Early '80's tv blonde bombshell Morgan Fairchild made her bid for big screen stardom playing a news anchorwoman who finds herself the object of obsession from the man who lives nearby.

Avoid like the plague. The dvd transfer is in pretty bad shape. It's fullscreen, dark, muddy and just looks grotty. If you must see this film, get the Region 1 release. It's widescreen and looks fantastic.

The film itself, plays like a TVM with added skin. It's not a great film by any stretch of the imagination with lackluster performances and uneven pacing.

Morgan fairchild plays a beautiful newscaster who becomes the obsession of a deranged stalker/fan who wont take no for an answer!
One of my favourite b movie thriller from the 80's,i just love everything about this movie & the cast are excellent- Morgan fairchild (in the best role ive seen her in) as the terrorised newscaster Jamie,Michael sarrazin as her concerned love interest & Andrew stevens who steals the show with his captivating performance as the stalker! If you appreciate cheesy thrillers then you will love this one!!

A good thriller, eighties style. It cashed in on the popularity of Morgan Fairchild at that time.

HASH(0x8f18363c) out of 5 stars Morgan-Hot Stuff 25 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is Morgan Fairchild's finest moment on film, and you see lots of her if you catch my drift.... The plot and supporting cast are better than passable, this isn't a totally bad flick. Fairchild is a TV news broadcaster who has a stalker, a much younger man who is obsessed with her. At first she humors him and doesn't think much of his bizarre behavior--until he butcher-knifes her boyfriend while she's "entertaining" him in her hottub. Mad Morgan realizes she has to take matters into her own hands, which she does, with a 12-guage rifle. Lots of nudity here, but tastefully done for a tasteful lady. The Seduction is for Morgan Fairchild fans only.

HASH(0x8e33d36c) out of 5 stars "If I can't have you, no one can." 10 Jan. 2007
By Sarah Bellum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
(3.5/5 stars) Andrew Stevens, that handsome staple of `70s-`80s American television, plays Derek, a young photographer who is obsessed with the beautiful Jamie Douglas (Morgan Fairchild). When Derek begins sending Jamie presents and calling her, she assumes he watches her on the local TV news, where she is a newscaster. She has no idea he is her neighbor and that he photographs her swimming nude in her pool. His obsession evolves from voyeurism into an active pursuit when he begins to pay her surprise visits and invades her home with the intent of making her love him. Yet still he is only able to photograph her because his ingrained passivity prevents him from acting on his lustful urges. Only in his delusional fantasy is he capable of making love to her. I actually like this movie. No, it isn't Oscar material, but it is above average as far as B movies go. The acting is adequate, the story doesn't stray from the central plot and yes, Morgan Fairchild appears nude (looks fantastic too). Apparently Jef Films released a DVD of this film a couple years ago, though I did not buy it then because I know the quality of their DVDs is extremely poor. When I saw Anchor Bay had recently released a DVD of the film, I did not hesitate to purchase it (for a lower price, I might add) because I know they take great pride in the quality of their DVDs. I am very glad I waited to purchase this because the Anchor Bay transfer is outstanding. For a movie that is twenty-five years old, it looks great. There are also a couple documentaries on the disc, though I have not watched those yet. The only grievance I have about the disc is the lack of subtitles. I'm not sure what Anchor Bay has against them, but I have several DVDs from them and none has subtitles. They aren't imperative for this movie, though sometimes they help clarify the dialogue. I'd recommend this for fans of Andrew Stevens (if there are any), Morgan Fairchild, B movies or even anyone feeling nostalgic for the `70s and `80s.

HASH(0x8e33d8f4) out of 5 stars Thank You Anchor Bay 15 Feb. 2007

I LOVE this movie, I was in high school when this came out and the theater was packed opening night due to the fact that Morgan 'bares all' and she did! But I loved the movie even though it was campy at the time it came out, and its even more camp now. Speaking of camp, I love Colleen Camp in this film, the wisecraking best friend was a perfect role for her I only wish that her character would have been expanded to the end of the film. I would like to have seen her come in and battle Derek at the end instead of his mousy assisant. My other compliant has always been Michael Sarrizan, who has to be the worst actor ever to grace the screen, in fact the roles should have been reversed, Michael should have played Derek and Andrew should have been Brandon, Those are my only two complaints about the story, but the campy long held camara shots of Morgan in various stages of fear and looking great are just to funny, this is early 80's camp at its best.... Now Finally a quality DVD of the film. Thanks Anchor Bay

HASH(0x8e216408) out of 5 stars Thanks Anchor Bay! 23 Jan. 2007
By Mr Doug Gordon - Published on Amazon.com

I was happy and surprised to see "The Seduction" finally released on DVD! I have the 1985 Media Video release of this movie, and this Anchor Bay DVD version blows it away! I didn't realize or remember this movie being filmed in cinemascope. Anchor Bay has cleaned up the picture quality, remastered the soundtrack, and brought it back to it's original glory, in it's original aspect ratio. VHS releases never did the film any justice. There was even an "EP cheapie" version of this movie released back in the '90s. One thing that I've noticed about this film is that the telephone is one of the leading stars of the plot. There is a lot of ringing and screen time devoted to focusing on the phone. The actors seem to be really slow on picking up the phone after it rings a few times too. This is one of the charms of this movie, along with it starring Morgan Fairchild. I think the director was using the phone to build suspence. Nothing like those old AT&T/Western Electric phones to do the trick! There are a variety of them too, from the classic 2500 Traditional, to the Princess phone! Another movie that used this technique was "When A Stranger Calls" from 1980. There are some added features, like a few interviews with the director/producer, and the original movie trailer. There is even a mini reproduction of the movie poster within the keepcase, for a nice added touch. This DVD will not disappoint for fans of Morgan Fairchild, and early '80s b-movie fare. It's been a long-standing fave of mine since 1981!

HASH(0x8e216084) out of 5 stars A Must for Morgan Fans 30 Mar. 2005
By A. Minutella - Published on Amazon.com
OK I'm probably being too generous with 3 stars for this "erotic" thriller. Make no mistake, this is a poorly acted, directed, written, and photographed thriller that is seriously lacking in thrills.

However, I'm being generous for the lovely Morgan Fairchild. While not an Oscar-caliber actress, she is a striking presence nonetheless, and anyone who enjoyed her vixenish charms on the TV show "Flamingo Road" will want to check this out.

Ironically, both Morgan Fairchild and Andrew Stevens teamed up again years later in another similiar thriller called "Body Chemistry III: Point of Seduction." Also, Anchor Bay is planning on releasing this film late in 2005 on DVD with special extras; hopefully they will get interviews and/or commentary from Morgan...if so, I'll be buying!
