    Fatal Attraction, Starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. A thrilling romance-turned-nightmare drama. Film has got the wits of portraying the theme of it in rather sensational way, Michael Douglas plays his role in rather a typical imposing handsome man in attire, and Glenn plays it typical psycho; and so does the rest of the cast including Archer as an ideal housewife. Fatal Attraction has got some scenes which are totally bizarre and worth in this thriller, including Rabbit-boiling, and the intrusion by Michael into Close' home at the very end.

    Watching this movie is reading a really engaging novel, you can't wait to see what happens. The film starts off simple enough but then it builds and builds and builds until that final climax. Michael Douglas is, as usual, great and I don't think I've wished more horrible things upon a movie character more than Glenn close, as Alex Forrest. This movie is so intense, so intriguing, its amazing. When a movie can really make me care for the characters to the point I too feel affected, that must be one hell of a movie.

    Tame by 2015 standards, but with a great performance by Douglas. Glenn Close turns crazy a little too quickly but I guess you know what you're signing up for when you read the title.

    Predictable ending and felt a bit strangely paced, I couldn't sympathise with the mentally ill woman and felt she was portrayed as unrealistic. Plot was however, mildly entertaining and built up tension, especially in certain scenes. I liked the use of cuts to show contrast and portray emotion.

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

    When a movie is called genre defining, it usually means it was the first one of that genre, or the first one in a while, to make a shit tonne of money. In the 90s, when Sharon Stone was getting bigger and bigger pay cheques for dodgier and dodgier erotic thrillers, I hope she was giving a portion of those cheques to Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, Adrian Lyne and James Dearden. Because there would be no Basic Instinct or Slither…

    A thriller that's very good until the relatively absurd ending.

    This is essentially a dumber and more sexist remake of Play Misty for Me; the main female characters are relatively undimensioned and most of their being derives from their relationship to the male character, Dan Gallagher has an affair for no evident reason at all and is presented as the victim rather than (at least) the author of his own misfortune, and Alex (who with a slight retelling would be the tragic hero of the piece) has to be presented…

    Well, what am I supposed to do? You won't answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I'm not gonna be ignored, Dan!

    Like Gone Girl except the "psycho bitch" dies at the end, and the audience could rejoice knowing that Dan Gallagher could be happy again with his family because he learnt his lesson, alright!…

    "This has got to stop."- Dan Gallagher

    Fatal Attraction is underrated Thriller that stars Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and Anne Archer. All three of them deliver in spades, but it was Douglas who impressed me most despite being the only one of the three who wasn't nominated for an Oscar. I thought he brilliantly portrayed his character throughout. I also really enjoyed the story. I don't see how anyone can see this film and ever think about cheating on their…
