Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

The Fatal Attraction premise - deranged man/woman obsessively pursues reluctant partner - became a staple of the straight-to-video market. This is one of the better examples, even though it is still a slightly sordid slice of exploitation. Yancy Butler plays the unhinged ex-wife of architect Nick Mancuso, who wheedles her way back into his life by befriending his new wife, Suzy Amis. Butler is suitably over-the-top as the woman scorned, while the no-frills direction from accomplished B-movie director Mark L Lester (Commando, Night of the Running Man) ensures that the action never flags.
