Review: Fatal Temptation, at first glance, left nothing to my imagination. I immediately prepared myself for the usual fare that erotic thrillers of its class routinely offer. As expected, the elements were in full force. The sultry and seductive Loredana Romito stars as the main character, Silvia Piatelli, a woman married to a two-timing hotel owner. After a questionable auto accident involving Silvia’s hubby, she makes an even MORE questionable employment choice by hiring as a chauffeur the young motorcyclist (Alessio) involved in the same crash. This perplexing and cringe-worthy event is done simply to introduce Alessio, who soon becomes Silvia’s lover after she discovers her husband and his mistress sexing it up. Not content with having Silvia in the sack, Alessio begins relations with Cossetta, a young woman working as a cook in the hotel that Silvia now manages due to her husband’s injury. Soon we’re treated to the consequential deaths of the husband, Cossetta, and Alessio. All in all, Fatal Temptation is just what I expect of a Little Caesar’s pizza; cheesy, satisfying in small amounts, and done on a budget. The story rarely engages, the characters are almost entirely forgettable, and the English dubbing is paltry. A few scenes are baffling; for example, both Silvia and her husband catch each other in sexual encounters with other people in their own home. If you’re gonna cheat, at least have the discretion to take it somewhere else, especially if you *own* a hotel. Some scenes are just downright bizarre. After Silvia persuades Alessio to push her husband off a cliff, she laughs hysterically before the corpse even gets soggy. This prompts Alessio to slap some sense into her which strangely evolves into sex against a tree at the crime scene. That said, I must say that Loredana Romito is the best part. Not just because her body is SMOKING hot, but I enjoyed seeing her character change from a loving wife to a scorned woman who adeptly manipulates and eliminates those around her. When Silvia methodically puts a bullet through Cossetta’s head, its a significant moment because Silvia has now gone from just being an instigator of death to someone who can bring it to people she believes may be working against her. There was a chance of personal redemption where a naked Silvia, straddling Alessio in bed, reveals her desire to be in a faithful, loving relationship with him so long as he remains silent about the murder she committed. But Alessio, unknown to Silvia, grieved the loss of Cossetta when he disposed of her body and car under the harsh command of an emboldened Silvia. In an attempt to avenge Cossetta, he shares her fate when Silvia bores a tunnel through his skull with a bullet as well. The film leaves us with Silvia pondering her life on the shore. Three people are dead because of her; two of them perished at her own hands. Is she still searching for true love, or has the taste of blood forever changed her? 5/10 stars for this movie but Romito gets them all.
