This anthology series is about powerful, sexy and dangerous women inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels. The half-hour program features stories inspired by such noir classics as Double Indemnity (1944) and Pulp Fiction (1994) and classic thriller TV series like The Twilight Zone (1959). In each of stand-alone episode, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile. Every episode is introduced by a mysterious and enigmatic host, Lilith, played by Tanit Phoenix Copley, and features different casts and plot lines, some of which are intertwined as part of the series overall mythology.

The title "Femme Fatales" is not a correct French phrase. "Femme fatale" means "deadly woman," but "femmes" is the plural of "woman" in French. The word "fatale" is never made plural; there's no such word as "fatales" in French. The title, as is, would be translated "deadlys woman." See more »

Femme Fatales is a truly great anthology series and I'm not sure why it's not getting all the love it deserves. I've never seen an anthology show done quite this well before since The Twilight Zone...and that includes The Outer Limits, new and old. If you can imagine a sexy version of the Twilight Zone mashing up different genres with a sultry host and cool characters, then you have some idea of the show "Femme Fatales." There are great special appearances by cult stars such as, Agnus Scrimm & Paul Mazursky, to name some of my favorites. The other thing that deserves a shout-out is the cast. The acting is terrific and the "femme fatales" usually aren't only smoldering, but they're also really good actresses as well. Femme Fatales is way more edgy and entertaining than previous stabs at doing anthologies in the last few years, like Masters of Horror and Fear Itself, which I wanted to love, but kinda blew. For example, "Behind Locked Doors" is a woman in prison romp reminiscing 70's exploitation and grindhouse. "Something Like Murder" is an old school sexy noir. "Haunted" is a straight up horror episode in the realm of Paranormal State type shows. "Help Me Rhonda" is a home invasion thriller and a sort of prequel to "Behind Locked Doors" which I've never seen done in anthology before where episodes actually connect to each other even though they're different stories. "Speed Date" is a hilarious action comedy. "Girls Gone Dead" is a sex charged revenge episode. Seeing how they tackled all the different genres this season, I can't wait to see what they do with season 2. The one thing I've come to expect with "Femme Fatales," is expect the unexpected.
