See Morgan in the shower, in a hot tub, in bed, being stalked..., 12 June 2013
Author: sgtking from United States

Like with every other genre, there are good Thrillers and bad ones. Big or small screen, it doesn't matter the medium. Of course, not all the bad ones are duds. There are some meant to be taken seriously that that you just can't. Notable as Morgan Fairchild's feature debut, 'The Seduction' doesn't have all it takes to be a great Thriller. It does however have the right ingredients to be a minor cult classic.

Pros: Actors give their all, especially Andrew Stevens. Beautifully shot. Director David Schmoeller creates some tension. Decent score. Some unintentional hilarity. Moves at a good pace most of the time.

Cons: Lacking suspense. Morgan Fairchild has a couple off moments, the worst being when she breaks down at work. Dated. Drags in the middle. Some plot holes.

Final thoughts: Don't go in expecting something in the same league as Hitchcock. This is a pretty by-the-numbers Thriller, but not unwatchable. It will surely lighten up a dull afternoon or evening. It's like they took a script for a Lifetime movie, sexed it up and made it for the big screen. It's not very sexy or scary, but it is campy fun.

My rating: 3/5
