4.0 out of 5 stars THE PHOTOGRAPHER TOO
Another decent entry in Scorpion's Katrina's Nightmare Theater strand.
A photographer is plagued by nightmares that seem to link him to the murder of a number of young women.
Double Exposure has a lot of nudity and some inventive deaths. It's also quite nicely shot and for the most part well acted. Interestingly, this flick could be seen as a reboot or even...

3.0 out of 5 stars ALL I WANT IS A SIMPLE RELATIONSHIP
Adrian (Michael Callan) is a troubled photographer. He dreams about people dying and they actually die the way he dreamed it, go figure. He lives in a large travel trailer, drives a 928 Porsche, wears his shirts open, and has some of the worse pick-up lines ever...except for the ones used by his brother (James Stacy) who is missing an arm and a leg.

There are...

4.0 out of 5 stars THE PHOTOGRAPHER TOO, 7 April 2012

Another decent entry in Scorpion's Katrina's Nightmare Theater strand.
A photographer is plagued by nightmares that seem to link him to the murder of a number of young women.
Double Exposure has a lot of nudity and some inventive deaths. It's also quite nicely shot and for the most part well acted. Interestingly, this flick could be seen as a reboot or even a loose sequel. Its star and director, Micheal Callan and William Byron Hillman respectively, had collaborated on a thematically similar movie almost ten years previous to the release of Double Exposure (1983). The Photographer also featured Callan as snapper Adrian Wilde and was a minor hit in 1974.
Double Exposure's rep as something of an ego trip for it's star is a little unfair. Whilst, it's true that Micheal Callan does not entirely convince as a babe magnet, a bigger problem is that his performance is a little histrionic and indulgent at times. But the film is by no means a bad one. It's central mystery is intriguing.
Scorpion's print is fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, 1 April 2012
This review is from: Double Exposure [DVD] [1982] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The basic story..There's a maniac in the city brutally killing and the police are failing to get anywhere in the case. A fashion photographer begins to suffer nightmares that he is doing the killings himself, but is he the killer?
"Double Exposure" is mostly classed in the slasher genre but for the most part it's more of a thriller. I think the acting is good with a decent cast and it's well shot with nice cinematography. There are some times when it slows down a bit but for sure the tension builds nicely and it's entertaining for the most part. It certainly has a high sleaze factor and the mystery and plot turns are gripping enough to keep the interest going. The killings are quite brutal and inventive but it's towards the end when the blood flows the most. Fans of slashers,Gialli and thrillers should certainly find enjoyment with this film.
Scorpion have done a good job with the DVD. The picture quality is certainly good enough for me although some perfectionists might have expected more. Extras are 2 commentaries,interviews and trailers.

This review is from: Double Exposure [DVD] [1982] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Adrian (Michael Callan) is a troubled photographer. He dreams about people dying and they actually die the way he dreamed it, go figure. He lives in a large travel trailer, drives a 928 Porsche, wears his shirts open, and has some of the worse pick-up lines ever...except for the ones used by his brother (James Stacy) who is missing an arm and a leg.

There are two cops tracking the killer (Pamela Hensley, David Young) who work for the proverbial angry black chief (Cleavon Little). The cast includes minor roles by Misty Rowe and Victoria Jackson before she discovered Big Macs. The film overall is poorly scripted and acted. The hair styles and automobiles did bring back some memories.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Joanna Pettet from Casino Royale, Sally Kirkland of General Hospital, Jeana Keough a ZZ Top Video girl, Debbie Zipp)
