De Palma and Griffith

Actor Jake Scully (Craig Wasson) finds himself suffering from claustrophobia and he's later fired. He goes home and catches his girlfriend cheating on him. He is befriended by Sam Bouchard (Gregg Henry) who offers him a place to stay. Sam shows him a telescope trained on a scantily-clad neighbor. He becomes obsessed with the woman and starts following her. She is Gloria Revelle (Deborah Shelton) and he comes to her rescue with a purse snatcher. He continues to spy on her when the thief shows up and murders her. Then he notices a tattoo on porn actress Holly Body (Melanie Griffith) that is the same as the one spied on Gloria.

It's director Brian De Palma and Melanie Griffith as the Body. It's salacious and devious. I'm not sure that the premise completely works. There's no need for a false alibi with the Body. The alibi shouldn't work in the actual murder. I don't think the premise works but I'm not sure. Craig Wasson is a solid everyman actor although the role may fit better a matinee idol. He is the lead actor in the movie within the movie after all. Despite that, this is deviously voyeuristic and deliciously sexy.

A Mystery with Several Strange Twists and Turns

After being booted from a film due to his being claustrophobic, "Jake Scully" (Craig Wasson) goes back to the apartment he shares with his girlfriend "Carol" (Barbara Crampton) and discovers her in bed with another man. This results in him moving out and at the suggestion of a recent acquaintance named "Sam Bouchard" (Gregg Henry) he is offered the opportunity to temporarily reside in a luxurious high rise apartment while Sam is out of town on business. After quickly showing him the place, Sam then beckons him to a telescope he has pointed to another apartment window where an extremely beautiful woman named "Gloria Revelle" (Deborah Shelton) performs a sexy striptease at the same time every night. Naturally, being a red-blooded male he watches her the next night as well and it's during this time that he notices a strange person stalking her and immediately becomes convinced that she is in danger. So in an attempt to protect her he begins to follow her as well--and things take a turn for the worse immediately afterward. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was an interesting film which greatly benefited from the presence of two attractive actresses in Melanie Griffith (as the porn star "Holly Body") and the aforementioned Deborah Shelton. Likewise, it also took several strange twists and turns which served to maintain the mystery throughout most of the film as well. That said, I enjoyed this particular movie and have rated it accordingly. Above average.

Hitchcockian thriller!!!

In 1988 before watch any movie l used to read the review on newspaper which was my guide and l remember very clear about this movie being a homage from Palma to your master Hitchcock...when l watched the movie late night l'd fully understood's really are a mix of Vertigo...Rear Window and Psycho all elements are here including the soundtrack easily analogous from Hitch's movies...Brian de Palma made a remarkable job in this picture...showing to us about porno industry and all behind of Hollywood's scheme...the casting is fine Craig Wasson as claustrophobic and insecure guy,Greg Henry as crooked and Melanie Griffith as porno actress with dared takes...anyway a movie to never forget!!
