Movie Info

The Seduction a z-grade erotic thriller, tells the story of a TV newswoman spied upon and stalked by an obsessed fan. Jamie (Morgan Fairchild) is a beautiful, successful career woman. Derek (Andew Stevens) is an obsessed psychopath who watches her and attempts to become part of her life. When Jamie discovers his true intentions, she must fight for her life. The Seduction, is standard exploitation movie fare, with a fair amount of sex, violence and nudity. None of the characters are particularly believable, and the performances by both Fairchild and Stevens are sub-par.

Audience Reviews for The Seduction

This is one is hard to make it through. It falls under the thriller category, but it is very thrilling or suspenseful. The story is dumb and predictable right from the start. Everything is on the table in the first few minutes of the movie. This is just bad writing, which leaves no mystery or complexity to hold the viewer's interest. The acting is not particularly strong, but with such paper thin characters, they have nothing to work with. The main selling point here is seeing Morgan Fairchild swimming, bathing, and changing. It is almost like the writers took those three scenes and wrote a patchwork story around them. Even when it comes to showcasing their eye candy the movie lacks skill. The scenes that highlight Fairchild's looks lack style. She does not vulnerable enough to invoke tension and suspense, like a good thriller should, nor does it titillate or steam things up in a memorable fashion. At least things pick up a little near the end, as the main character fights back. Even then, it is highly predictable and exhibits unskilled direction.
