Marie, a girl living alone, gets a new neighbour. The neighbour makes strange noises and hauls heavy sacks downstairs. One day he knocks on her door and asks her to keep a sack for a while. Mary opens it, and .
Chilling. Inexplicable and chilling. Beautifully photographed, darkly funny at moments, and really frightening. It maintained a powerful air of absurdity and unease.

Wonderfully weird stuff.
I was really surprised by how drawn into it I became. I wanted it to be longer. Deffiinitely worth watching if you have the In My Skin DVD around. I found this short to be far more enjoyable than the feature on the DVD. While in my skin is undeniably jarring, and effective as far that is concerned, Alias seems to me to be much more beautifully shot and assembled; a really remarkable short work.
