“Diabolique (1996) Sharon Stone, Isabelle Adjani, Chazz Palminteri, Kathy Bates, Spalding Gray, Shirley Knight, D: Jeremiah S. Chechik. Revamped version of the 1955 French thriller, with Palimenteri as a tyrannical boys-school headmaster done in by the joined forces of his mousy wife (Adjani) and icy blonde mistress (Stone) in a murder plot they wrongfully assume is foolproof. First-rate performers canu0026#39;t serve justice to this diabolical debacle, which doesnu0026#39;t start off too bad, then goes astray. This unspeakably bad rip-off trashes the classic original with too many `oh, come onu0026#39; moments, ridiculous red herrings and twists of its own, and a finale right out of a slasher flick. Bates is even gone to waste as a retired detective whou0026#39;s investigating the case `for something to dou0026#39;. Running Time: 107 minutes and rated R for nudity and sexual content, violence, and some language. * ½”
