Sisters 1973 Arrow Video
Brian De Palma’s 1973 psycho-thriller Sisters (originally released in the UK as Blood Sisters) is the weird Hitchcockian work that launched the filmmaker down the path of his signature style in the horror/thriller genre, which would later lead to such classics as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, and Blow Out.

Danielle (Margot Kidder) meets potential boyfriend Philip (Lisle Wilson) after appearing on the TV show Peeping Toms and invites him home for a nightcap. This act invokes the ire of her estranged twin Dominque (also Kidder). From across the courtyard, Grace (Jennifer Salt), spunky reporter for a local Staten Island paper, witnesses one of the twins stabbing Philip to death gruesomely and calls the police, but when they all arrive on the scene, no evidence whatsoever can be found. Of course, ever the inquisitive reporter, Grace can’t leave the incident alone and she decides to investigate on her own without the police’s help. It puts her in danger’s path and leads to strange revelations from the twins’ past...
