DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
A woman under the care of psychologist Dr. Elliott (Michael Caine) tries to seduce the doctor, who rejects her. That evening, she goes on a one-night stand, leaves her lover's apartment and enters an elevator, where she is suddenly slashed to death by a mysterious blonde. A high priced call girl, Liz (Nancy Allen), witnessed the killing, and joins forces with the victim's son to find the killer. DePalma's film is an homage to Psycho, but with its outrageous violence and sex is decidedly modern, going to the insane lengths that the master of suspense could never have achieved in his lifetime. Both adored (nominated for a Golden Globe) and reviled (nominated for numerous Razzie Awards) in its day, Dressed to Kill's reputation has grown over the years and is a flamboyant cult classic.
