If you survive this night... nothing will scare you again.
Alice is a withdrawn 12 year old who lives with her mother and her younger sister, Karen, who gets most of the attention from her mother, leaving Alice out of the spotlight. But when Karen is found brutally murdered in a church, suspicions start to turn towards Alice. But could a twelve year old girl really be capable of such savagery?

Alice is a disturbed young girl who, like all older siblings, enjoys torturing her younger sister, her neighbours, her aunt, and anyone else who gets in her way. But when Alice's younger sister winds up dead before her first holy communion, will she take the fall - or is it someone else's doing? The mystery grows deeper as her nagging aunt is butchered in the apartment staircase, Alice's father winds up dead, and their apartment landlord is stabbed through the heart, and Alice's psychological assessment comes up with some startling answers. The film is intriguing and suspenseful, and, as a plus, Brook Shields dies within the first 20 minutes (she couldn't act then and she can't act now). The only problem is the mystery is revealed half and hour before the film's conclusion, but director Alfred Sole manages to keep the suspense going even after the startling revelation.
