Double Exposure has always been one of my favorate thrillers. Part Depalma, part Up All Night B Movie, it hits that in between sweet spot that few films are unable to accomplish.
Its the story of Adrian Wilde, a nice guy who makes his living as a photographer. He takes pics of models during the day and has a nice looking girlfriend named Mindy. You would think that he has it made. He just has one slight problem. He appears to be going completely insane.
See he keeps having dreams of all the models he takes photographs. Nothing wrong with that, but in his dreams they are always violently murdered. Suddenly the women he dreams about begin turning up dead. Convinced he is the murderer he begins going insane and trying to get help from not only a psychiatrist, but his stuntman brother as well.
Is he the killer? Watch the film, as there are latterly dozens of suspects, some being incredibly obvious. We get to see the kills in a POV setting which adds to the mystery of the film.
Like I said the film, although a bit campy, especially now in this day and age, really hits it out of the park. The acting is top of the line, and filled with nudity and some great practical effect kills its a treat for fans of slasher and psychological horror films.
Vinegar Syndrome, one of my favorite labels has picked up the rights to this one and have released it on Blu-ray for the first time. SO not only do you get their usual gorgeous transfer, you get a nice bit of special features as well.
