Just watched this on demand and really enjoyed it.It was different from most of the horror films coming out as of late.In a good way.Alyce played by Jade Dornfeld is quite the interesting character and I couldn't take my eyes off of her.Her eyes were unreadable which in itself is frightening because you never know if she's going to pet or bite you.

I never really figured out her true motives for doing everything that she did but that's ok because it was so much fun tagging along with her on her journey.
Her relationship with Carroll played by Tamara Feldman was at first playful and almost like she was in love with her then Alyce & Carroll get high on X and Alyce pushes Carroll off the roof of her apartment building leaving Carroll very jacked up to say the least,the make up was great.After the accident Alyce goes into a drug induced stupor and loses it.She does some really strange and unthinkable things and we meet some very interesting characters.

The film has surrealism in it but not so much that you don't know what's going on and the last 25 minutes is a blood soaked gore fest that isn't gratuitous but every bit is needed to get the point across. Jade Dornfeld is amazingly talented and makes an already great film even greater.I was pleasantly surprised and so glad I took a chance on Alyce.

This horror/thriller sets up as a symbol/metaphor for "Alice in Wonderland." There are numerous hints to connect the two within the film including the song, "White Rabbit" which we hear early in the film. This was originally released in 2011 with the title of "Alyce." The addition of the word "Kills" detracts from the metaphor, most likely done by a marketing firm more interested in sales than dark art.

Alyce (Jade Dornfeld) has work and rent issues. She opts to go party with her best friend Carroll, as in Lewis Carroll (Tamara Feldman). They are very similar...like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Alyce is clearly the follower of the two as she was known as SWF. Their desire to party and do drugs escalates until the point of no return.

Alyce descends further into the world of drugs and madness. At one point she swaps sex for ecstasy with a man who is symbolically the Mad Hatter. Then the film goes over the top as the thriller turns into horror.

This was an interesting film. At times the madness is shown as a weave of scenes of the present and future. The acting was especially good for a "B" film, although there were some scenes where I thought they could have done better on the dialogue. Worth a view for those who like their slasher films with less slash and more character.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Jade Dornfeld)

Alyce Kills is well done sexy and violent. Jade Dornfeld is terrific in her role of girl going crazy or maybe she already was all along. The film has three distinct sections and the look and feel changes from fun to tragedy to all out F'd up gore. One of my new favorites..

Wow! Let it be known... I was totally blown away by this mostly unknown indie film! The writing is far superior than what is being produced in Hollywood, the acting is so strong that you are drawn into the disintegrating world of Alyce immediately, becoming a voyeuristic bystander, and the colorful characters are more than three-dimensional in every respect! Alyce as portrayed by Jade Dornfeld, is superb and gives an academy award performance, due to the fact that the script is so tight and intense! The character RX (Rex) was so unnerving, that I actually wondered if the director/writer Jay Lee scoured State penitentiaries and urban skid rows, just to find an actual sleazy drug dealer with tremendous acting skills (is that even possible?)!OK. No more fluff! This movie kicks ass! It is actually a social-horror movie unlike anything you have seen. There is gore, but it is not present until Alyce teeters over the edge of sanity. This is an important film, and Jay Lee could easily become another Sam Raimi. Watch for him in the future. In the meantime, go out and buy this amazing movie! It may just change your outlook on life...forever!

Meet Alyce, a young beauty with some troubling issues! I really didn't know what to expect so I had no pre-conceived notions about "Alyce", I dove in blindly. To my delight I was pleasantly surprised with how good a film this really was. The acting and production was good and Jade Dornfeld did a great job playing Alyce.

After a night of heavy partying with her best friend, Alyce accidentally pushes her off the roof of her apartment complex. Thinking she's dead, Alyce lies to the police about what happened only to find out that her friend is still alive but in critical condition. As Alyce tries to figure out what to do next, her life begins to unravel as she spins out of control in a drug induced spiral. Her plan to fix things though is simple enough, murder and the best way to dispose of dead bodies.

As I stated earlier, Jade Dornfeld did an excellent job playing Alyce, the "single white female" stalker she was referred to as in the film. She really had some major issues and I'm not to sure if she did push her best friend off the roof accidentally. She seemed fragile, innocent, truthful, dark, vengeful, crazy, and psycho all rolled into one amazing character you couldn't take your eyes off of. In the end "Alyce" turned out to be a gory type of revenge film in which the main character was obsessed with finding the best way to dispose of a dead body.

The only thing I disliked was how it ended which seems to be a growing issue for me as of late. The gore and body dismemberment were excellent and the way she tries to get rid of the remains is classic! Jade Dornfeld again is one hell of an actor and has made a new fan out of me, again Bloody-Disgusting Selects has picked up a nice little gem of a film with "Alyce" and I would say is their top selection right along with "Cold Fish (Bloody Disgusting Selects)". I recommend you do yourself a solid and watch this film, its a damn good one.

This is the story of two pretty young brunette girls, addicted to drugs, boys (?) and pleasure in general, one of whom accidentally kills the other by nudging her off a roof (insert spoiler alert)...oh, wait, she only THINKS she killed her bf - and the meat of the plot follows from that. Jade Dornfeld looks hot in the lead role, i.e, not your classic beauty, but good-looking enough to set up the contrast demanded of the film's premise of seemingly random butchery committed by a "pretty girl" type. I found her murder of the ex-boyfriend especially compelling (well, cinematically speaking, anyway) because the director chose to have her looking very pretty and feminine (nice white bathrobe, etc.) when she "offed" him - plus the deliberately soft, gentle tones with which she spoke to him just before...(o.k., enough spoilers!) . Contrast works in pictures like this, and Mr. Lee nailed it with this scene. Recommended, with the advisory that the above-mentioned scene is a bit graphic - but not too much if you're into this sort of thing.

Where do I start here....
Alyce is a girl who took a break from the party scene for a year and stayed in her dead end job with a bitch of a boss and kept to herself while her best friend partied it up. A night out on the town and an accidental fall over a building leads Alyce on an insane bender killing those around her.
While pretty gory this movie did nothing for me at all. I found it hard to see and tell what was going on in some places and in others I wish I couldn't have told what was going on. While the acting was decent the script was silly and did not make much sense. With the exception of the final scene while comical worked the rest was just so so. I would not recommend at all.

Sick and Twisted. Loved it. A descent into madness on a runaway train. One of the better indie horror movies with a art house feel.
