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 Palmas 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Fresh: De Palma directs with a nice feeling for the incongruous.
Rotten: A dead end -- the mark of a superficial stylist unable to take anything seriously, including his own work.
Fresh: An undeniably tight homage to Hitchcock, but I'm still inclined to place it at least a tier below the likes of Dressed to Kill and Body Double.
