Summary
  • A house-sitting actor finds himself obsessed with his beautiful neighbor. When she is brutally murdered, he engages the unwitting key to the crime, porn queen Holly Body, to help him catch the killer
  • "Brian De Palma invites you to witness a seduction ... a mystery ... a murder. It's Body Double--a spine-tingling look at voyeurism and sexuality from the modern master of suspense. Jake Scully, an unemployed actor, is asked to house-sit at a luxurious hillside apartment. As a bonus, the home offers Jake a telescopic peek into the bedroom of Gloria Revelle, who performs an arousing striptease. When Jake discovers another man is also spying on Gloria, he begins an obsessive surveillance of her. Soon a grisly murder leads him into the world of X-rated film where he meets sexy porn queen Holly Body, who is a key to the crime. De Palma has created a gripping adult thriller of eroticism and horror!"--Container
