Hollywood pays attention, and one thing that hasn’t gone unnoticed is the success of erotic thrillers that cater to the black audience. But the success of films such as Obsessed, The Perfect Guy, Acrimony, No Good Deed, and others has created its own little sub-genre, and Netflix is getting in on it with Fatal Affair.
The title pretty much says it all, right? What it doesn’t tell you is that it stars Nia Long, Omar Epps, and Stephen Bishop. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that my friends and family will pay to see Nia Long or Omar Epps in just about anything, but especially a movie like this. Fatal Affair stars Long as an unfulfilled wife who reconnects with an old friend, and nearly crosses the line into adultery. But having stopped just short, the man she once called a friend has become obsessed with her.
Behind the camera is Peter Sullivan, no stranger to Netflix thrillers after 2017’s Secret Obsession.
Fatal Affair hits Netflix on July 16th.
SYNOPSIS: Ellie (Nia Long) tries to mend her marriage with her husband Marcus (Stephen Bishop) after a brief encounter with an old friend, David (Omar Epps), only to find that David is more dangerous and unstable than she’d realized.
