Alice in Murderland

aliceinmurderland

By now, I think my love of Alice in Wonderland is pretty well documented so of course I couldn’t pass up this little gem of a film. Alice In Murderland has the potential for all around good time but doesn’t quite live up to the expectations set forth in the title.

It’s Alice’s 21st birthday and in celebration her sorority sisters plan a girls only party (along with someone’s gay uncle) with an Alice in Wonderland theme at the house where Alice’s mother was murdered 20 years ago.  How sweet!  Seriously, why aren’t my friends as thoughtful as these gals?  As the night goes on, people start getting murdered left and right and there’s a whole bunch of magic shrooms being inhaled.

I find this girl to be uber hot.

I find this girl to be uber hot.

So yeah, all the elements are there for a swell time.  We’ve got hot girls (okay some are hot, some are just eh), we’ve got sorority sisters.  We open strong with an axe murder.  We’ve got boys trying to sneak into the party and girls dating girls’ exes.  Plus we’ve got a serial killer that likes to dress up as the Jabberwocky (which is oddly reminiscent of the turkey in Thankskilling…).  How does it all manage to go wrong?

While the film starts off strong with solid acting and a cheesy but not too overly cheesy murder, it quickly starts to fall apart with the lack of plot (I know, I know, this isn’t a movie one watches for plot but it was that bad).  The story gets convoluted and characters keep jumping around in their characterizations (oh you’re the dumb girl?  Then how did you suddenly get so smart?)  Plus there’s the twist ending that doesn’t lend much to the story and doesn’t go where one expects it to go so that it falls flat.  And the actual final moments of the film are just lame.

Watch this one for the hot girl on girl cat fights and nothing else.

  1. Wow…that looks quite interesting.

  2. You had me at “girl-on-girl catfights”

  3. I think it’s hot that you think that girl is hot. 🙂

  4. Nice review. Unfortunately I’m not sure it is possible for a film to live up to the title ‘Alice in Murderland’.

    • Thanks, Beer Movie! I dunno though. This would have been more aptly titled “Alice and Sorority Sisters in an Abandoned House With Catfights” – completely different from “Alice in Murderland”. 😉

  5. LOL – this sounds pretty shitty. How was / were your show(s)??

  6. Geek Soul Brother

    Whew! Sounds like we’ve been warned. And what are these ‘shows’ that thou speaks of? Sounds intriguing.

  7. After reading ‘hot girl on girl cat fights’ i forgot what i was reading haha 😀

  8. Like a bunch of people have said, the catfights sound pretty cool, but I think that’s what Youtube is for. Too bad, it seems like it could have been done well.

    • It could’ve been well done with the title but not with the script. I think Youtube is more for music videos but you can probably find cat fights there. I haven’t actually Googled that term…I should do that. 😉

  9. This one sounds like perfect fodder for a drinking game.

And.........Action!
