Wooden performances seal the fate of this film
19 December 1998 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Jan Michael Vincent puts in one of Hollywood's most wooden performances as a philandering husband bizarrely determined to resist the obvious charms of his wife, the gorgeous Ty Randolph.

Randolph manages to skilfully combine poignancy and a charged eroticism to her role as the neglected and ultimately disturbed wife.

Ultimately, the poor plot and acting performances of the other principals condemns Deadly Embrace to mediocrity.
