Grim ladylike suspense story, that's well-acted and has a well-conceived story that keeps you in suspense to the end.

Audience Reviews for What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?

½

Mrs Marrable cons her elderly maids out of their savings then murders them. When Aunt Alice's friend goes missing, it's up to her to find out what has happened. Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice serves as another one of the psycho bitty genre popular at the time (thanks to Whatever Happened to Baby Jane and Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte). The acting was superb, it was awesome to see two old ladies fight in such a brutal manner. The twists were great too, complemented by the darkly humorous tone, Whatever Happened to Aunt Alice is a film worthy of viewing.

Great actors and some good black comedy, but this is a thriller too, and as a thriller it's predictable and lacks suspense. Overall, it's an okay movie, but it could have been a lot better.
