Decent thriller

Author: Ed Uthman (uthman@airmail.net) from Houston, Texas
12 September 1999

On the face of it, INTERLOCKED (as titled on cable) is a cheap sexploitation fed to fans of the soap opera, "The Bold and the Beautiful" whose cast members populate this film. The opening scenes feature the signature prolonged (but not especially titillating) sex scenes one associates with Playboy Channel soft-porn productions. However, if the viewer will just stick with it, this turns out to be a pretty tense thriller with a good cast. Jeff Trachta is effective in his transformation from the self-confident golden child to the tortured wrongfully accused man whose life has been ruined. Schae Harrison is equally good at going from charming flirt to murderous ueber-bitch. This is definitely worth a viewing.

the internet has never been so scary!

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** I found out about this movie by mistake. It is a pretty enjoyable movie though. Eva, a lonely computer hacker meets a man for a one night stand over the internet. She seems to have done this in order to have a relationship, but the guy is only interested in sex. The first scene is quite violent, with Eva being choked, punched and left like a tramp on a motel bed, wearing little to nothing!

Eva then meets another guy, Michael, whilst fixing up a computer problem in his company. He seems genuine and friendly and Eva somehow gets his email and starts chatting with him. She asks him if he is married and he sais 'no' - although in reality, he has a wife who is expecting any second! Eva starts to become clingly with Michael, but obviously to save face, he cuts all contact with her. This leaves Eva feeling like a cheap tramp again and something clicks and makes her want revenge. She seems to be taking out all her anger (aka the last guy who used her) onto Michael. She hacks into his computer, ruins his finances, messes with his job and wife - and then becomes deadly.

By the end of the movie, it is evident that Eva has a few psychological problems and has over-reacted towards Michael. Although you do kinda feel for Eva, because she does seem nice, you also think that she's gone too far.

If you like stories about revenge then you'll love this movie. Some of the scenes, although aimed at being scary, come off as being funny - because the whole idea of someone getting so worked up over nothing is ridiculous.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this one if you like the internet, and you've been cheated on before! Its a bit of harmless fun.

A regular plot with a bad cast

Author: rcltasman from NZ

Even though I think this movie doesn't deserve more than a 4 out of 10, I'd say that with just a little more dedication from the director and a better-chosen cast (maybe real actors instead of soap opera stars), this movie could have been saved to become at least somehow entertaining. Yet some of the actors seem to try so hard to play their roles as well as possible that they overact it. Others, in exchange, act as if they were reading every line directly from a script. And not to mention the goofs -like the birth of a baby that is evidently more than three weeks old, just as an example- and plot holes that a good director would have never left in a movie.

If you try to look over those details, I think that you could enjoy this 90-minute movie, as the story is nonetheless interesting.

Makes the grade, but not with especially high marks.

6/10

We've seen dozens of movies redo the "Fatal Attraction" theme and this one doesn't add anything original or memorable to what has gone before. On the other hand, Schae Harrison, Jeff Trachta and some of the supporting cast put a great deal of effort forth into making this a watchable film, and that pays off. Fans of the erotic thriller type of movie most likely will find it entertaining to various degrees.

Surprisingly Fun

10/10

Caught this on cable. Thought it was another soft core TV movie, but it really surprised me. Great leading cast, especially Trachta and Harrison. Both were very believable. Several very intense moments and some funny ones, too. I also thought the girl who played Trachta's assistant was a special stand out. The scene where he confronts her about her crush on him is pretty hilarious. I was surprised there was so much humor in it, but it balanced the more intense scenes nicely. The story was compelling. There were a couple of twists and turns that I didn't see coming -- another nice surprise. I really thought that cat was going to get it when I first saw it. Animals usually don't fare so well in this kind of thing. All in all, very classy and well made for a B thriller.

the worst

1/10
Author: Mario Pio from Venezia, Italy

i've watched this movie (movie?) casually and i've never stop watching because is so ridiculous any dog can play this act and will be better then the actors (actors?)of this bad remake of the Fatal Attraction there is no directing, no playing, only an unlucky copy of the Adrian Lyne movie if you have doubt to suicide watch this and you can choose...for "yes"

i can't imagine people that went to cinema to see this rubbish; maybe someone that had an empty afternoon and choose the first cinema near house to stay 2 hours with some others to forget problems but it's hard to go back home relaxed
