"I knew it would come to this," hisses Sharon when finding Lisa lurking around her beautiful Brentwood home--at which point I exclaimed, "Me too!"--and then the fun (and, for many, the entire purpose of the film) starts.

Another movie that demonstrates it's bad feng shui to place a glass coffee table beneath a chandelier beneath an attic that can't even support the weight of a blond wearing little more than the whipped-cream bikini she sported in 'Varsity Blues.'

This is a guilty pleasure from start to finish and there is absolutely nothing new here but Obsessed is brilliant fun.

So hammy and overwrought that it's actually hysterically entertaining.

Enjoyably rubbish thriller enlivened by strong performances and a decent climax that just about compensates for the film's failures in pacing and plotting.

Obsessed, is short on dimension and subtlety, but it turns into a mess believable enough to keep us invested.

The immaculate Beyoncé Knowles and devastatingly handsome Idris Elba attack their silly parts with a ferocity the gives this dumpy little movie the spark it needs to be compelling.

A compelling reminder that Hell still hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially when she's a crazy, two-faced psycho.

What do you get when you put two of Hollywood's worst actresses, Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter in the same movie? A surprisingly decent little paint by the numbers thriller.

a grandly sensational, relentlessly exploitative B-movie revival of the highest order

Shades of gray? Moral ambiguity? Who needs 'em. Obsessed traffics in catharsis--we aren't here to learn about the human condition, we just want to watch Beyonce tromp a tramp.

Director Shill doesn't get fancy building tension from his nonsensical male-anxiety mayhem, allowing Knowles's beguiling fierceness and Larter's sexualized cunning to carry much of the prurient load.

When wronged wife and crazy lady finally let loose on each other in the film's final scenes, Obsessed becomes a wildly campy and deliciously trashy must-see.

Fans of the Final Destination flicks should enjoy seeing how Larter's horror roots are revisited in the over-the-top climax of this trashy exercise in glossy B-movie-making.

Elba grimaces, Larter is seductive, and Beyonce says, 'You better do something about this woman, or I will.' That better be enough because that's all this one's got to offer.
