The Quintessential Slasher
25 January 2005 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a great horror film. If you're looking for a Carpenter's Halloween-type movie, I can't see how anyone could suggest that He Knows You're Alone doesn't deliver the scares. I watched this time and time again when I was about eleven years old, and now after a zillion horror flicks later it is one of the few that can still induce that feeling of fear in me . . . somehow. The soundtrack, though Halloweenesque, is effectively creepy, and the killer has this realistic crazed look about him. In fact, he's more believable, say, in contrast to the supernatural element of Michael Myers -- if ever a killer was stalking you for real, there's a good chance this would be, indeed, how he'd look. There's a chilling decapitation where the victim's head is found in a fish tank. The assumed gore/unseen violence works well in building shivery viewer imagination, which is probably the main reason it's just so darn scary overall. It's finally good to have a DVD release of this early-on '80s slasher.
