The movie starts out fairly slow, letting you get to know the two best friends Alyce (played by Jade Dornfeld) and Carroll (played by Tamara Feldman).

7.5. Original and intriguing!

This indy chiller starts out slow enough to make you want to leave...

Alyce resolves to take charge of her own life, but her brand of self-assertive, feminist "empowerment" is to embark upon a self-indulgent journey of risky behavior.

Too slow of a build up for 15 minutes of good fun.

Pointless .

The latest trend has dark-psyched vixens engaging in just plain psychopathic killing sprees.

Everything is the background is muted and THAT really took me out of it because it was obvious they wanted you to focus on the banal dialogue.

In this pointless, yet engaging psycho-thriller, a young woman spirals into anti-social behavior, dragging her acquaintances into the dark morass of her twisted psyche.

Pointless, Disgusting Piece of Garbage .

This was a pointless, trivial pursuit into the depths of boredom, disgust and degradation.

People might be more impressed with the first 3/4's of the film, but I rather enjoyed it when she gave in to the murderous impulses, as weak as they were.

There was no real plot, no character development, and no reason to depict all of this nastiness.

Later, they arrive at Alyce's place and consider making out (sorry guys, that went nowhere).

The acting in this movie is very well done and the atmosphere is very dark and heavy but very enjoyable on a bizarre and at times disturbing level.

Sadly by being a slow starter and dropping a bit down in the middle of the flick I can't say that I recommend it to the gorehounds.

What happens when an otherwise normal, possibly even boring and plain, girl lose her marbles and go crazy?

Drearily little film that becomes as schizophrenic in its pacing as the titular character does as the film drudges on to its insane yet somehow inevitable conclusion (the last 15 minutes or so are the only thing that I found marginally entertaining about this mess of a film) Trying way to hard to shoe-horn elements of "Alice in Wonderland" into a gritty tale of Alyse accidentally throwing her friend, Carol, off a high-rise apartment complex and then spiraling downward herself (figuratively) is daft as it is boring.

Alyce is a late 20s something woman, she has a mundane job she hates and the only thing she looks forward to is spending time with her only friend Carroll, who jokingly refers to Alyce as 'single white female' material.

Slow start to a brutal climax.
