The Seduction (1982)

Time for a semi-erotic stalker story starring Morgan Fairchild and Michael Sarrazin/Andrew Stevens? Why not!

I was expecting less quality. More B-movie. More nudity. But there wasn't all that much of the latter, and the quality was way better than expected! They build up the mood masterfully - both the intimacy and the threat. That of a stalker, a man who believes that the main character, a news­caster, is in love with him, and though he starts the stalking with good intentions it quickly gets out of hand.

I think that's part of what makes this one stand out among similar competition: that the bad guy's not inherently bad. Relations are complicated, and the plot is a butterfly effect of small and correlated events.

The script's perfect; fleshed-out in moderation. The cast is small, all with designated roles. The sets are classy and luxurious. The panning's slow and tasteful - or drawn out and foreboding when they go for that.

All in all it's a thriller with everything the name implies, and a complex intrigue that weaves around the characters, and couples, and paves the way for an inevitable bedside tragedy.

This might be a classic. I've seen it before too, a few years back. Think I appreciated it a lot more this time around.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome
