Sleazeball Joe (Juan Riedinger) organizes a party for his best friends
Michael (Aaron Massey) and Adam (Michael Reed) and invites three hookers
(Megan Hensley, Jessica Sonneborn, Julianne Tura) over for entertainment,
too. But then Joe's archenemy (but fiancée of his best friend) Krista
(Eliza Swenson) shows up to tell the girls a scary story, just to get them
in the mood: Joe's house has been in the family for over a century and was
originally a whorehouse where Joe's ancestor "Judge" Davenport
(Kane Hodder) forced women into prostitution, including young Alice
(Kristina Page), who quickly became his favourite whore because she showed
defiance to the last - the last being when she actually killed Judge
Davenport, then committed suicide.
Not really a good way to get a party
started, but the girls are professionals ... all but Jenny (Megan
Hensley), who's actually not a prostitute but needed the extra cash, and
quickly, too. And that appeals to Michael, who's really not into banging
hookers and who didn't even know there'd be any at the party until things
have gotten started. Not knowing that, Jenny at first detests him just
like the others, but he kind of saves her from being raped by Joe, and
gradually the two of them bond.
Thing is, Jenny's fate is not totally
unlike Alice's, and somehow that seems to bring the spirit of her back,
wreaking havok among those at the party, first by scaring everyone
shitless, then letting Joe see her in one of the prostitutes (Julianne
Tura) and inducing him to kill her - and the party goes downhill from
there ... on a bloody slope!
Al Snow plays chief Davenport's henchman,
Sarah Nicklin Alice's sister.
The Haunting of Alice D is
a really nice little ghost story that manages to manages to marry its
sleazy backdrop to a feminist message and still come across sexy at all
the right moments, that takes time to build up its story and characters
before hammering home the shocks with quite a bit of panache, and that's
really high on atmosphere, thanks to an elegant directorial effort and
camerawork, and also a simply great location and art direction. And add to
that a very solid ensemble cast, and you've got yourself a pretty good
