Many movie posters for the film featured a long text preamble that read: "Every man she marries is mysteriously murdered. One woman has uncovered the truth. But proving it could be fatal". This thriller film noir actually debuted around six months prior to the same 1987 year's big box-office suspenser hit Fatal Attraction (1987). See more »

When he didn't come to the office, 10:30, 11:00, I called the house. Catherine... he went in his sleep, peacefully. The doctor said if you'd been sleeping right next to him, you wouldn't have even known. You couldn't have done anything.

Debra Winger and Theresa Russell both give very good performances in this excellent suspense/mystery.
Theresa Russell plays a woman who seduces older, RICH men, marries them, and then kills them by making the deaths look like a natural cause. Debra Winger plays the woman on her tail who is determined to nab her.
Both of the leading ladies in this film are enticing and the film keeps you wanting more to the very end. Excellently portrays why the spider called the Black Widow has it's name.
