Fatally attractive film, where family, is no stronger a bond
I love these small known films based on true events, though I know bits would of been slightly altered if that was an understatement. The film stars the late Jerome Ehlers, one of my favorite actors, and I was shocked to hear about his passing. Ehlers, who I consider a good actor, slips into this role perfectly as a dangerous, on the edge, handsome, impulsive, could be, psycho, killing women. He falls in love with a woman (Exorcist's Blair) who starts to suspect, he's not the guy she thinks he is, as their sexually charged relationship intensifies. They take a vacation. Ehler's character, an ex con, who's great at shirking, and outrunning authorities, I must point out, gets involved with a late teen, (it's the bikini) makes out with her that night. The next morning, she winds up dead. Was it Ehlers? Could be? He hardly reacts when seeing her photo in the paper. Ehler's character has violent tendencies, and we see this is his unlawful activities. On the whole, I really enjoyed this movie, that gets very climactic, with a shocking admittance, as the real truth comes out, which I never expected, though I really liked. Blair, I must say I liked too, and there are some funny and tasteful moments, one involving Ehler's attire that a young punk criticizes. He does get quite intimate with the young lass, before her demise, that small time actress, actually a comedian. We have other suspects that come into play of course, where I like how thrillers can be formed from true stories, without trying to be thrillers. I mean, if that's what went down, that's what went down. Truly recommended Aussie pic.
