3.0 out of 5 stars Serial killer film with a lot of TNA Oct. 2 2012
By Yves-Michel TOP 100 REVIEWER
Lots of hardbodies stuck in a sceranio made for them to show their asssts. A goreless slasher which is more Charlie's angels than Halloweeen. This film is so focused on the basic element of a clean killing-fest that you wish they would cut the dialogues. Sprinkled with a little sex, you get tired rapidly of the whole thing. Show me the skin.... so clean that it will look innocent. The storyline is boring and useless. Anyway, the ladies are good looking and it is all that matters.

Recommended, if you can get it in a multi-disk package....... trust me, you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars a troubled photographer is connected to a string of grisly murders... March 10 2012
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Written, produced, and directed by William Byron Hillman, Double Exposure (1983) is a movie that blurs the line between fantasy and reality, as a serial killer is operating in the Los Angeles area, leaving behind a trail of dead prostitutes and models. A gritty example of 1980's exploitation cinema, this crime thriller doesn't shy away from violence directed at women, nudity, or gore.

Commercial photographer Adrian Wilde (Michael Callan) drives a Porche, lives in a mobile home, and has crazy dreams about killing people, usually his models while on a photo shoot. He is seeing a psychiatrist, and telling him what is happening, but isn't making much progress. News reports about additional victims continue, but suffering from memory lapses, Adrian can't remember if he was involved.

Adrian gets some support from his ex-stunt driver brother B.J. (James Stacey), who is handicapped by only having one leg, and his new girlfriend Mindy Jordache (Joanna Pettet), who wants to believe in him. Police detectives Fontain (Pamela Hensley) and Buckhold (David Young) are assigned to catch the killer, and after a decoy is murdered with an ice pick, the Chief (Cleavon Little) intensifies the investigation. Because of his association with the dead models, suspicion eventually points to Adrian Wilde.

There are some mean kills, a particularly long and nasty one involves a model being bitten by a poisonous snake, as a dispassionate Wilde snaps photos of the girl screaming and thrashing in agony. Sally Kirland appears in a cameo as a back alley hooker, who displays her wares before having her neck brutally snapped. Comedian Joey Foreman also appears briefly, before making a bloody exit. If you blink you'll miss her, but SNL's Victoria Jackson appears as a racetrack model. The biggest issue with the film is that many of the kills appear to be dreams, so what is real and what is fantasy, isn't always clear. Although the movie serves up a heap of violence, it doesn't play fair with the audience following along looking for clues.

Playing brothers, Michael Callan (Cat Ballou) and James Stacey do resemble each other quite a bit facially. Known for playing Johnny Lancer on the TV series Lancer (1968-70), Stacey lost his left leg and part of his left arm in an accident in 1973, so that's really him moving around on one leg, and even participating in a mud wrestling match, and not some camera trick. With an acting career that was mostly on television, Joanna Pettet makes a rare film appearance. She does a fine job, as there are some sensitive moments, and even she exposes some flesh. Callan also does good job, but his character might be a more sympathetic, if only we could tell for sure, if what we are seeing is real.

With some decent acting performances, Double Exposure isn't total exploitive, misogynistic trash, but there is a fair amount of nudity, and the movie plays games with the audience, to showcase what are often the graphic murders of women. If you enjoy a psychological thriller from the 80's, spiced with some sex, you may want to give this a watch. Making its first appearance on DVD, the film has been remastered, and the "Katarina's Nightmare Theater" edition contains some clips featuring horror actress and hostess, Katarina Winters introducing the film, and also interviewing Michael Callan. Callan also participates in one of two commentary tracks.

3.0 out of 5 stars ALL I WANT IS A SIMPLE RELATIONSHIP Oct. 24 2012
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
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)

I loved this movie. James Stacy is a great actor and I enjoy all his movies and tv appearances.

This is an edge of you set who do it with a twist.

2.0 out of 5 stars The title and the poster are the best thing about this film. July 19 2012
By jhd - Published on Amazon.com
Despite the good cast, decent acting, and an insulting cheat of an ending when you discover who has been doing the killing. Some of the characters' traits go up and
down; this way and that. The fault is most likely on the script. The production has the feel of a made for tv movie except when delving into the the sleazy sheen with the back alleys, prostitutes, and mud wrestling scene. Not bloody for a "psycho-killer" film,
, just boring. The relationship between the two brothers has a few nice scenes and Joanna Petit is fine as usual (but deserves better). Cleavon Little has a throwaway
role as police sergeant, (he too deserves better). If you must see this, pick it up in one of those 50 movie packs from Mill Creek.
