Dressed to Kill

A murderous New York City blonde is Dressed to Kill.

We’re thrilled about the high-definition Blu-ray release of Brian De Palma’s (Scarface) sexy (and kinky!) thriller Dressed to Kill. The ever-so-stylish filmmaker was at the height of his visual powers when he made this 1980 movie. Not to mention that it stars Michael Caine (The Man Who Would Be King), Angie Dickinson (TV’s Police Woman) and Nancy Allen (Blow Out) — and the Blu-ray includes the film’s unrated cut.

The movie stars Dickinson as Kate Miller, a sexually repressed New York City housewife who seeks treatment from Dr. Robert Elliott (Caine). While secretly leaving a hotel after a one-night affair, Kate is mysteriously murdered by a tall blonde woman wearing dark shades. The only witness is a high-priced call girl, Liz (Allen), who becomes the killer’s next target. With the help of Kate’s grown son, Peter (Keith Gordon, A Midnight Clear), Liz discovers that the murderer has a bizarre connection to Dr. Elliott. And the plot thickens…

The Blu-ray contains the following bonus features, all of which are available on MGM’s previously issued DVD edition of the film:

  • The Making of a Thriller documentary
  • “Slashing Dressed to Kill” featurette
  • “Dressed to Kill: An Appreciation By Keith Gordon” featurette
  • comparison of the unrated, R-rated and network versions featurette
  • animated photo gallery
