ALYCE KILLS

 Alyce Kills Movie Review

After accidently pushing her best friend Carroll (Tamara Feldman of Hatchet fame) off the roof of a building, Alyce (Jade Dornfeld) begins to fall into a world of drugs and madness. The beginning of this movie is dreadfully slow--the first twenty minutes or so introduce the characters in a drunken evening and does little to draw you in. After the accident, the movie gets very repetitive--Alyce does drugs, has visions of Carroll, visits her drug dealer to get more, repeat, repeat, repeat. Though this portion of the film tends to drag, and is absolutely filled with drug movie clichés, it does show Alyce's descent fairly well. So an hour and fifteen minutes into this film you may find yourself regretting watching this movie, but those last fifteen minutes the movie...oh those last fifteen minutes. Brutal does not begin to describe what the last fifteen minutes of this movie presents. It is violent, gory, and even contains some humor (albeit very dark humor). The acting in this movie is pretty good for what it is, and James Duval (John the Mod from SLC Punk!) even shows up. This is a movie where you really have to take the good with the bad, and unfortunately, there is a lot of bad that precedes the good. Another major issue with this movie is Alyce herself--the character is simply not likeable or sympathetic, so it's hard to cheer for her or care about her fate. In stealing a lot from a variety of previous films, Alyce Kills is a somewhat unique film, though I can't go so far as to recommend it.
