FATAL ATTRACTION is a 1987 thriller in which a man's life and family are threatened after he has an affair with an psychologically disturbed woman.

Violence

There are a number of scenes of strong violence, including woman in a trance-like state stabbing a knife into her own leg, a woman's head being held under water in a bath tub, and a gunshot impact resulting in a splatter of blood against wall.

Sex

There are two strong sex scenes, which include sight of a clothed man thrusting into a woman and brief sight of a woman's nipple being kissed. In one scene oral sex is implied as a woman sinks to the floor, followed by a look of pleasure on a man's face.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') as well as a use of 'cocks***er'. There is also some moderate bad language, including uses of 'bitch' and 'faggot'.

FATAL ATTRACTION also includes sight of bleeding wrists, indicating self harm. The film also contains some moderate threat as the woman stalks the man and threatens his family. This includes the idea that she has boiled the family's pet rabbit.
