Format: DVD
"Extremities" is almost like a filmed play, with a marvelous 4-person cast, and it keeps one's interest even though most of the action takes place in 2 rooms of a small house. This very low budget production may have many flaws, but it is at times riveting viewing. Farrah Fawcett followed her critically acclaimed "The Burning Bed" with this film, and once again proved that she was much more than a "Charlie's Angels" pin-up. Along with Fawcett, James Russo is Joe, a truly creepy villain, and Alfre Woodard and Diana Scarwid are both terrific as Fawcett's housemates. Woodard is one of Hollywood's most beautiful and underrated actresses, and gives yet another wonderful performance, and Scarwid is very moving as she tells her personal history, and how she dealt with a similar trauma.
This is a character study of a depraved man who sets his mind on terrorizing a woman, first by assaulting her in a car, and then in a home invasion. The violence that ensues sometimes feels quite real, and the interest in the film lies mostly in the reactions by the 3 women affected by the psychological rape, and the fear of being killed by this monstrous man. It is a curious film about power and submission that doesn't always work, but the parts that do are excellent, and definitely worth watching.
Written by William Mastrosimone based on his play, and directed by Robert M. Young, "Extremities" is 89 minutes long, is often intense, and has great interaction between its 4 fine actors.

This 1986 violent drama begins with a young woman, Marjorie[Farrah Fawcett], being abducted at knifepoint and forced to drive to a secluded spot where she manages to escape from her masked would be rapist. The police basically say they cannot do anything –even if they caught the guy. A month later and the rapist Joe [James Russo] returns to her home after her two female house mates have left for the day. Will he manage to succeed this time or will she once more manage to escape or even turn the tables on him, or will the friends return to save the day or just further complicate matters?
This film is one of those anti rape movies that seemed to spring up in the early–mid 80’s and is upsetting in its bleak portrayal as it twists and pummels ones emotions. It is a rare film about control and submission that manages to put you simultaneously into both the minds of the rapist and the victim. Based on a stage play, the bulk of the film takes place within two rooms in the small house and features only 4 people, yet manages to maintain its grip. The first hour is very intense and disturbing and ‘feels’ very real, but the last half hour is a compromise of morals and legality that ultimately fails as being unrealistic [lose a *].
The disc offers few special features being language selections, subtitles and hard of hearing choices. Despite the subject there is little nudity, [head and shoulders shower scene, a side on nipple shot and out of focus dressing up scene] so avoids the smut of many other movies. The violence is all to real, being both physical and verbal, whilst the soundtrack works well in reinforcing the emotions portrayed. Very 80’s in style, clothing and musical flavour, it’s a must see, **** rating.

This is the movie that farrah fawcett managed to break away from the bimbo/glossy type roles she became known for!trying to prove she could act,she finally proved it here!She did the stage play,first got noticed in `the burning bed` and followed with this!Probably the only film,she proved herself,she holds her own with a stella supporting cast and thank goodness she was better than`sunburn`!

Farrah Fawcett and James Russo are ideal for these two roles. Russo is excellent as the rapist and manupulator. Very controversial in 1985 and still is a topic that causes debate. Life is based on choices and here it is a crucial choice to be made. Based on a popular New York play one cant go wrong. I never miss a movie when it is based on a play. At least you can expect good dialogue and story line. This film will upset some people and I think it should. Puts you in the minds of the rapist and the victim. For a dramatic film with substance, get this one, you will enjoy it. After the movie there will be discussions.

Somehow this film is unsatisfying despite the wonderful performances by Fawcett, Russo etc. William Mastrosimone delivered the screenplay, based on his titular play. If you look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEDy_jds02o you can see that the meat of the play is the characters' discussion of what has happened; while, in the film, the discussion is truncated to the point that you can really only get off on the sadomasochistic nature of the scenes, e.g. Fawcett with a belt around her neck, and so on. Very Hitchcockian, but all the same...
