When judging the cover of this video, you could get the idea this film is trashy and sleazy. What a façade? Double Exposure is a very well constructed thriller, where you must give thanks to Callan's fantastic performance, for it. He had a bit part as a nasty sleazy businessman in the B prison cult slasher, Chained Heat. He could be the psycho killing beautiful women, snapping shots of them or is the angry, bitter stuntman brother, minus a leg and an arm? Meanwhile Adrian (Callan) is having these really awful dreams, that are practically killing him, all so familiar, are the victims in real life who are being knocked off, justice in those horrible dreams. I like psychological thrillers, which are carefully thought out, motives and all, which can you have you double minded, or where other red herrings are thrown in. Excusing the latter, Double Exposure is one of those movies, where the writer simply just didn't put pen to paper. Like with serial killers, who like, premeditate stuff, this is what the writer's done here, and it's payed off beautifully. Callan's new love interest is one beautiful lass too. Performances here really impressed me, more so Callan's as the troubled and disturbed Adrian Wilde. Callan's presence here is fantastic and has you in, every scene he's in, and you don't know when he could just go off, as being a hyped up character. He has you on edge a lot, really trying to grip on his day to day torment, which has him seeing a shrink (Cassell) who at one stage near it's finale, has to make a choice. Here, the tension really mounts. Although made in 83, the movie has a Seventie's look. But if you love psychological thrillers, and you want to go back in time a bit, this taut little gem, will make your night literally.
