    88 Films Releasing Alice, Sweet Alice In 2014

    No firm date yet but there is cover art.

    Confirmed so far is 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen transfer, audio commentary by Director Alfred Sole, Reversible Sleeve with original poster art and Booklet by Calum Waddell.

    Would prefer this on Blu-ray but this still might be worth getting. It's a good movie.

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    It's a terrific horror film, some genuinely disturbing murder sequences but it deserves a blu release. I'll be giving this a wide berth based on the author of the booklet notes. That cover is awful too.

    I second everything Andrew says. It's a very good film. The setpieces are enormously effective. I'm disappointed there's not a Blu scheduled. I never bought this one on DVD for whatever reason (not a good enough domestic release; the US import was too pricey), but I could definitely be persuaded to pick this up if anyone ever decides to release it in HD.

    I see 88 Films also have TOURIST TRAP lined up for a Blu-ray release in 2014. Has this been released on Blu in the US yet?

    As I would since I already have the Hen's Tooth release from 2007 on DVD wich is an ok DVD for me. But if someone doesn't have it already it sure worth a try.

    But I'll sure pre-order that one release day. It will be release on blu in december by Full Moon, but as usual I'm sure the 88 Films version will be the better one.

    When ten-year-old Karen (Brooke Shields – in her first screen appearance) is killed in church on the occasion of her first communion, her seemingly innocent older sister Alice (Paula Sheppard) becomes the prime suspect. Matters become complicated as more of Alice’s family members are attacked, along with residents of her apartment building. Can a twelve-year-old girl be capable of such mayhem, or is someone else with a vicious plan destroying her family?

    Starring: LINDA MILLER, PAULA SHEPPARD, MILDRED CLINTON, TOM SIGNORELLI and introducing BROOKE SHIELDS

    Directed by: ALFRED SOLE

    Last time I watched this I was surprised at how pessimistic and angry it is; almost every character is either mean or depressed and there's so much bickering that it becomes rather exhausting, actually. It put me in a terrible mood. I'm not sure I'd ever watch it again, even though I admire it and it's very well-made.
