Trivia

While a lot of artistic license was taken in the making of this movie, it is based on the 1989 murder of Lisa Cihaski in Wausau, Wisconsin by 20-year old Lori Esker. Esker's boyfriend, Bill Buss, broke off his relationship with Esker and began dating Cihaski. Buss and Cihaski became engaged. Esker left school one night and drove 150 miles to the workplace of Cihaski and strangled her with a belt. The belt used belonged to the victim, Cihaski. Her engagement ring was taken off her hand by Esker. Esker then drove back to school in River Falls. Esker pleaded self defense, however, the act of strangulation showed intent. She was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in 1990. Esker was the Dairy Princes, like in the movie, however, Cihaski was a former Homecoming Queen. See more »

`Fatal Attraction' in a Farm
18 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Kevin Reese (Kyle Secor) is a simple and good man in love with Beth (Tracey Gold). He fights to pay the debts left by his father and recover the family's farm from the bank. One day, he helps Cheryl (Courtney Thorne-Smith), a beautiful and deranged girl elected the `princess of the lactic'. Cheryl develops an obsessive passion for Kevin, and tries everything to be with him, transforming Kevin and Beth's lives in `hell on earth'. In the introduction of this film, the viewer is informed that this story is based on a true fact. Courtney Thorne-Smith is really gorgeous and has a great performance, but the story is very common and does not bring any surprise. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Obsessão Fatal' (`Fatal Obsession')
