So terrible I got lost, confused and bored, and turned it off.
5 November 2016 | by banglaineySee all my reviews

When it comes to crappy B movies and bad horror, I'm somewhat of a connosoir. I can ignore things like jaunty cameras, bad acting, audio that doesn't line up with the movie, 1960's style special effects and even huge plot holes, as long as the story makes sense or has some sort of original idea.

This movie showed some bad acting, but none of the other things- the reason I couldn't stand it was mainly the bad directing and the poor story layout. I had to rewind it about 3 times to see what had happened the scene before because scene to scene did not flow very well or make much sense. The introduction of new characters was abrupt and largely unexplained, to the point where the audience must inevitably ask, who the hell is this guy?? Some movies might structure that sort of thing into the story- a mysterious character for instance. This is not what I saw in A Fatal Obsession. It was just sloppy all around. Bad camera angles, bad flow, bad emphasis on the wrong things... After rewinding a few times to try to piece together the plot niches, I got bored and said f it.

Skip this one, my horror cohorts, it is not worth the time to even try to find a redeeming quality here.
