Alice, Sweet Alice

Note: 7:00 show added!

1976 • dir Alfred Sole w/Paula E. Sheppard, Linda Miller, Niles McMaster, Jane Lowry, Alphonso DeNoble, Brooke Shields • 107 min • 35mm

This bizarre cult film about a series of murders committed in the community of a New Jersey Catholic church features an intense, raw performance from Paula E. Sheppard as the troubled Alice. Alice might be the killer, but even if she isn’t, she’s a real piece of work – a teenage hellion who toys with her creepy landlord, tortures his cats, hates her sister, enjoys wearing weird masks, and basically makes her mother’s life a nightmare. Director Alfred Sole had previously only directed a porno and he keeps it cheap and sleazy for this remarkable Psycho-inspired slasher. To top it off, the grotesque landlord is played by Alphonso DeNoble, a weirdly charismatic non-actor discovered while working as a bouncer at the local gay bar.
