    "When you think femme fatale, Basic Instinct is pretty much one of the very first ones you are sure to think of. I mean, here is the classic gorgeous woman who uses her looks and cunning to lure men and then finish them off with her deadly skills. Amazing! One of Sharon Stone's best movies!"

    "Species is the classic gorgeous woman is actually a crazy ass alien who wants to get pregnant and basically destroy the entire whole world. It is quite a corny plot now, but this was one of the first and in my opinion, will always be one of the best movies with a femme fatale!"

    "Cruel Intentions was a film I watched when I was younger and I was surprised at how dark it was! I suppose the 90s were a time for thriller romance type movies, and this was one of those that really showed off Geller's acting capabilities. Will watch this again cos I remember now how much I enjoyed this!"

    "Red Sparrow was a film that I actually looked forward to since I wanted to see Jennifer Lawrence nail this performance of a femme fatale character. However, I honestly thought the movie was a disappointment overall in its plot and script. :( In any case, this is still a good example of a movie with a femme fatale in it, so this belongs here still.

    "Gone Girl is not your typical femme fatale film in that the woman does not really set out to kill men in particular. However, it shows a deeper, more psychological look at the inner workings of the mind of a true femme fatale. This movie is just amazing on all levels!"

    "Kill Bill is basically a movie where a woman sets out to kill her baby daddy for attempting to kill her and her baby. On her way to that baby daddy, though, she has to kill a whole lot of other people too! A really fun and gory movie that has amazing visuals and an amazing cast as well. A must if you like watching badass femme fatales at work!"

    "I actually didn't know that Jennifer Aniston was the lead here, and I only realized this when I rewatched it. I was so surprised at how great she was able to bring the role of psycho femme fatale woman to life here, as opposed to every other romcom type film she has done before!"

    "Lara Croft could be called a femme fatale in a sense since she is a hardcore machine who can do all those amazing stunts and tricks with her body and weapons. I think she is the more cool type of femme fatale who can really cause some major damage. If only I could be like her in real life! Hahaha"
