    Same here. I was disappointed in BODY DOUBLE when I saw it but that was a loooong time ago and I should probably give it another chance...but I'm a big fan of DRESSED. It cannot be denied.

    Michael Caine's performance in Dressed to Kill is one of my favorites, so I had to go with that movie.

    Dressed to Kill all the way. Haven't seen Body Double in ages, though.

    Body Double is pure excellence, even with the oddball ending. Dressed to Kill is alright, but certainly nothing special.

    Haven't seen Body Double in well over 10 years, so a vote now would be unfair either way.
    I do think Dressed is overrated as all fuck though. I picked up the dvd when it came out but ended up trading it shortly after.

    Body Double, although the surprises in both are too easy to spot.

    You think so? I think Dressed to Kill is one of the greatest suspense-thrillers ever made. Extremely well-acted, beautifully shot and Pino Donaggio's haunting score is just the icing on the cake (Once again!). Not to mention the storyline progresses extremely well, being devoid of any lack of interest on the viewer's behalf throughout. I wouldn't even consider this a slasher. DePalma's best film, without a doubt. (Carrie comes VERY close too, but Carrie is more horror than suspense/thriller.)

    DRESSED TO KILL,though BODY DOUBLE has grown on me over the years.Personally,I like SISTERS more than both of them,though I find a lot of people still haven't seen that one.

    Two of the best DePalma films. "Body Double" gets better with repeated viewings, but I will "Dressed to Kill" because it's a more satisfying flick. Excellent.

    Body Double for me. One of my favorite De Palma films, along with Blow Out and Carrie.
