| A caricature of suspense
Midway through, "Double Obsession" begins to reek of "Misery," when Heather cripples one of her objects of adoration, holds her hostage, and then commits assorted nasties against assorted interlopers. But there's no comparing the sad "Double Obsession" with the masterful "Misery." There are no characters here, only caricatures -- everyone is either psycho or insists on hanging out with psychos, but we have no idea why. Even "Misery"'s truly psychotic Annie Wilkes was more believable. (And more sympathetic.) The soundtrack, by turns, steals suspense and turns suspense into goofiness. And Heather's "psycho laugh" is from Hitchcock by way of Bugs Bunny. If this weren't a feature-length film with professional sets and actors, I'd think it came from a high-school film class.
