    Synopsis


    Dressed to Kill
    One of Brian De Palma's most divisive films, Dressed to Kill is a spine-chilling Alfred Hitchcock update for the late 1970s. Sexually frustrated wife and mother Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson) visits her New York psychiatrist, Dr. Elliott (Michael Caine), to complain about her unfulfilling erotic life. When she then goes to meet her husband at a museum, she meets an anonymous man whom she follows out to a cab. After an afternoon of satisfying sex, Kate discovers that the man has a venereal disease, but that information becomes a moot point when a razor-wielding blonde woman slashes Kate to ribbons in the elevator of the man's building. Blonde prostitute Liz (Nancy Allen), who caught a glimpse of the murderer, becomes both the prime suspect and the killer's next target. With the police less than willing to believe her story, Liz joins forces with Kate's son Peter (Keith Gordon) to get the psychopath themselves. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

      Michael Cane surprises me. I purchased this movie on a whim while at vestbuy after viewing individual (never overall) reviews on "IMBD" and seeing the movie on eBay. Bestbuy had it on a sale from 20$ to a 6.99 sale price. I had no idea michael cain was in The film. I also did not predict the ending. Good movie for its time. We get to see another side to Bruce Wayne's man servant before he was under the employment of Bruce wayne. Glad I picked it up for the limited time it was at vestbuy and with such a great price!

      In a thriller like dressed to kill you get horror and scary without a lot of gore. In this blu-ray you get the special edition with lots of great special features and you get two versions of the film the R rated and the unrated. One gives you almost no blood or gore and the other one gives you more so if you like thriller then you will love this one.

      This Hitchcockian Thriller is a very good showcase of DePalma’s talents. Though this film has been characterized as derivative it is no less a very taught psychological tale featuring wonderful performances from Michael Caine ( as the psychiatrist)and Karen Allen (as a call girl). Angie Dickinson is also seen in a brief but important roll in the beginning which sets the story into motion.

      Modernized film noir with psychotic and psychopathic twists and sultry enhancements to entice and intrigue its audience. Whether the more mature Angie Dickenson seeking out her deprived desires or the younger more vital Nancy Allen seeking out and using hers to solve the mystery deaths and exonerate herself, this psychological suspense driven yarn will satisfy your deeper inner urges and curious cravings!

      This steamy bloody thriller has every aspect of cinematography. Erotic edge of your seat who done it. Michael Caine master of his craft, exhibit a superb and wicked performance. Not to be outdone Angie Dickinson was sensual and seriously steamy, with suspense abound.

      The plot was interesting and well done by the actors. I believe Angie Dickinson finished the Police Woman series on TV (74-78). The 1980 movie has a steamy shower scene with Angie Dickinson where nothing is left to the imagination... This is one of Brian De Palma's classic award winning movies.

      Before fatal attraction or Basic Instinct there was this Brian Depalma classic. Filled with suspense at the time it was a thriller. However by today's movie standards, the plot is easy to detect.

      It had been years since I saw this movie, so bought it and watched again. Yes, it is a classic. But watching some of the actors who were popular at the time...sigh...
