Alice, Sweet Alice (1976) Review:

Alice, Sweet Alice is one of these numerous “masked killer” horror film from the ’70s (Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Town That Dreaded Sundown) but unlike the other movies cited, which could be associated with the slasher genre, this one is based on a convoluted crime story and a superb psychological tension that makes it more of a giallo than anything else.

Alice, the main character, could well be the oldest sister of Rhoda from The Bad Seed. Creepy kids are always scary, but it is here pushed to the extreme, Alice is really evil with her weird gaze and dirty teeth. Actually, Paula E. Sheppard, who played 12-year-old Alice, was 19 during the making of the film, making her look even more awkward.

More disturbing even is her mask, a transparent mask that keeps bringing confusion about the real identity of the killer. “Confusion” is probably not strong enough to describe the atmosphere of that film that is more like a rollercoaster that keeps bringing surprises after surprises right until the very end. Be prepared not to understand everything, because a lot is left unexplained, and you’ll spend quite some time thinking about it afterward.

Overall, this for me one of the best-masked killer films from the ’70s or at least one of the best written and more disturbing.
