starring: Margot Kidder, Jennifer Salt, Charles Durning, Lisle Wilson.
plot: Actress Danielle Breton (Margot Kidder) is a Siamese twin whose other half is a crazed murderer. When Danielle brings a man (Lisle Wilson) home, she wakes up to discover that he has been brutally butchered. Reporter Grace Collier (Jennifer Salt) witnessed the murder through her window and knows that either Danielle or her twin is the killer, so she launches her own investigation.
the good: A slasher starring Margot Kidder with Brian de Palma directing has to be great. And this was no exception.
As far as I know, this is de Palma's very first horror film and he did perfectly. It just goes to prove that even though his films are mostly stolen from Hitchcock's PSYCHO or his other films, he can still make them just as great.
I had fun figuring out which sister was the killer, and if the reporter could prove there has been a murder. Trust me, it will keep you guessing the whole way through.
So check this film out and have a great time!
