He Knows You're Alone is a 1980 American horror film directed by Armand Mastroianni and written by Scott Parker. The movie is distributed by MGM/UA Entertainment Company, and it stars Don Scardino, Caitlin O'Heaney, and Elizabeth Kemp. The movie begins with a young bride-to-be, Amy Jensen (O'Heaney), who becomes the target of a stalker who is murdering all the women who are about to marry. Amy is so shaken up by this that her friends and family try to comfort her by telling her that it is all in her head. However, when her friend is found dead after being strangled and brutally murdered in her wedding gown, Amy starts to realize that her fears might be true.

Enter Marvin (Scardino), an ex-boyfriend of Amy's who also happens to be a police officer. Marvin comes into the picture to investigate the murders and protect Amy. As Marvin starts to connect the dots, he discovers that the killer is a man named Ray (Tom Rolfing), a former boyfriend of one of the victims. He is obsessed with the idea of stopping women from getting married, and he thinks that he can achieve this by murdering them.

Meanwhile, Amy decides to get married and goes through all the preparations for her wedding. However, things take a sinister turn when Ray sets his sights on her. As she tries to prepare for her big day, Ray starts to stalk her and gets dangerously close to killing her. With the help of Marvin, Amy tries to outsmart Ray and stay alive until her wedding day.

He Knows You're Alone is an excellent slasher movie that perfectly captures the mood of the early 80s. It is a classic example of a horror movie that is both scary and thrilling, and it manages to keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. The plot is well-written and engaging, and the characters are well-developed and relatable.

One of the things that set this movie apart from other slasher flicks of the time is the way the director played with suspense. Unlike other movies in the genre, He Knows You're Alone doesn't rely on gore and violence to keep viewers interested. Instead, the film uses smart camera angles and careful pacing to keep us guessing as to which character will be the next victim.

The performances by the actors are also noteworthy. Don Scardino delivers a strong performance as Marvin, the police officer who tries to protect Amy. He is convincing in his role, and his chemistry with Caitlin O'Heaney is palpable. O'Heaney, on the other hand, does an excellent job portraying Amy, a young woman who is trapped in her own fears. Her character is somewhat relatable and serves as an anchor for viewers who want someone to root for.

It is also worth mentioning the music score by composer Lance Rubin. The score adds an additional layer of tension to the movie, and it helps to build up the suspense in key scenes. The music sets the mood perfectly and makes the viewers' heart race faster as the action unfolds.

In conclusion, He Knows You're Alone is a great slasher movie that is unforgettable. It has a well-written plot, an excellent cast, and a music score that is worth listening to on its own. Even though it is a horror movie, it is not overly gory, making it perfect for those who don't want to watch anything too gruesome. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes horror movies or is looking for an excellent thriller to watch.

He Knows You're Alone is a 1980 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
