    It's a testament to the strength of the production how incredibly easy it is to get sutured into the thrills and chills of "Fatal Attraction." Glenn Close is magnificently creepy as the dejected Alex Forrest and Michael Douglas does a fine job of balancing his character's overblown 80s machismo with a helpless and terrified shock and awe. If you take the film at face value, "Fatal Attraction" is a powerful and dynamic social thriller that still packs an emotional punch.…

    Few movies of the past twenty-five years have had the cultural impact of "Fatal Attraction", and it has managed to maintain its place in film and pop culture history since its release. The story touched a very sensitive nerve with every guy who saw it, and it had such an impact with them that it certainly scared most of them faithful. But it has also stood the test of time because it's so well made, terrifically acted and beautifully directed.…

    "I mean, I'm not gonna be ignored, Dan!"

    I think everyone knows the plot of Fatal Attraction: married man has an affair, woman becomes obsessed, chaos ensues.

    Even though the story itself is a bit of a standard thriller, the film really rests in the hands of Glenn Close and how effective her performance is. Luckily, she is able to enter the mind of Alex Forrest with ease. Whether she is on or off screen, the presence she creates always…

    Family man has affair with another woman while family is out of town. Man tells woman its just a fling, and he must return to his family. Woman disagrees, and attempts to destroy man's life.
    That's basically the plot of Fatal Attraction. It's a Lifetime movie with a budget and a cast (Glen Close is terrifying).
    Close is so maniacal, the film verges on becoming a slasher film. On a side note; she's a slight woman and I had a…

    Realmente no me esperaba gran cosa de esta película y para sorpresa me ha parecido que está muy bien hecha y que cumple con su prometido de ser un thriller cargado de una buena atmósfera y una increíble interpretación de Glenn Close, además de el cast en general que estuvo a la altura. Llega a dar miedo la obsesión que puede tener una persona sobre otra y como hará todo para tratar de tenerla. Llena de escenas muy buenas, que no son memorables, pero que sí se disfrutan. Prefiero esta que la misma Cape Fear.

    Qué terror. Da más miedo porque esto podría pasarle al espectador en cualquier momento. Una noche loca con una guapa que te echa el ojo y boom, de pronto todo se vuelve un horror. Qué miedo, por eso no le entro a esas cosas. Me angustió muchísimo.

    ¿Y Alex sí estaba embarazada? Al final nunca la desmienten, lo que hace que todo el clímax sea aún más rudo. Pobre Michael Douglas, lo que le pasa por andar de fresco.

    My chain reaction continued with another Michael Douglas thriller involving a possibly deadly affair. Other than a few moments that take the suspense into irritable shrillness, the film is quite tense in its best moments. I did find myself wondering how or why this was the moment Glenn Close's character went off the deep end, or whether she had in the past, but the film isn't really concerned with that and doesn't need it. And the finale knows what more films should, that bathrooms are a great setting for a tense standoff.

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

    A guilty pleasure. Sometimes it's boring, other times it's a geek show (like that boiled rabbit scene), but at its best, it's a surprisingly visceral reversal of gender dynamics. Typical of late 80's/early 90's thrillers, the brunette is the Madonna and the blonde is the villainous Whore. The main reason why it works is because Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer are all so good, you forgive its idiocies.

    Like pretty much every Adrian Lyne movie, it's trashy, but…

    The film that has to be the ultimate warning against infidelity; Michael Douglas' foolish affair with Glenn Close drags him (and his poor family) into his own personal hell, as Close develops into a stalker that threatens to destroy his life. Director Adrian Lyne crafts a tense thriller which benefits from terrific performances from the leads. DVD and Blu Ray releases include an alternate ending that is cleverer than the official one.
