A great thriller came out on September 11. 1987 it was “Fatal Attraction” starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. It was a movie that really scared me all about a happily married man who lets his guard down for one weekend and has a fast fling with an obsessed woman. I must say that Close played the role of Alex Forrester so well I was completely spooked. They sort of draw you into the movie because you think all right so this guy Dan Gallagher slipped a little and now he’s going back home and that is it.
His wife Beth played by Anne Archer calls from the country to let him know she’ll be looking at a house they want to buy there. Then comes another call and it is the obsessed woman who is not happy he has gone while she was asleep. Fool that he is, he returns to see her again and then the nightmare really begins. It is up to you to find out what unravels in the mind of a woman who does not want to take no for an answer.
The movie was a box office hit. There are quite a few scenes in the movie which are so disturbing that I would wonder why any man who has seen this movie would still decide to have an affair. Surely not if they really love their families. Of the most disturbing scenes was the one where the man’s wife still doesn’t know about the affair and the family comes home from visiting the wife’s parents to find their little daughter’s bunny boiling away in the kitchen. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a thriller fan just be prepared to be shocked.
