Barbara Crampton in Alone With You
Iconic horror actress Barbara Crampton played plenty of terrifying roles in scary situations. In the indie horror film Alone With You, the story of being trapped inside an apartment with the supernatural hit too close to home with the production during the shutdown of pandemic and the practice of social distancing.
Here is the long synopsis of the film:
Charlie wants tonight to be perfect. After a tumultuous first year, she and Simone plan to spend a romantic anniversary night together in their Brooklyn apartment. But after a traumatic call with her estranged and homophobic mother, Charlie realizes she’s locked in her apartment and she’s not alone.
As the night progresses and Simone doesn’t return, Charlie slips in and out of memories as she fights to keep her grip on reality. But when a woman’s voice in the wall starts taunting Charlie, the darkness closes in. Charlie realizes her only hope is to cling to the truth or be swallowed up by the evil trying to overtake her and drive her completely mad.
The film also stars Emily Bennett, Emma Myles, and Dora Madison. Bennett co-directed and co-wrote the story with Justin Brooks.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta talked with actress Barbara Crampton about being in the indie horror realm with a film like this. We talked about the pandemic filming, in which she played her role entirely with herself as her own camerawoman, wardrobe outfitter, and makeup artist. Indeed, it was the most challenging job of her career.
Over three decades, she became a horror icon figure after making her screen debut with 1984’s Body Double. Her biggest fan-favorite role is when she played the leading role of Megan Halsey in the classic cult hit Re-Animator. Other classic horror films include From Beyond, the original Puppet Master, and the original Castle Freak—which all landed in many top horror film lists. Recently, she starred in the vampire film Jakob’s Wife and produced the remake of the classic Castle Freak. Other recent titles she was involved in also included King Knight, We Are Still Here, Little Sister, Sun Choke, and the home invasion film You’re Next.
Alone With You is in select theaters this Friday, February 4. It is available On Demand, digitally, and on DVD the following Tuesday, February 8.
