    low for the first half hour, then grows suspenseful, and then just explodes into utter chaos by the final act. It's not my favorite thriller, but it fulfills its promise.

    WHAT THE FLYING FUCK JUICE OF CHRIST IS THIS SHIT?!?! There are no characters in this film I sympathized with at all. Douglas' character is a douchebag who gets into this affair for virtually no reason besides that he's thinking with the wrong fucking head and Glenn Close's character is an undeveloped psycho who had less motivation than the guys who killed Mari from Last House on the Left.

    Also, this film is painfully sexist (seriously, I bet prostate exams…

    I enjoy a good erotic thriller. So what was it about Fatal Attraction that didn't really sit with me too well? I see that there are numerous people accusing David Lynch of misogyny for Blue Velvet but no one went after Adrian Lyne? To the film's credit Glenn Close is a pretty great villain but the problem is that she's the only strong character in the film. Starting off interestingly, the film eventually plunges down into both a sheer bore…

    1987 is bringing sexy back. So this is about a family man (Michael Douglas), who has an impromptu one night stand. When he tries to break it off, he realizes the instability of the woman (Glenn Close), and has to scramble to fix the jeopardy that he has put him and his family in. I’ve never actually seen this movie up until this point…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What makes this more interesting than some stalker films is the characterization of Glenn Close's character's personality disorder. It was a more intrueging and educated take than maniacs are often given.

    Another aspect worth noting was the theme of having to face up to your past. When Douglas cheats on his wife it all seems harmless in the moment, but soon he has to live with the fear of his indulgence and deception being revealed. The fact that what did…

    A married man's one night stand comes back to haunt him when that lover begins to stalk him and his family. - IMDB

    There's a vague recollection that I saw Fatal Attraction many years ago. The scene that stuck out was the final scene featuring a rabbit. Although, there's many parts that I can't recall, so I'm treating it as a first time watch.

    Not a bad film at all. There's a few scenes of suspense, nothing too suspenseful, but…

    #10 in my 80's Week marathon. ("Week" is a funny word, isn't it?)

    Since they're still making Psycho Women thrillers (they pop up every now and then), it must be said that this film has gone on to be surprisingly influential. Certainly moreso than Romancing the Stone (sorry, Kathleen). Hearing the cast speak about making the film (for this viewing, I whipped out my trusty 2002 Special Collector's Edition DVD), it would seem the intent with Glenn Close's character was…
