‘You Are Not Alone’ – Review

‘You Are Not Alone’ – Review

By Lynn Sorel

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

Synopsis: Natalie is a college graduate visiting her hometown over the 4th of July. The night she arrives, she is stalked by a sociopathic killer. 

 

Our Thoughts: ‘You Are Not Alone’ is a truly unique horror film. Using first person POV to tell the story, you are seeing the story from the point of view of the final girl for the first time in horror.  

 

Natalie comes home for the 4th of July weekend and is having fun with her friends. Meanwhile, the story of a killer on the loose is all over the news. The first half is a bit of a slow burn, but enjoyable none-the-less, as thee characters are developed.

 

Following the fireworks and holiday party, a creepy stranger appears outside her house. The film becomes downright terrifying as the masked man breaks into her house and attacks her. He pursues her as she flees for her life, killing anyone who gets in the way. The end is satisfying and takes you by surprise.

 

Krista Dzialoszynski  is excellent as the horrified Natalie, although you only hear her in the film.  Drawing inspiration from old school slashers like ‘Halloween’, the first person POV makes for an exceptionally creepy atmosphere. The soundtrack is haunting and incredibly effective in building tension. ‘You Are Not Alone’ is original and fun, that you won’t soon forget.
