Fatal Passion- 致命的誘惑 (1990)
FATAL PASSION (1990)
One of my new favorite posters for the 1990 thrillerama (thats thriller-drama), FATAL PASSION, starring Alex Man Chi-leung, Eddy Cheung Siu-fai, Nancy Chang Mei-chi, Cher Yeung Suet-yee, and a small bit by Lo Lieh. It's a sultry and sexy HK clone of Fatal Attraction. It even has the word FATAL in the title. How original?! But in true to HK cinema form, a hitman is included for the action fans.
Admittedly, I had never heard of the film until I saw this poster. It gave me such a wonderful feeling in my loins that I sprang into action and sought the film out. Lucky me, I found a torrent of the film somewhere in the deep dark nether regions of CAT III cyberspace. Mazel Tov to the uploader!
By no means a memorable film and I can say that with confidence because I spun it a few months back and today I couldn't tell you what the heck happened? But this poster is HOT!!!!
Hong Kong Cinema is like sex and pizza. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
I have had a love affair with Hong Kong Cinema for over 17 years now. I have accumulated over 3,000 HK films and many other HK film related items throughout those 17 years. With this blog, I am hoping to share my collection with other HK cinema fans. With my writing, I am trying to keep things light,fun,and tongue in cheek in hopes that my love affair with HK cinema continues and remains as fresh as the days I first fell in love with it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
