-->''"Alice thought to herself 'Now you will see a film... made for children... perhaps... ' But, I nearly forgot... you must... close your eyes... otherwise... you won't see anything. "''

A film made by Czech stop-motion animator Creator/JanSvankmajer in 1988, called ''Alice'' outside of the Czech Republic. This surrealist adaptation of Creator/LewisCarroll's ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' is remarkably faithful to the original work, condensing most of the dialogue but painstakingly preserving much of the plot. Where it really deviates is in the strange appearance of the Wonderland creatures and in the dreary atmosphere it evokes. Švankmajer's Wonderland is populated by speaking skeletons, sawdust-filled animals, and animated objects. The film is devoid of music, and all creatures are voiced by Alice herself, in jarring cutaway closeups of her mouth as she narrates their lines, and her adventure seems to entirely take place inside of an impossible, poorly-lit and labyrinthian house.

Though well-received by critics, it is not a popular version of the story. This may have something to do with a saturation of both grimmificationed and disneyfied Alice adaptations, despite it not quite falling into either category.

!!''Alice'' contains examples of:
* AllJustADream
* ButtMonkey: Alice tends to get beat up quite a lot by the creatures, not to mention being set on fire at least once.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The designs are more macabre, UncannyValley is often invoked, and the White Rabbit is now the royal executioner.
* DerangedAnimation.
* DownTheRabbitHole: ''Alice'' is a most [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs deranged and incomprehensible]] adaptation of ''Alice in Wonderland'', with its stop-motion animation and mostly silent script.
* EverythingIsTryingToKillYou: Various things (puppets, stuffed animals, animal skeletons and even socks) are trying to catch Alice.
* FollowTheWhiteRabbit
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Unlike most of her adaptations, this Queen of Hearts actually beheads her subjects.
* HairRaisingHare: The White Rabbit is a stuffed animal that literally comes alive. Near the end of the film it turns out he is the Queen's executioner.
