"Fatal Attraction" Redux
22 June 1999 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

If you've seen "Fatal Attraction" and enjoyed it, here's another version of basically the same story-line. Even though the goings-on are somewhat familiar, credit director Kristine Peterson's stylish direction for putting a few interesting new twists on it. The movie is tight and suspenseful, with some VERY HOT sex scenes thrown into the mix. Lisa Pescia makes a chilling and formidable villain and is definitely an actress to watch in the future. A very well-done "B-Movie," worth checking out.
