In Body Double, director Brian DePalma pays homage to the Alfred Hitchcock movies Vertigo and Rear Window, adding a few grotesque touches all his own. Craig Wasson plays Jake, a struggling actor who keeps losing jobs because of his claustrophobia. To make matters worse, he discovers his girlfriend cheating on him, so he has no place to sleep. His pal offers him the use of his apartment for the evening. The apartment happens to be equipped with a huge picture window and telescope, enabling him to spy on his beautiful neighbor Gloria (Deborah Shelton) while she undresses. He soon realizes that the woman is in grave danger, and begins to track her every move, with the hope of coming to her aid.

Following in the realm of 'Body Heat' this movie is a flat out masterpiece....A very well shot movie which captures mid 1980's Beverly Hills better than any other movie..Very erotic and suspenseful thriller...Gregg Henry is brilliant along with star Craig Wasson..Melanie Griffith and Dennis Franz also have memorable turns in this De palma cult classic

There are 2 sequences that makes this DePalma formula effort worth seeing: The through the maze run at the Rodeo Drive mall and Melaine Griffith's porn actress ''do and won't do'' rift to Craig Wasson. The scenery is stunning and performances by Dennis Franz, Gregg Henry and the leads are worth the 90 plus minutes. Where's the beautiful Nancy Allen?
