Alice, Sweet Alice (Communion) Reviews

August 13, 2020
While its plotting sashays into the ludicrous, with its campiness always underlined by a queasy peculiarity, Alice, Sweet Alice is a captivating exercise in the macabre.

A flop upon its original release, Alice, Sweet Alice has since been saved from complete irrelevance by film scholars and cultists, even if it still doesn't quite enjoy the reputation it deserves.

Well regarded among horror fans, Alice Sweet Alice has aged surprisingly well and stands up to repeated viewings like many of the best films of the seventies, particularly with its look and style.

Sole develops a very strange atmosphere... [he] uses striking colors to punctuate the grim atmosphere, and occasionally an extremely wide angle will crop up to accentuate the feeling of unease; even the sound is tricky.
