Chloe: DVD Review

Chloe: DVD Review

Rating: R16
Released by Roadshow Entertainment
An erotic thriller remade from a French film from the 90s, Chloe stars Amanda Seyfried as a mysterious woman who wreaks some kind of havoc on an apparently happily married couple.
Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore are Catherine and David; when David doesn't return for his birthday and encouraged by the fact he appears to flirt with everything, Catherine suspects him of having an affair.
So she engages the services of prostitute Chloe (the sultry Seyfried who oozes sexuality in this) to tempt her hubby. But when Chloe comes back and reveals all, Catherine finds herself brought to life by the sordid details - and soon Chloe's about to destroy their lives...
Sultry and sexy, this psycho thriller also dips into the silly side as well - the end completely ruins what's gone previously and plunges Chloe deep into OTT territory.
Seyfried does sultry very well (boding well for Red Riding Hood) and Moore impresses as the obsessive yet suspicious wife.
Granted you can see what's coming and when, but respected Atom Egoyan spins out the suspense of the story well, and with the sensual side and sexual obsession ramped up, this is something a little different.
Extras: Deleted/ Alternate scenes

Rating: 6/10
