Glenn Close Laments 'Fatal Attraction' Role

June 5th, 2013 6:43pm EDT
Glenn Close
Glenn Close regrets portraying a knife-wielding stalker in Fatal Attraction as she is convinced her most famous film role contributed to the stigmatization of mental health issues.

Close won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of disturbed Alex Forrest, a woman who pursues a married man, played by Michael Douglas, and even boils his family's pet rabbit after he ends their affair in the 1987 thriller.

The film gave rise to the unflattering term 'bunny boiler' for an unstable woman, and Close, whose sister and nephew both suffer mental health problems, insists she now wishes she had don...

Glenn Close is furious after footage of her visiting an aircraft carrier ended up in a series of lewd videos by a disgraced Navy Captain - and she insisted she's "distraught" over her inclusion in the clips.

The "Fatal Attraction" star is seen in a string of films made by Captain Owen Honors of the USS Enterprise, one of America's premiere aircraft carriers.

The video, which Honors claims he made to boost Navy officers' morale, shows young women showering, overweight men in bikinis and jokes about proctology exams, while Close is seen in a montage at the end of the clip wearing a Navy hat...

Obsession can come in many forms; one can become fixated with an individual, an object or a feeling.

5 Movies Guys Shouldn't Watch

June 24th, 2010 9:06am EDT
Thelma & Louise
It’s easy to pick out movies that don’t particularly sit well with many American men. Cue the Chick Flicks. Beaches. Steel Magnolias. Waiting to Exhale. Anything with Meg Ryan. But some movies just flat out scare the bejesus out of men. Here are five movies that do just that, and possibly more.

Fatal Attraction: The premise: Man (Michael Douglas), although happily married, begins an affair with Other Woman (Glenn Close). Other Woman falls desperately in love with Man. Man is then turned off and tries to end affair. Other Woman says, “Oh hells no!” and turns into Psycho Chick. Psycho Chick ...

How Chelsea Cain is Eviscerating Serial Killer Fiction

September 22nd, 2009 7:30am EDT
Chelsea Cain
Let's face it. Our culture has a disconcerting fascination with serial killers; the more perverted, maniacal, and heinous the better. Whether on or off the screen, real or fictional, we crave that which we are simultaneously terrified of, death. The more torturous and gore ridden methods ranking highest on the list. We make these figures into iconic cultural figures that blur the lines of reality. Many of the serial killer characters created by Hollywood are built around the personalities of real killers and manage to alter their crimes into entertainment. The name Hannibal Lecter is a...

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

Ten Underrated Thrillers

October 17th, 2008 10:12am EDT
The Descent
Horror movies are some of the most consistent pieces of the film industry. Sure there have been highs and lows in the genre, and resurgences have come and gone, but one thing remains true: people will always yearn for those cinematic chills.

The demand, however big it may be, is always constant. The golden age of cinema through the 60s brought on big studio monster movies, sly noir thrillers, and of course, Hitchcockian suspense (a subgenre, respectively). The 1970s, arguably the paramount epoch of cinema, period, saw the expansion of the genre and gave filmgoers some of the best nail...

Allison No Longer Has To Hide Her Psychic Abilities On 'Medium'

Medium
In the season three finale of "Medium," the future looked very bleak for the Dubois family. Allison and Joe were both out of a job, and Allison was publicly known as a psychic. Manuel Devalos lost the DA position to his once-friend, Tom Van Dyke.

This season continued the despairing trend by having Ariel be tormented at school for her mother's special powers and Allison being blacklisted in general by the police due to Van Dyke's dislike of her. Joe had very few options for a job, and none of them were interested in hiring him.

It is safe to say that the end of last season and a...
