Brian De Palma’s sleazy take on Hitchcock, this steamy and engrossing meta erotic thriller will keep you at the edge of your rear window. After losing an acting role and his girlfriend, Jake Scully (Craig Wasson) finally catches a break: he gets offered a gig house-sitting in the Hollywood Hills. While peering through the beautiful home’s telescope one night, he spies a gorgeous woman dancing in her window. When he witnesses the girl’s murder, it leads Scully through the netherworld of the adult entertainment industry on a search for answers—with adult actress Holly Body (national treasure Melanie Griffith) as his guide.
