Fatal Affair [2020] ★½

You’ve seen this movie a zillion times before: married woman (Nia Long, wasted) is reunited with her college boyfriend (Omar Epps). They kiss. She regrets it. He doesn’t. Surprise: he’s also an obsessed stalker who would stop at nothing to get what he wants. I’d call this Netflix film a cross between “Fatal Attraction” and a lot of movies of the same genre, but you probably knew that already. The result is a thriller that buries itself in endless clichés and never truly delivers something worth remembering (everything you need to know is in the trailer). It’s not completely awful or unwatchable, but it’s recycled and doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Skip it.
