Murder a la Mod is a 1968 film directed by Brian De Palma. The film was released in one cinema in New York City. It quickly disappeared not long after and was thought lost. However, the film was released by Criterion on Blu-ray in April 2011, as bonus feature to Blow Out.[1]

It was the first film for which Brian De Palma served as both writer and director.

In De Palma's 1981 film Blow Out, Dennis Franz's character watches the film on TV.



Murder a la Mod received negative reviews from critics and audiences, earning a 30% Audience Score but no approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. David Nusair of "Reel Film Reviews" called it "Brian De Palma's first (and worst) feature-length endeavor."
