Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We can't stay interested, much less fascinated."
‑ Mark Salisbury, Time Out New York
"Klaus Menzel's laughable screenplay is not enhanced by direction not much more accomplished than that of a typical Cinemax late-night adult series."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"At its delirious worst, it's as pungent a Parisian cheese shop, offering a cornucopia of laughable scenes."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"A sweaty bit of smut disguised as high-class suspense."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies
"The most fascinating thing about this movie is why they thought anyone would want to see it."
‑ Brooke Holgerson, Boston Phoenix
"The only magnetism generated by ersatz black-widow Fascination is that perilous urge to slow down and peek at the roadside wreck."
‑ Eddie Cockrell, Variety
"Contrived and pointless."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"...Fascination generally vacillates between being utterly ridiculous and flat-out boring."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Lust. Betrayal. Revenge. Greed. Murder. Somehow, all of these things become dull in the preposterous and yet decidedly un-fascinating "Fascination.""
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Here is an erotic thriller that instead of sizzling, fizzles."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The presence of Jacqueline Bisset is the only reason the little man hasn't left the chair."
‑ George Powell, San Francisco Chronicle
"So tedious is Fascination that the plot, the embittered characters and, yes, the sexuality are merely insipid."
‑ Kim Morgan, L.A. Weekly
"Fascination would be a good title for a movie that was in any way interesting."
‑ Kevin Allison, Premiere Magazine
"Laughably cheap and cheesy..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"It's a film that fully lives up to its title, because you'll leave the theater fascinated that Fascination ever made it to the big screen."
