In Body Double, director Brian DePalma pays homage to the Alfred Hitchcock movies Vertigo and Rear Window, adding a few grotesque touches all his own. Craig Wasson plays Jake, a struggling actor who keeps losing jobs because of his claustrophobia. To make matters worse, his girlfriend has walked out on him, so he has no place to sleep. His pal offers him the use of his apartment for the evening. The apartment happens to be equipped with a huge picture window and telescope, enabling him to spy on

Is Body Double Brian De Palma's most underrated film or merely a guilty pleasure on my part? Naturally, I make the case for the former.
Classic De Palma. Stylish and Sexy.
It's a mystery, a romance, a horror flick, and a straight-faced parody all rolled into one unique little movie.
...De Palma's expectedly grandiose directorial choices go a long way towards keeping things interesting...
Emblematizes De Palma's refusal to take Hollywood seriously.
Body Double, while not his finest, is the best candidate as Brian De Palma's signature film.
Another sexed-up Hitchcockian thriller from Brian De Palma. Plays much better today than it did in 1984.
Kinda stupid, really.
A gripping murder mystery in which director Brian De Palma offers sly tributes to Alfred Hitchcock.
No one can rip off Hitchcock quite like De Palma
A minor De Palma with a few great moments and a soggy leading man.
Uneven, but underrated De Palma effort.
Ultimately, Body Double feels like a film that seems more interested in pleasing itself than pleasing the audience.
Sneaky, bloody but clever reworking of Vertigo
