With the intention to break free from the strict familial restrictions, a suicidal young woman sets up a marriage of convenience with a forty-year-old addict, an act that will lead to an outburst of envious love.
Mr Corbett is a cruel employer to Ben Partridge. One night on New Years Eve Ben is sent out to deliver some medicine. Along the way he wishes his master was dead, little knowing that the man he is delivering to is the Collector of Souls.
I accidentally bought this second hand thinking it was the Michael Douglas film and only realised a week later that it wasn't the "Fatal attraction" i was intending to buy. Sadly enough, it wasn't good mistake to have made as the film was 'wishy-washy' at the best of times and i didn't really see the point to the plot itself. The dialogue was boring and the straight forward and kind of obvious despite the odd scene here-and-there trying to 'up the tempo'. The acting didn't seem to have much feeling to it but in all fairness the script seemed to give them little material to work with. If it had a little more grit and a little more suspense surrounding others effected by the actions of the leading parts, the story may have come across with more substance.
At no point was the film gripping in any respect....one best avoided. I suppose i'll be having to search for my 'bunny boiler' elsewhere!
