Available on iTunes, BFI Player, Prime Video
The love story that will scare the life out of you. Obsession. Definition: 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 70's thriller with an evil twist that will leave you speechless.
