Format: VHS Tape
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)

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.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A "rainy day" movie. 30 Dec. 2004
By Tressa L. Breen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Starring: Ian Buchanan, Jennifer Gatti, James McEachin, William R. Moses, Ron Perlman, Dedee Pfeiffer.

A jealously possessive husband (Buchanan) finds that his "girl in cotton wool" wife (Gatti) is having an affair. He has a contract put out on the mystery boyfriend but the hit is botched and his wife is killed instead. Now he wants both the mystery boyfriend and the hit man dead...but who the "mystery boyfriend" and "hit man" turn out to be....

This is TV movie quality with a nice twist at the end (50-50 chance you'll guess it). Has some semi graphic sex scenes.

Ron Perlman has a supporting role (but top billing!) as a private investigator with secrets both past and present, and he gives his usual solid performance.

Favorite line(s): spoken by the husband to his and his wife's friend: "You would tell me if she were having an affair, wouldn't you?" her reply: "Would I tell her if you were having an affair?"

4.0 out of 5 stars A remake of THE PHOTOGRAPHER (1974) 4 Jun. 2014
By Fred Adelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Director/producer/screenwriter William Byron Hillman returns eight years later with a semi-remake/sequel to his first film, THE PHOTOGRAPHER (1974), once again starring Michael Callan (LEPRECHAUN 3 - 1995) as psycho cameraman Adrian Wilde, who apparently survived the fatal stabbing in the finale of the first film. Adrian is still as unstable as ever, living in a Winnebago and apparently killing prostitutes at night (the latest victim is an undercover cop in drag, who gets an icepick graphically shoved through his neck), while making weekly visits to his psychiatrist, Dr. Frank Curtis (Seymour Cassel; DEATH GAME - 1977), and complaining about the lack of "nice girls" in Los Angeles. When leaving the doctor's office, he meets Mindy Jordache (Joanna Pettet; THE EVIL - 1978) in the elevator and talks her into having dinner with him. Adrian makes a living as an advertising photographer and his latest assignment is taking publicity photos of his brother B.J. (James Stacy; PAPER MAN - 1971), a racecar driver who lost an arm and a leg in a racing accident (Stacy lost both appendages in real life in a 1973 motorcycle accident). B.J. is a bitter man whose wife left him after the accident and took the kids with her, leaving him an abusive alcoholic and a misogynist. Adrian and Mindy go on their dinner date and hit it off, agreeing to go on a second date the next night, but a series of events will make that date hard to keep. That night, Adrian has a nightmare where he kills a pretty swimsuit model in a pool, so he make a pact with B.J. to keep him company every night just to make sure the nightmares don't turn into reality. It doesn't work. The next night, another hooker (an early role for Sally Kirkland) has her neck snapped by someone wearing brown leather gloves (the film takes-on a giallo atmosphere in this scene) and when the swimsuit model Adrian dreamed about is actually found dead in the pool, Adrian grows more despondent and ignores phone calls from Mindy. Meanwhile, cops Sgt. Fontain (Pamela Hensley; THE NUDE BOMB - 1980) and Sgt. Buckhold (David Young; MARY. MARY, BLOODY MARY - 1975) catch flak from their police chief (Cleavon Little) for failing to catch the killer. The question soon becomes: Is Adrian the killer or could it be someone else? Could it be B.J., who manages to insult every woman he meets, as well as taunting Adrian's homosexual assistant, Lewis (Don Potter), thanks to his deep-seated hatred for his ex-wife? Or could it be Dr. Curtis, who seems to take a more-than-professional interest in Adrian's nightmares? What about Mindy? We really know nothing about her except that she is a patient of Dr. Curtis. What is she being treated for? Adrian's nightmares increase, including images of Mindy being stabbed in the stomach, himself being blown away by a jealous husband with a shotgun and killing a model by sticking her head in a plastic garbage bag containing a live rattlesnake. When more and more of Adrian's subjects end up murdered in real life and Mindy is stabbed just like in his nightmares, the real killer reveals himself (it's not much of a surprise), only to be stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle by Mindy, who is not quite as dead as in Adrian's dreams. Though not as frenetic as THE PHOTOGRAPHER, director Hillman (RAGIN' CAJUN - 1991) eschews that film's PG rating and goes for the R-rated goods here, including plentiful female nudity (featuring a rare topless scene by Joanna Pettet) and some gory murders. Unlike THE PHOTOGRAPHER, Michael Callan has only one freak-out scene here, something that made the first film such a hoot to watch. The addition of James Stacy as Callan's brother is a good choice because they closely resemble each other and share the same mannerisms, which gives the film a shot of believability. Hillman also offers us a cast of great character actors, including Seymour Cassel, Cleavon Little and Robert Tessier as Aleck the bartender, but the roles are so underwritten, they are wasted. As it stands, DOUBLE EXPOSURE is a passable way to spend 95 minutes of your life, but it lacks the looniness factor of its predecessor. Sometimes nudity and blood cannot replace the air of insanity, something THE PHOTOGRAPHER had in spades. Also starring Misty Rowe, Frances Bay, Alfred Mazza, Jenna Tomasina and an early bit part by ex-SNL'er Victoria Jackson. Excellent original OAR print from Scorpion Releasing.
