In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Trailer Tuesdays: Dressed To Kill

Here's a trailer for a film that I, perhaps surprisingly, just saw for the first time last weekend.

As you might expect, I enjoyed it immensely. Somehow, I've managed to avoid major spoilers all these years. I was aware cross-dressing was involved, so the big reveal wasn't hard to spot, but I was shocked by the elevator scene involving Angie Dickinson

I guess I shouldn't have been, as this was Brian De Palma's version of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho - as subsequently Body Double was his Rear Window - but for some reason, I didn't see it coming.

You can say what you want about De Palma's emulation of Hitchcock, but he's made some fantastic thrillers over the years.
