Director Brian De Palma is known as the one of the masters at the suspense thriller genre thanks to Dressed to Kill, Blow-Out and Body Double. His 1973 feature Sisters is just as scary as the aforementioned features, and it comes out as a Criterion Collection release on October 23 (on both Blu-ray and DVD versions). The feature also is a great showcase for Margot Kidder (Superman) who passed earlier this year.
Dominique (Margot Kidder) is a woman whose life is filled with trauma after being separated from her Siamese twin. This lack of a bond leads her on a darker path, and a reporter (Jennifer Salt) believes Dominique is actually a murderess.
Sisters was previously released on Criterion years ago, but this version comes with a 4K restoration approved by De Palma and a new interview with Salt (who went on to carve out an acclaimed career as a writer and producer). Salt, whose credits include co-writing the script for Eat Pray Love and executive producing American Horror Story, is the daughter of late screenwriter Waldo Salt (Midnight Cowboy, Coming Home).
Previously released extras that are also featured in this edition include a 2004 interview with De Palma, producer Edward R. Pressman, and Sisters co-stars William Finley and Charles Durning (both have since passed) and a 1970 appearance by Margot Kidder on The Dick Cavett Show.
