Alyce Kills is a horror film from The Collective and Bloody Disgusting. And, yes, it is bloody disgusting - so disgusting and vile that I toyed with the notion of cutting it off early. The plot is very simple, with awkward nods to Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" sprinkled throughout. I can only assume that this device was used because the filmmakers thought that it was clever, and at times it works, but it would have been far more effective in a better horror film. As I said, the plot is very thin. It involves a young girl named Alyce who goes out one night with her best friend to party and get high. Her friend picks up some ecstasy at the club, and the two girls climb to the top of a building and start hallucinating. Alyce attempts to pull a prank on her friend, and accidentally pushes her off the top of the building. She takes a hard fall, but does not die. When Alyce is confronted by the police about the incident, she denies that she was involved. A few days later, the weight of the guilt becomes too much for Alyce, and she succumbs to a dark world of drugs and sex. She takes a dive into a nasty rabbit hole, and before you know it, she has lost her mind.
This is all a set-up for scenes involving necrophilia and an extremely long - and unapologetically gratuitous - scene of dismemberment. There is also a random scene where Alyce masturbates to news footage on the War in Iraq, which will leave many viewers scratching their heads. Gorehounds are the intended audience for this film, and yes, they will get a kick out of it, but at the end of the day, that's all that the film has to offer - gore. The film doesn't even work on a "so bad, it's good" level.
I didn't enjoy it at all. And that's sad, because this one could have been a lot of fun, not to mention that Jade Dornfeld is actually quite good as Alyce.
