This "chemistry" just mixes bad with bad
21 March 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Once again, producer Roger Corman rips off a movie made by a major Hollywood studio, this time FATAL ATTRACTION. Though this rip-off claims to have a lot more sexual material than the original. Don't believe it. Surprisingly, there is a lot less sex and nudity in this movie than you would think, and the little sexual material there is is filmed in a way that we don't get to see much juicy stuff. Part of that's due to the movie's curious style, which is to shoot in rooms in near total darkness when anyone in real life would turn a light on! The movie also looks bad from a grainy look to everything that the photography films. Marc Singer gives a real bad performance here - he seems to be trying to imitate Kevin Bacon, specifically a third-rate imitation. The worst thing about the movie may be how every scene feels extremely flat - you won't feel any tension, eroticism, or anything else apart from boredom. The last few minutes of the movie do end things in a way that you probably won't predict, but this is too little too late to save the entire enterprise.
