Picks and Pans Review: Spellbinder
No lady vampire this time. Knockout Kelly Preston is just your simple Satan worshipper. No sooner does yuppie lawyer Timothy (Diner) Daly save Preston from a dagger-wielding boyfriend (Anthony Crivello) than she's home in his apartment, cooking up a storm in his kitchen and in his bed. Everyone from Daly's buddy (Rick Rossovich) to his secretary (Diana Bellamy) is wary of Preston. That kitchen fetish just doesn't suit a modern woman. At least not in Tracey Torme's feminist-baiting script—that's Mr. Torme, girls. Spellbinder starts out as an erotic, entertaining horror version of Fatal Attraction. Then director Janet Greek, of TV's L.A. Law and Max Headroom, runs the plot aground with typical horror hokum. Too bad. It was wicked sport while it lasted. (R)
