Makes "Fatal Attraction" look like a kitsch romance
This Hong Kong thriller tells a very similar story to "Fatal Attraction", only that the Hollywood movie looks extremely harmless compared to it.
As the husband breaks up his affair and returns to his wife, the left woman begins to terrorise the family in a massively sadistic way. At one point, she even throws acid at her ex-lover's wife who gets hurt as bad that doctors have to amputate both her legs (sic!) not to mention the facial wounds she suffers from the attack. Compared with the raw climax, "Fatal Attraction" falls also flat.
Sometimes, "Infatuation" appears too misanthropic; a thoroughly unpleasant movie which stands as the ultimate and by far most brutal thriller about an affair gone awry. Rating: 7 out of 10.
