with a different stolen vehicle being driven away. In between comes a tight, efficient thriller with just three actors and at least two whopper switcheroos.

It's refreshing to see someone putting the needs of the part over her image, and this is far from a halfhearted performance. It's gritty and gutsy.

A kidnapping story told in simple but effective way.

Full Review… | August 14, 2011

... An unnerving thriller that's driven by the threat of violence and the sexual proclivities of its protagonists.

The Ooh Tray

What first-time director Blakeson does with this very familiar situation is cut it to the bone. Not only is there very little fat on this body, there's barely a skeleton.

Tense, thrilling kidnap story too violent for kids.

Audience Reviews for The Disappearance of Alice Creed


J Blakeson as writer/director crafts a witty little dance for three in his kidnapping/extortion plot party. Just who is who is the question that drives the dilemma. Brave performances by all his principals. Good stuff. Am looking to more from this guy.

There needs to be more films like this because I totally dig them. No mainstream actors, low budget, and a basic story that twists and turns until the final minutes and never gives the viewer time to breath. This is as suspenseful and engaging of a movie as I've seen in awhile. The acting is great too. This film didn't get much buzz because it wasn't picked up by a big distributor, but I highly recommend it if you come across it. Crime thrillers don't get a whole lot better than this these days.

Two men prepare an apartment, a van and a place in the woods. Very thoroughly and planned, making sure to leave no traces, their efforts are filmed in short, precise sequences. You know they are up to no good. Once their victim of abduction enters the scene this film's personnel is complete. Three characters, mostly sticking to one apartment is all this film needs for a very exciting ride and a few glimpses of grim humor. Such a minimalistic attempt has to rely on great acting and writing and it's all there. The result is intense, mean, nail-bitingly thrilling and offers quite a few surprises. One of the most interesting and well done thrillers of recent years.
