The director Eric Nicholas creates a creepy atmosphere throughout this film about obsession with a very original directing film style. The audience is immersed into the role of an observer watching a very convincing Ana Claudia Talancón as a young women living alone in a small apartment who is being stalked by a very disturbed Collin Hanks. The acting is solid and the film keeps a sustained tension throughout. Also not to overlook the script written by Eric Nicholas which is well structured for this kind of film and delivers a surprising, haunting ending.

One of the most terrifying things about ALONE WITH HER is that the stalker on the beautiful young women is barely seen or heard until more than half of the 90 minutes movie giving us the feeling that the real stalkers are us.
Yes, the first person narrative (mostly on the first half of the movie) positions us fully inside and not really so uncomfortable.
Don't you think that in a generation growing with BIG BROTHER, THE APPRENTICE, SURVIVOR and many more reality shows the voyeurism has become something a little more usual than it should ?. . How many "normal" people will go as far as Collins Hanks goes in this movie is a really the frightening question.
This is a movie based on pace and events. There is not much to explain about it. Let's just say that as the obsession grows events and situations get darker but never unrealistic. You can think of it as an obsessive love story where you get a lot of sympathy for the main characters and with no real chances of a happy ending.
See it; you won't regret it; but please complain as much as you can on why this independent movie never got a proper wide release while so much garbage did it.

This film is a work of art, it is that simple. It is completely original and crossed many lines that a standard Hollywood film would never cross.
It is so disturbing and unsettling to watch, and the way the film is present through the eyes of the stalker is fascinating. I think its ridiculous that this film isn't being noticed, it is unbelievable.
I had to pause this movie 5 times because I felt so uncomfortable watching it. I highly recommend this movie.
I hope everyone gets a chance to see this, it shows horror in a way I have never seen. If someone knows a movie more creepy and strangely realistic like this one, let me know.

An incredibly well crafted and realistic cautionary tale, this movie left me very disturbed. There are a lot of guys out there like the Colin Hanks character and to see this story creepily play out through hidden cameras really gave me the chills! It makes you realize that anybody could be out there watching you right now, especially with all the technology available! The movie slowly lets you discover the character of Doug (Colin Hanks) but not directly and as the film goes on you begin to realize just how sick he really is. The acting was amazing by everyone in the movie which speaks a lot to the director because even in big Hollywood movies you will see uneven performances. I think this is a very original and eye opening film and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

...and entirely too believable. But then, that is what makes good film noir.
There is absolutely nothing in this movie that doesn't contribute to it, from the shot via hidden cam approach, to the acting, the lighting, the casting and the score. This is simply a BRILLIANT movie.
Ten minutes into the film, I found myself repelled, yet fascinated, like a mouse before a cobra. By the time it was over, I felt like I needed a shower.
Ana Claudia Talancón (who is remarkably easy on the eyes) played her role superbly, and Colin Hanks turned in what SHOULD be an award-winning job as "Doug", the stalker. It's a shame that the little movies like this so often get overlooked.
