Body Chemistry
Release Date: 9 March 1990 (USA)
Genre: Drama | Thriller
Director(s): Kristine Peterson (Kickboxer 5: The Redemption)
Writer(s): Jackson Barr (Body Chemistry 3: Point of Seduction)
Starring: Marc Singer, Lisa Pescia and Mary Crosby

This is technically not a direct-to-video title, as Body Chemistry shockingly was released very briefly into theatres. Since the series is important to the genre, I figured I’d break a rule.

No matter how many MRG Entertainment Skinemax films get released on DVD, the Body Chemistry series will forever live on as the best representation of the erotic thriller genre available. Although played by three different actresses along the way, the Claire Archer character is the main character throughout the entire series. While all of them drew inspiration from the classic Michael Douglas-Glenn Close film Fatal Attraction, the first Body Chemistry is the most blatant.

Body Chemistry really is Fatal Attraction with less talented actors. Tom Redding (a wide-eyed Singer) is working on a new assignment at work that finds him studying the responses various people have to sexual images. With research going well, a wife and child at home, and a possible director’s position in his future, everything is going just fine for Redding. That won’t last too much longer, as Redding allows himself to get involved with a mysterious woman by the name of Dr. Claire Archer (Pescia). If you’ve ever seen Fatal Attraction, you know what’s to come. And if you haven’t seen Fatal Attraction, just go out and rent it right now, then forget the first Body Chemistry exists.

Body Chemistry is a horrible movie. It lacks emotion at every turn, and never feels like anything more than a third-rate Fatal Attraction rip-off. It even lacks the skin scenes that, in any other movie, would cut the time for dialogue down to seventy minutes. There’s a lot less than a minute of that material here, and even then it’s pretty poor.

Most pathetic part of the movie is definitely when Redding’s son jokes, “When Daddy was five there weren’t any dinosaurs.” I really hope the line wasn’t written in the script like that, as it’s not even a joke when it’s said that way.

DVD: Barebones.
