The movie called "He Knows You're Alone" may be a Halloween ripoff, but it is a great slasher-horror flick anyway, so I just love it!!!! I highly recommend this movie to horror movie fans, especially slasher film lovers. Unfortunately, this movie has been unfairly criticized as a complete Halloween ripoff and therefore not worth watching. While it may be true that this movie does borrow extensively from the immortal classic "Halloween", this movie is still very effective in that way and very successful on its own merits as well.

Sure, the movie is a "Halloween" ripoff, but why not ripoff the greatest horror movie of all-time and tweak the plot with different variations and a different situation? Then what do you get? A very scary and successful slasher film which is very Halloweenesque yet has a character all its own. First of all, I love John Carpenter's Halloween, so anything resembling that first movie, I have an affection for, so keep that in mind when reading my reviews.

In this movie, the plot is laid out for the audience rather quickly and violently. A young girl about to get married is murdered in the beginning of the film by a creepy, mysterious and very angry man, who incidentally never speaks throughout the entire film. The audience comes to find out that this particular man is a very dangerous serial killer who HATES "brides to be" and in the killer's very sick mind, he has a reason for hating these brides.

The audience is then introduced to the main character, a girl named Amy played by Caitlin O'Heaney who is about to have a wedding, and well, "Ray" or "He Knows You're Alone Man" finds out about it and he is not pleased...he becomes very angry about it.

Every girl is frightened the night before her wedding, but this time...there's good reason! That's the fairly tame tagline for He Knows You're Alone (1980) aka Blood Wedding, a fairly generic post Halloween (1978) slasher film that most notable probably because it was the first film Tom Hanks ever appeared in...

Directed by Armand Mastroianni, who went on to direct mainly episodes of television series like Friday the 13th: The Series and War of the Worlds: The Second invasion, the film stars Caitlan O'Heaney, whom I most remember from the early 80's TV show Tales of the Gold Monkey. Also appearing are Don Scardino (Squirm), James Rebhorn (Meet the Parents, Independence Day), Paul Gleason (Trading Places, The Breakfast Club, Die Hard), and, of course, Tom Hanks in a minor bit parts encompassing all of about 5 minutes of screen time.

Okay, so here's the basic plot...Amy (O'Heaney) is about to be married. Along with the usual problems, dress fittings, flower arrangements, etc., she's been noticing a mysterious figure everywhere she goes. Turns out a killer is on the loose, and he seems to have a thing for brides to be...also, it seems the killer is somewhat known by the local police, as he's struck before, but had stopped for awhile, confounding the efforts of law enforcement to capture him...but now has returned and is up to his old ways again. One detective in particular has a personal interest in seeing the serial killer stopped. Anyway, Amy continues to be stalked, yet those around here think her sightings are due to nervousness of her impending nuptials, and don't take her seriously. The killer not only stalks Amy, but begins finding victims in Amy's friends and those associated with the wedding in general (pity the poor tailor...).

Plot: A young woman about to be married is getting cold feet, partially due to the persistence of an exboyfriend who is still interested in her. Soon, however, other fears begin to take over her as she suspects she is being stalked.

This is an 80's slasher film not very different from other movies of the time; it features young girls being stalked and murdered. If I had to compare it to other better-known films it's more similar to Halloween (which has a smaller body count and relies more on suspense to make viewers scared than gore) than it is Friday the 13th (which is shocking more due to the large amounts of gory deaths). I wouldn't recommend this movie to people interested in more modern, ultra blood and explicit horror movies He Know's You're Alone does not have much to stand out above the rest, but fans of this genre will at the very least have a good time watching

. The acting is ok, with only a few moments where I didn't find it believable. It even has a few moments where I felt genuine suspense. At the same time it also have a problems. The climax isn't the most . . . climactic, and was one of the less-suspenseful parts of the movie. It also lacked music that would have aided in the suspense, and often, even during the climax, it was just silent.

In addition, this is a quality DVD, with good picture and sound quality compared to other budget titles. It has the usual features: language selections and trailer, but also includes director and writer commentary, which is rare for a cheaper DVD.
