One of the earlier followers of Halloween was this solid slasher, that certainly took its share of inspiration from Carpenter's masterpiece.
In Staton Island, NY a murderer is targeting brides-to-be. Will lovely Amy who's set to be married in just weeks become the killer's next victim?
He Knows You're Alone is an enjoyable slasher with a game cast (most notably the always charismatic Scardino). Of course this film is mostly remember as the acting debut of the wonderful Tom Hanks, who was said to have been so likable that the script was changed as to not have his character killed off.
Hanks aside, this film does have it's share of entertainment. The opening theater scene (which would later inspire the opening of Scream 2) is still one of the most gripping introductions for any slasher film. The stalking sequences are suspenseful, especially the climactic chase through the basement of the morgue. A nicely creepy atmosphere runs throughout the film too. Yet, unlike some slasher flicks this one is light on gore.
All in all, He Knows You're Alone is a good entry from the slasher heyday that genre fans should enjoy.
** 1/2 out of ****
