Alone in the Dark

Alone in the Dark ★★★★

"Anything can happen... when you're Alone in the Dark!"

A home-under-attack-from-escaped-'disturbed'-patients-from-the-local-asylum-horror (that's a subgenre, right?) with a wild poster, heaps of goopy kills, a jarringly good score and starring performances from the brilliant Jack Palance, the brilliant Donald Pleasence and the brilliant Martin Landau.

Early 80s horror doesn't get much better than this my friends.

As an added bonus, we also get to see The Wanderers' Terror Erland van Lidth in one of only a few films before his early passing at only 34, just a few months after finishing work on Arnie's The Running Man.
