‘You Are Not Alone’ is the One Film You Should Watch This 4th of July

You Are Not Alone

There are a handful of seriously patriotic genre films out there, but very few place such emphasis on the holiday as Derek Mungor’s You Are Not Alone.

Independence Day plays a major role in the film, as it serves as a constant back drop to a sublime home invasion flick. Independence is also relevant in the sense that the picture’s protagonist is ultimately left to fend for herself. The independent theme clearly is utilized in a linking sense – it could almost be considered duality given the heroine’s plight and the evening in which she loses her life – and it works quite well.

This, for the record, isn’t your typical home invasion or found footage film, though it does incorporate heavy aspects of each sub-genre. The cinematography is often times mystifying and the small-town vibe captured in the film feels extremely organic.

If you’re really looking to catch a high-quality horror film this July 4th, then check out You Are Not Alone.

Here’s the synopsis, by the way:

Natalie is a college graduate visiting her hometown over the 4th of July. The night she arrives, she is stalked by a sociopathic killer.
