This horror/thriller sets up as a symbol/metaphor for "Alice in Wonderland." There are numerous hints to connect the two within the film including the song, "White Rabbit" which we hear early in the film. This was originally released in 2011 with the title of "Alyce." The addition of the word "Kills" detracts from the metaphor, most likely done by a marketing firm more interested in sales than dark art.
Alyce (Jade Dornfeld) has work and rent issues. She opts to go party with her best friend Carroll, as in Lewis Carroll (Tamara Feldman). They are very similar...like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Alyce is clearly the follower of the two as she was known as SWF. Their desire to party and do drugs escalates until the point of no return.
Alyce descends further into the world of drugs and madness. At one point she swaps sex for ecstasy with a man who is symbolically the Mad Hatter. Then the film goes over the top as the thriller turns into horror.
This was an interesting film. At times the madness is shown as a weave of scenes of the present and future. The acting was especially good for a "B" film, although there were some scenes where I thought they could have done better on the dialogue. Worth a view for those who like their slasher films with less slash and more character.
