(( Anna Wentworth/Arts Reviewer: Director Checkik thought he was making a dark thriller...actress Sharon Stone thought she was making a campy black comedy. So with "Diabolique" what we have is a campy thriller. ((DIABOLIQUE/WARNER BROS.: KILLING HIM IS A GOOD THING. LIKE PLANTING A TREE. ONE GOOD DRINK OUGHT TO DO IT. CHEERS.))
Stone is the hard-as-nails mistress of Guy--an abusive prep school headmaster played by Chazz Palmientari.
Isabelle Adjani is his victimized wife. Mistress and wife plot together to kill Guy, but the body disappears and they wonder if he's really dead.
Adding to their paranoia is a tenacious detective played by Kathy Bates.
This '96 version of Diabolique, adds up to a different version of the '55 classic. ((IT ISN'T LIKE YOU BURNT THE TOAST, MIA. YOU KILLED YOUR HUSBAND. IT'S A LITTLE OFF THE CHART, DEMERIT WISE. UNDERSTAND? THIS IS A DAY LIKE ANY OTHER DAY. WE DID WHAT WE HAD TO DO AND ITS DONE. IT WAS SELF DEFENSE.))
To say more would spoil some of the plot twists, but for fans of the clouzot original, a warning. The ending has been changed ludicrous and is more "Halloween" than Hitchcockian.
Even at that, the movie gets a "B-" if only for Stones' poisonous clothes and over the top performance.))
