One of De Palma's flawed-yet-fascinating early experiments.

Above average supernatural doings with Kirk Douglas and some paranormal youngsters.

The movie that draws the deepest line in the sand between De Palma apologists and De Palma maniacs.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

De Palma's follow up to "Carrie." Look for Darryl Hannah in her first role.

An often overlooked De Palma effort. A highly entertaining supernatural thriller with a number of visually stunning set pieces and an unforgettably explosive finish.

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

This one was really really good. Much better than some of his other stuff at the time.
