I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again. Basically, it was some kind of homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s work, and even though Hitchcock himself was apparently not impressed, I think it was pretty neat. I especially loved the first act focusing on Angie Dickison and, in my opinion, it was some of the best work delivered by Brian De Pal... read more

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"An elegant fusion of giallo tropes, grindhouse transgression, and art-house cool, Dressed to Kill is a checklist of the auteurist trademarks that earn Brian De Palma constant comparisons to Alfred Hitchcock. Chock-full of Hitchcockian fetishes like doubles, blondes, and voyeurism, it plays like Psycho dialed up to 11 for a post-Hays Code audience—relentlessly violent and casually provocative. The lurid story, in which a sexually frustrated housewife, creepy psychiatrist, and beleaguered call g"

Fall Horrorfest 2018 (40 movies items)

" Watched October 11th Rating: I don't think I could give this a good rating simply for the very 80's point of view of transgender people and the unfortunate "man in a dress" villain concept.

Angie Dickinson's character was the most interesting of the lot, several of the rest felt like spoof characters- maybe it simply doesn't age we"
