Angie Dickinson NUDE! Then it gets a bit weird and boring and I start to go to sleep. Good in early venture to the world of erotic thriller. Michael Caine is just unbelievable!

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was really eager to check it out again.

Brian De Palma ascended to the highest ranks of American suspense filmmaking with this virtuoso, explicit erotic thriller. At once tongue in cheek and scary as hell, Dressed to Kill revolves around the grisly murder of a woman in Manhattan and how her psychiatrist, her brainiac teenage son, and the prostitute who witnessed the crime try to piece together what happened while the killer remains at large. With its masterfully executed scenes of horror, voluptuous camera work, and passionate score, Dressed to Kill is a veritable symphony of terror, enhanced by vivid performances by Angie Dickinson, Michael Caine, and Nancy Allen.

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. Even putting that aside, though, it was not especially gripping. The homage to Psycho was well and good, but the movie seemed to slump more and more as it went on. 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"
