It's hard to fathom why Angie Dickinson agreed to expose herself so graphically for Brian de Palma's lurid rip-off of Hitchcock. She plays a sexually frustrated housewife who pays rather too high a price for her indiscretion with a chap at an art gallery. Nancy Allen's prostitute is the only witness to the murder and is subsequently stalked by the killer. Michael Caine also stars as a shrink in this absurd but gripping thriller.
