Personal Quote:

I adored the original ending of Fatal Attraction (1987), where Alex slits her throat but leaves Dan's fingerprints on the knife. It was totally horrifying. She's got him from the grave! But audiences in this country would have thrown rocks at the screen. If you really don't care what an audience thinks, make a home movie and show it on your wall. See more »
