Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

THE LOVE STORY THAT WILL SCARE THE LIFE OUT OF YOU

Obsession. Def: A Compulsive, often unreasonable idea or emotion

High melodrama, creeping insanity and barely contained delirium abound in this dizzying tribute to the high tension thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock from director Brian De Palma (Carrie, Scarface, Dressed to Kill)

Michael Courtland is a Southern gentleman who seems to have everything - A successful business, a beautiful wife and an adoring young daughter – until a botched kidnapping tears his world apart leaving him widowed, bereaved and bereft. Years later on a trip to Italy, he meets a woman with an uncanny resemblance to his late wife but all is not how it appears as a twisted conspiracy threatens to unhinge his mental shackles, sending him to the knife edge of MADNESS!

A master class in mounting unease and clammy palmed claustrophobia, Obsession is a classic 70s thriller with an evil twist that will leave you speechless.

Similar but different

This film self admittedly started off as a riff on Vertigo by De Palma and Paul Schrader and it is very evident when viewing the film that this is the case however I think the story of Obsession is much stronger but even though the visuals and direction are very good it doesn’t hold a candle to the visuals in Vertigo. This package from Arrow video has solid video, great audio and interesting special features.
