MGM has released an erotic thriller, starring Jacqueline Bisset. "FASCINATION" has its moments and Ms. Bisset is still gorgeous, but it's not as steamy or interesting as MGM's "WILD ORCHID" and that's not a compliment! After Scott's father dies mysteriously, his mom, Bisset, comes home from a trip with a new boyfriend. Scott knows something's not right and sets out to solve this mystery.
For a thriller, the film moves too slowly, and the sex scenes are more laughable than titillating.
MGM has preserved the film's 2.35:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. While there are numerous exotic settings, ripe with potential, the image never fully compliments them. Colors are solid, but never vibrant.
MGM has provided a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Surrounds are rarely used, however, the front mix offers many separation effects. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.
A few extras are included, but none worthwhile. The alternate ending doesn't stand out as different from the original ending, even upon multiple tries to find a difference.
