"It was a sophisticated thriller patterned after Psycho." That's how director BRIAN DE PALMA once described his directorial debut Murder a la Mod, a pre-Sisters Sixties stylish shocker that's anchored firmly in Something Weird territory with its riffs on sexploitation and horror films.

"Oh, please don't make me pose for these pictures. I know you need the money to divorce your wife," says a groovy model as she undresses in a photographer's studio moments before she gets her throat slit with a Dressed to Kill-style straight-edge razor. We next see JENNIFER SALT (star of Sisters) and another actress do "Art Model Screen Tests" for the role of Karen -- presumably the same Karen the rest of the film will be about -- and repeating the lines, "Don't make me pose for these pictures. I know you need the money to divorce your wife." With cinematic reality appropriately blurred, we then meet leading-lady Karen (MARGO NORTON), as she stops by her boyfriend Christopher's photography studio unannounced and learns that he earns a living making nudie films with creepy Otto (De Palma favorite WILLIAM FINLEY). Though Christopher doesn't like making sex films, he "needs the money to divorce his wife." Uh oh.
