The knife used in the film was created by Alfred Sole's neighbor, who was an engineer, and was designed with a retractable blade. It was the only knife used in the film, the filmmakers never made any duplicates. See more »

[about Karen's funeral]
I heard everyone leave. It's all over, huh? Well, you die and they put you in the ground. Such a shame. Such a pretty girl too. Too bad she was the one to end up in the box.
My mother thought you could use some cake, fatty.

Thank your mother for me. Such a lovely lady. God always takes the pretty ones.

The UK cinema version was uncut but the 1998 Tartan video version was cut by 3 seconds to remove a brief shot of a squirming kitten being swung at an attacker (the edit was later extended to 8 secs for the 2003 release). These were considered to fall foul of UK legislation which forbids actual animal cruelty to be depicted in films. The cut was waived for the 2014 88 Films DVD release. See more »
Alice sweet Alice is a movie with a very eerie feel to it, which in part is due from the atmosphere and the low-budget. Though Brooke Shields gets top billing she's not in the film too long plus she's pre puberty so don't expect to see her prancing around like in 'Blue Lagoon'. This is a slasher flick with a little twist and a very strong catholic slant to it. The story is told pretty well and the main character(Alice) does a great job,looking up her bio it seems she didn't stick with acting. The landlord in the movie was one of the most disgusting, strange people i've seen on film. The killer's mask and raincoat was pretty scary and the film was effective in setting up a few suspenseful scenes. I would of graded this movie higher, but the dad and the cops annoyed me and there was a little overacting buy the mom and aunt. Good not great.
