31 Scary Movies that are 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon: ‘Sisters’

“Sisters” (1972) – Brian De Palma sometimes gleefully dives into Hitchcock territory (“Blow Out” (1981), “Body Double” (1984)) but with a bloodier, grittier edge. “Sisters” is a perfect example. 

Phillip (Lisle Wilson) meets a young, attractive model, Danielle (Margot Kidder). After spending the night, he unceremoniously meets Danielle’s twin sister, Dominique (also played by Kidder).  Let’s just say that the latter sibling isn’t as congenial as the former. 

A crime is committed.  An upstart reporter (Jennifer Salt) tries to solve the mystery, and the clues are in plain sight! 

See “Sisters”.  With a 93-minute runtime, “Sisters” is capable, low-budget thriller, although – be warned – you won’t look at Gen X’s Lois Lane the same way again. R.I.P., Margot.
