BYT Murder Club: Sisters
Brian De Palma
BYT Murder Club is an effort by brightestyoungthings.com staff that are murder mystery enthusiasts. This is our Lady Killers edition, in recognition of international women’s month.
Margot Kidder is Danielle, a beautiful model separated from her Siamese twin, Dominique. When a hotshot reporter (Jennifer Salt) suspects Dominique of a brutal murder, she becomes dangerously ensnared in the sisters’ insidious sibling bond. A scary and stylish paean to female destructiveness, De Palma’s first foray into horror voyeurism is a stunning amalgam of split-screen effects, bloody birthday cakes, and a chilling score by frequent Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann.
“An expertly paced, technically audacious thriller that’s too knowing to be easily dismissed as a mere exercise.” AV CLUB
“Just the thing to see on one of those nights when you want to go to the movies for the old-fashioned fun of it.” NY TIMES
“A perfectly orchestrated exercise in style, a staging of some of the finest suspense sequences since Alfred Hitchcock was above ground.” FILM STAGE
