About Alice, Sweet Alice
Alice, Sweet Alice is a thriller, slasher and murder mystery film all in one. First released in 1976, the film has grown a cult following today and is recognized as one of the earliest slasher films. Put it this way – with the whole masked killer idea, it’s hard to imagine we would have a Scream franchise today without films like Alice, Sweet Alice.
Alice herself is a young girl who gets blamed for the brutal murder of her own sister. She was jealous, after all, at the attention her younger sibling was receiving because of her upcoming first communion. The day before the killing, Alice did lock her in an abandoned building to scare her, so when another attempted murder occurs by a person in a raincoat and creepy mask, Alice is locked up in a psychiatric ward. But little does everyone know, Alice isn’t the killer at all, and they must now find the true identity of the killer behind the mask.
