Short reviews of underrated slasher movies "He knows you are alone" (1980) and "The Clairvoyant" (1982)

genre: thriller, slasher, horror

These are quite unknown titles directed by Armand Mastroianni. And maybe they don't offer anything really new they did do what most contemporary movies nowadays lack. A good buildup of suspense with very minimal means. "He knows you are alone" is most famous for the debut of Tom Hanks. Which is a bit of a shame really because his role is very minimal to say the least. The movie itself has a few effective  scenes that are creepy. Maybe it can be seen as a copy of Halloween. Still what slasher movie made after Halloween isn't. 

"The Clairvoyant" (a.k.a. The Killing Hour) is the better of the two because it basically is a whodunnit and keeps you guessing till the end of who the killer might be. Complete with red herrings and style. Basically this is very much an American giallo. In my opinion these movies deserve far more attention than they did. 

BTW if you liked these films I can really recommend watching giallo's. Most of them are excellent whodunnits:
