Saturday Nightmares: Body Double (1984)

6 February 2010 8:07 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It’s hard to imagine a world where Body Double is a Ken Widerhorn (Return of the Living Dead part II) film. Originally, Brian De Palma had intended to write and produce, but opted to get behind the camera when another of his projects fell through.

And it’s a good thing, too, since making 'Hitchcockian' thrillers has always been the director’s strong point. Sisters, Obsession, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out are examples of De Palma’s ability to tap into the Hitchcock verve while carving his own niche of twisted sexuality and brutal murder. Dismissing De Palma as little more than a Hitchcock knockoff has always been an unfair dismissal in my eyes, as crafting genuine suspense isn’t a talent every director is capable of. Hell, Van Sant recreated Psycho shot-for-shot and failed more miserably than any other director ever has.

With De Palma, even when »
