If You Survive This Night... Nothing Will Scare You Again.
To another particular horror film from the golden era of the 70s. Influenced by the abundant giallo, the American origin "Alice Sweet Alice ' (an alternative title was" Communion ") offers its own version in a specific subcategory and was perhaps the crowning moment of director Alfred Sole. Another notable element of the film is the first cinematic presence of Brooke Shields.
The main character is the twelve-year-old Alice that after the horrible death of her sister (which impersonates the Brook Shields) to the Church shortly before her first communion is regarded as the number one suspect for the murder. A second attempted murder of aunt Alice's sobareyei things and the parents of the little girl wooed by police while trying to offer maximum psychological help in their cranky daughter. Could the little Alice to have committed these brutal acts? Or maybe eventually someone else hiding behind the mysterious figure with yellow coat and eerie mask committed hits in all cases? And the murders continue …
The Paula E. Topanga Sheppard the twelve-year-old Alice, in fact was then 19 years old!
Many are notable features of the film. In principle, it is impossible not to feel in the shoes of the morbid atmosphere of paranoia that prevails throughout most of the course. In this help the haunting music and the nerve interpretations of the actors, many of whom constantly screaming and ululating! Really such a ruckus is an often not on film! The interesting thing is that all this paranoid situation blends well with the film giving a remarkable peculiarity. Apart from them there are loudmouths and some other characters that are nailed in memory like the chubby man who lives in the same building with the family of Alice who is disgusted with dirty habits.
Alice herself is a strange phenomenon in itself. The whole behavior is bizarre, dark and extremely enigmatic, making those involved with hauling badly. Real elfin would say. The killer's costume – an early "Ghostface" with gaudy colours – is another highlight and differentiated from the beaten track that wants the killers in horror movies to choose obscure clothing. Here we have yellow chrwmataki shown by "km" but doesn't spoil us! The inspiration for this yellow waterproof appears that comes from the classic "Don't Look Now" (1973).
In all this there is the ntetektibiko element, the mystery and the killing that increase the interest. The end result is a tightly knit horror film that despite some rough scenario, it stays in memory for a long time. Morbid, profane and noisy "Alice Sweet Alice" invites us to experience a different terrifying experience from the usual ones.

Paranoid atmosphere, notable and wacky characters, sporadic but particularly shocking violence, intense interpretations, cleverly positioned mystery.
A few problems in the scenario, the existence of some extreme scenes in church that may bother some.
