Alyce in LaLaLand
on May 26, 2013
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.
