The real let down? Is that the embossed cover actually got me excited to watch the movie, and the movie was just plain ordinary. I suppose ghosts in a brothel should have clued me in to knowing that this was just an excuse to sell a movie based on sex with the supernatural throw in to prevent it from being labeled softcore porn. Still Horror in a brothel has been done successfully. I adore Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood which is a rather divisive movie, but still set the bar way higher than The Haunting of Alice D. could hope to achieve.. This isn’t even close.
This one is available on DVD now, and I’m afraid I can’t recommend it to anyone unless you’d want to try to find some humor in it. It’s just not bad enough to make you laugh. It even fails to deliver poorly written dialogue that could produce suitable one liners.

Written and directed by Jessica Sonneborn (Lure), the film stars Juan Riedinger (Narcos), Aaron Massey (Refuge from Storm), Megan Hensley (The Crazies), Al Snow (The Witches of Oz), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood) and Kristina Page (Penny Dreadful).

In the late 1890s, Davenport House was a famously successful brothel, ruled with an iron fist by an owner notorious for his cruelty and insatiable greed. Virtually imprisoned inside these walls, young Alice was forced to endure years of brutality and sexual slavery – until she took murderous revenge on her captors and tragically ended her own life. More than a century later, the latest Davenport heir is hosting a decadent bash in the newly renovated mansion – complete with drugs, prostitutes and just one rule: anything goes. But the “fun” has barely begun when strange, terrifying things begin to happen. Suddenly, the legend of Alice’s tormented ghost proves to be very real as the guests discover firsthand that vengeance never rests in peace!
THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D is produced by Kristina Page, Christopher Maltauro (Bloody Bloody Bible Camp) and Josh Hammond (Jeepers Creepers 2).
