Sisters (1972)

Sisters (1972), written and directed by Brian De Palma.

The young director's thriller homage to Hitchcock, with generous quotes of Spellbound (1945), Rear Window (1954), and Psycho (1960). He even gets Bernard Herrmann to contribute a worthy score.

The composer elevates whatever he touches, but otherwise this film is entertaining without being exceptional. It has some giallo gruesomeness.


Remade in 2003.

Available on DVD from Criterion. The image is pretty bad in spots.
