” …the pacing was too slow, even for this genre of film. Just a lot of talking and reliance on the viewer to constantly think “oh, man, if I were in his/her shoes” to help the storyline run along and seem engaging. Pumping up tense music to try and synthesize a scene’s tension was over-used and became grating on my soul.” Horror News


In the USA, Lionsgate is releasing Fatale theatrically on December 18th 2020.
