Amazing! A superb movie. Great acting, especially from the amazing Glenn Close. I'm surprised she didn't win the oscar that she was nominated for. She totally deserved the nomination.

Close and Douglas and Archer are riveting as the lead characters. The film brims with atmosphere and menace. The climax is terrifying and realistic. My favorite film of all time, to be sure. With a lesson for those who cheat: you never know who you might hook up with who has a knife problem. Expand

Regardless of how fearsome or eccentric Glenn Close and her character are, I find her fascinating. She's riveting. She allows for moments when you actually do feel for her, no matter how manipulative she has been. That's acting.

Fatal Attraction is a superb thriller with Douglss and Close. The movie is realistic and terrifiying because
of the intense suspense throughout the movie. This is one of the best thrillers from the 80's.

A classic thriller with very memorable scenes, Fatal Attraction features great performances by Close and Douglas, a chilling score by Jarre, and very off-kilter direction by Lyne (in a good way).

Lyne does a great job creating a creepy and unsettling atmopshere that really delivers in the end with a fantastic climax, but what deserves further attention is the build-up. Both well-written and well-directed, the build up to the pay-off really leaves you hanging on for more as you watch the story unfold. The characters are brilliantly crafted for max potential and what makes the film so effective in unsettling you is their authenticity. They feel like real people and this ultimately leads to the scares the film produces being that much more effective. Overall, it is not hard to see why audiences and critics alike took to Fatal Attraction, as it is a wonderfully crafted thriller that both truly gives you the chills. Expand
