Fatal Affair (2020)



Critic Consensus: As basic as its title, Fatal Affair gets lost between "so bad it's good" and "barely there."

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (12)

You won't make a fatal - or even near-fatal - error if you stream it.

Top Critic

Fatal Affair never builds to the dramatic desperation its genre requires. Never becomes more than the sum of its parts. That's a crime. More of a crime than any felony in the movie.

July 17, 2020 | Full Review…

If a thriller is only about as good as its villain, Fatal Affair is in sad shape.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Exactly the kind of barely-there diversion that you might have flipped past on the Lifetime channel in days of yore.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

To call this a Netflix Original movie is only half-correct.

July 16, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

One word into a typical line of dialogue, and the audience can mouth the rest of it along with the characters.
