Survival is uncertain…
"All Alone" is a busy little thriller. You can tell right from the start that there's tension between the two men but it isn't until they make it into the woods that secrets are revealed. I don't want to dive into what happens in the film here because this is one of those movies that the less you know about the story the better and the synopsis above offers plenty to go by before seeing it because on the surface the story is pretty simple. I can tell you that there's always something happening once things get going. There are plenty of lies, deceit and twists and turns in the story to keep you engaged and at the edge of your seat the entire time. Just when it looks like the story has peaked another wrinkle is added to keep things interesting.
The cast's five main leads which includes, Mandy Levin, Suzy Cote, Brice Williams, David Haydn-Jones and Beth Navarro all give great performances and each character has their own background so it's very easy to have feelings towards them one way or the other. To call this thriller tense is an understatement, the tension is so thick you would need a knife to cut through it. Also to go along with the tension there is also a good amount of mystery, suspense and a nice bit of action as well to keep the film entertaining all the way to it''s satisfying and realistic ending.
I can go into deep details about the story here but like I said before that would only ruin the film so I am going to keep this review short and just say that "All Alone" is a temperature raising thriller filled with more twists than 10 Hollywood thrillers, plus it's location is perfect for just the right sense of isolation. If you like a good thriller then I highly recommend checking this one out when it comes to DVD on June 12th. Writer/Director, Jon Cellini has created a thriller that delivers. A very impressive debut for him, he really has an eye for the genre and I cannot wait to see what he comes up with next.
