ALICE, SWEET ALICE

Assistive Listening T Hearing Loop
ALICE, SWEET ALICE

Part of Weekend Classics and Halloween Horrors.

When a young girl (Brooke Shields) is brutally murdered by a killer in a yellow rain slicker during her first communion, her disturbed and withdrawn older sister (Paula E. Sheppard) becomes the main suspect. Touching on issues of mental health, religious hypocrisy, and the dark line between the worlds of children and adults, director Alfred Sole’s underrated and nearly forgotten twisty Hitchcock riff packs a thoroughly modern punch. Long overdue for reevaluation—and paired here with PSYCHO, the grandfather of all slasher films—ALICE SWEET ALICE offers a complicated psychological landscape filled with an assortment of deranged and dangerous characters that feels completely in line with the current arthouse horror film resurgence.
