Not long ago, Cinema Fearité dug into the phenomenon of “Oscar Horror” when we took a look at The Silence of the Lambs. Although that movie may be the best example of a modern horror movie going mainstream for the Academy Awards, it certainly isn’t the only one, and we’re not talking about The Shape of Water. Four short years before The Silence of the Lambs brought home the Big Five, Fatal Attraction earned a slew of Oscar nominations of its own.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past offers nothing as a whole for the viewer. It is so focused on showing the womanizing ways of the main character that it completely forgets it is supposed to be a romantic comedy.
