Product Description

WHAT THE DEVIL HATH JOINED TOGETHER LET NO MAN CUT ASUNDER!

Before 1973, Brian De Palma was impossible to pigeonhole: he made comedies, political satires and openly experimental pieces. But with Sisters (originally released as Blood Sisters in the UK) he turned to the suspense thriller and discovered his natural home - and a style that would lead directly to later masterpieces like (Carrie, Dressed to Kill and (Blow Out.

When Danielle (Margot Kidder) meets potential boyfriend Philip (Lisle Wilson) after appearing on the TV show Peeping Toms (a nod to the Michael Powell shocker), she invites him home, only to attract the ire of her twin sister Dominique. From across the courtyard, Rear Window style, reporter Grace (Jennifer Salt) witnesses Philip being murdered by one of the twins - but the police find no body or any physical evidence. Naturally, Grace takes things into her own hands, and discovers more about the sisters relationship than she bargained for...

Strongly influenced by Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski, and with a score by the great Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Psycho), Sisters was the first true Brian De Palma film.

5.0 out of 5 stars De Palma's classic comes to UK Blu Ray 23 April 2014
Format:DVD
Sisters (1973) – Arrow’s UK Blu Ray Reviewed by Darren Allison
"The Next Alfred Hitchcock" was how director Brian De Palma was being celebrated by some back in 1973. It was largely in praise of his latest film, the thriller ‘Sisters’. There is little doubt that Sisters is not only homage to Hitchcock’s Psycho, but also a huge nod towards Hitchcock’s entire body of work. As the saying goes - ‘You only borrow from the best’ and of course, it was no secret that De Palma was a huge admirer of Hitchcock’s work.
‘Sisters’ was inspired by a Life Magazine article read by De Palma, about the Russian Siamese twins Masha and Dasha. The film begins with a model named Danielle (played by Margot Kidder), who appears on the local TV game show, Peeping Toms (the film’s first example of its voyeuristic theme). Danielle goes out to dinner with the winning contestant, Phillip Wood. Her strange ex-husband Emile (De Palma regular William Finley) follows Danielle to the restaurant and finally creates a scene. Phillip takes Danielle back to her home in Staten Island. Emile keeps watch outside their apartment, as Danielle and Phillip spend the night together.
The next morning, Phillip is brutally killed (with a large Psycho style knife and in graphic detail) after overhearing Danielle speak to her sister, Dominique. The murder is seen by reporter Grace Collier (Jennifer Salt), from her own apartment (not unlike Hitchcock’s Rear Window). The police are not entirely enamelled with Grace or her homicide story, perhaps because she had recently wrote a damming story on the Police Force. In true Hitchcock style, Grace takes it upon herself to investigate and is drawn into a bizarre story of Siamese siblings, a mysterious mental institute, and identifying the truth behind Dominique and Danielle.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 18 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally in blu ray -- something the Americans won't bother with doing.

Great clear imagery and detail you would expect from blu ray, even the noticeable grain. Sound was vivid. The only flaw would be the framing of the image. Lower half of the bottom lettering in some title credits is missing; this is a problem for sticklers since the fonts are small. However, the blu ray imagery makes up for this tiny flaw. I do not regret this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie. Beautiful release 13 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Great movie. Beautiful release. I saw this film at the cinema many years ago and this copy looks sharper than it looked then. The story holds up well right to the end. I'd forgotten how it ended which made it feel as if I was watching a fresh new thriller for much of the running time. Herrmann's score catapault's you into a queasily thrilling world from the very opening. Worth watching and owning.
