For anyone who thought Hitchcock's Psycho wasn't 'sexy' enough.
An unusual take on the slasher genre. More suspensful and tense, with some artistic touches worthy of Brian de Palma (of Scarface fame). Michael Caine is wonderful as always. Angie Dickinson delivers a good (and difficult) performance, mostly through body language as a large part of the movie is played out without dialogue. It actually borrows some film making techniques from the era of silent movies. See this one if you want a suspensful and original variation on the ever popular slasher horror genre, though be warned that the movie will probably appeal more to lovers of art movies than the average horror buff.
Nancy Allen was married with Brian the Palma for several years. I find quite interesting that in two of the films they did together
she plays a prostitute.
