Storyline

Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by Karsten Kastelan

Ridiculously bad movie, but what I really want to know is...
14 August 2005 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

OK, "Fascination" is an astonishingly, ridiculously bad movie, for all the reasons that the last few reviewers have described. But did you notice something suspicious about the first several reviews here on IMDb? They're all absolutely glowing! Did the studio pay people to go online and write positive reviews? If so, is that a new way to make money? Movie review mercenary? I'm almost tempted to volunteer my services, but I don't think there's enough money in Hollywood to make me say nice things about a movie like "Fascination." That is, unless it could be re-released as a comedy. Now there's an idea I could get behind! Just put a laugh track behind it, and market it as a "side-splitting, laugh-out-loud romp that the whole family will enjoy." The trailer could show the scene where an entire cabin blows up from the frighteningly explosive force of one small propane burner. "You'll explode with laughter!"
