What's it about
The Seduction deals with a young anchorwoman who finally makes it big earns herself a crazy, obsessed stalker fan. A movie ensues!
Is it good movie?
For some people, this movie might be a fun blast from the past.

For me, it was torture.

If you dig that old early 80's porn, with the teased hair, tons of makeup, and big hairy..enthusiasm, you might dig this. It's a lame old cliche'd story, with some stupid characters earning attention from a stalker. Really, the whole thing is nothing more than a constant state of waiting for Morgan Fairchild to get naked. And she does, a few times, but I've got to be honest, it wasn't enough to help me 'enjoy' this flick.

Fairchild's character's a bit of a ditzy, airy type, who really draws a lot of attention to herself, saying she likes to be watched, and taking naked swims. This isn't to say the whole movie's a complete wash. The last scene, when Fairchild decides to seduce the stalker and finally take him out, is actually pretty good. Unfortunately, 10 good minutes do not a good film make, if you know what I mean. The acting is passable, the direction is bland and rigid, the soundtrack is old, and the tension is relatively low until the last scenes.

Again..just because a former pin-up queen in her prime is often naked, does not make it a good film. Got me?
Video / Audio
Anchor Bay rarely disappoints with video transfers. This movie is no exception, its 2.35:1, 16:9 widescreen transfer is simply gorgeous.

We get a mono soundtrack. Disappointing, but what can you do?
The Extras
We get a lame, often quiet audio commentary from the producers Irwin Yablans and Bruce Curtism as well as director David Schmoeller.

Three featurettes are also included, looking back at the Seduction, Remembering the locations, and The Seduction and the law (which is silly, considering this movie's intent, it encourages help for those who are actually stalked, when people paid money to see this girl get stalked).

Also, a trailer. Which was actually pretty good!
Last Call
This movie is a lame, soap opera type vehicle for a starlet to get naked. You like this idea? Perhaps you too will find yourself seduced by the Seduction.
