With a traumatic event in her recent past, Alena transfers to a posh private all-girls school where her decidedly lower class roots makes her an outsider. While a gang of mean rich girls are determined to make Alena’s life a living hell, she is mysteriously defended by a shadowy and jealous, yet beautiful guardian angel. Based on Kim W. Andersson’s internationally acclaimed graphic novel, ALENA is a psychological thriller that combines the revenge themes of Carrie with the tough love of Let the Right One In.

“A horror-tinged tale of teenage bullying and payback. ALENA is a polished and entertaining hunk of teen angst.”Variety

“The preppiness of the film is overbearing and that’s why the hair-raising scenes work: you just don’t expect a nerdy teenage girl in a school uniform to assault her classmate in the shower.”VICE
