    Nearly everything about Fascination feels overdone. At its delirious worst, it's as pungent a Parisian cheese shop, offering a cornucopia of laughable scenes.
  2. The sort of soft-core, erotic thriller that would benefit from a lot more trash and a lot more sex.
  3. It plays like a soft-core-porn potboiler left over from the 1970s about a hot vampire chick.

    The less said about the story's twists and turns the better, except to warn that they become increasing preposterous with each passing minute.

    So tedious is Fascination that the plot, the embittered characters and, yes, the sexuality are merely insipid.

    I'm afraid this is one of THOSE movies, one where ''plot" is another word for ''gratuitous sex scene."

    Glacially paced, self-consciously acted and narratively risible.
  8. 10
    A stupendously torpid thriller without a single redeeming quality.
  9. 10
    Avoiding this lump of low-camp lion poo couldn't be easier, what with MGM dumping it into a lone Manhattan venue, but if you're in the mood for some unscripted belly laughs or a catnap, Fascination should do the trick.
