To celebrate the release of Iain Softley’s new film Trap For Cinderella out in UK cinemas this Friday, we’ve decided to take a look at a collection of the best films to grace cinema screens which focus on the theme of Obsession
Fatal Attraction, (1987)
Dan Gallagher, played by Michael Douglas, lives a normal family life with his wife and kids until meeting Alex (Glen Close). After a one-night affair Alex becomes obsessed with Dan and begins to terrorize him and insist they continue their relationship. She goes to great lengths, pretending to carry his child and kidnapping his daughter for a start, to try to win him back. Dan is forced to attempt to preserve his family, while dealing with the consequences of his own indiscretion. This classic obsession story earned six Oscar nominations and features the brilliant Glenn Close in one of her most iconic roles.
As famed novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) heads home from his Colorado retreat he is met with a freak blizzard which causes a car crash in which he is seriously injured. Seemingly lucky, he is rescued by none other than nurse Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), who professes herself as his “number one fan.” Annie takes Paul to her isolated house in the mountains, and he starts to realise that Annie may not be as sane as he previously thought. Based on the horror novel by Stephen King, Misery features terrifyingly terrific performances, especially from Kathy Bates who won an Oscar for Best Actress.
Single White Female, (1992)
