    "A sustained work of terror -- elegant, sensual, erotic, bloody!" -Los Angeles Times
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 105 mins
    Retail Price: $19.98
    Release Date:

    Writer/Director Brian De Palma "maintains a fever pitch from start to finish" (Leonard Maltin) with this "steamily libidinous and extremely bloody thriller" (Newsweek)! Starring Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson and Nancy Allen (in a Golden Globe-nominated performance), this taut psycho-sexual chiller is a razor-sharp tale of passion, madness and murder that`s as "scary as the devil [with] suspense to spare" (Playboy)!

    Fashionable Manhattan therapist Dr. Robert Elliott (Caine) faces the most terrifying moment of his life, when a psychotic killer begins attacking the women in his life (Dickinson & Allen) - with a straight razor stolen from his office. Desperate to find the murderer before anyone else is hurt, Elliott is soon drawn into a dark and disturbing world of chilling desires. And as the doctor edges closer to the terrible truth, he finds himself lost in a provocative and deadly maze of obsession, deviance and deceit - where the most harmless erotic fantasies… can become the most deadly sexual nightmares!

    Faithful reproduction of one of the most controversial films of it`s time. Superb set of extras. some of the best i`ve ever seen. The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is flawed though and the sound effects tend to drown out some of the score

    dressed to kill is the best thriller produced out of the 80`s and
    probaly the most contreversial one the film is a must see with
    great performances from caine,allen and dickinson and has the best hand slashing i`ve ever seen the extras are brilliant
    the most interesting one is the comparisons between the R
    version and the tv version there is also a great picture and sound

    Hmm, well I must have missed something here, I found this movie to be somewhat boring and very predictable, and the hard to believe acting probably didnt help much either. I hope you enjoy it, because I just scored myself a new coffee coster.
