    I was referring to the woman who is assertive in her own life but who men call her a femme fatale, a ball buster, a beyatch, whatever, but never about a murdering psychopath type; I am in agreement with you there, Shanazel.

    I have heard the term "lady-killer."

    If I knew the French equivalent for femme fatale for a man, that is what I was trying to say. But I agree that there are just as many deadly males as females.

    As opposed to pomme fatale which is what Snow White ate.

    Femme Fatales I don't think exist anymore. They are "Gold Diggers" now. However I thought the Femme Fatale was a beautiful women, who used her charming beauty and wit to fool rich men into marrying them and then they kill them, no sex involved though there probably was sometimes but I like to think that they didn't for romancism (is that a word? xD) =p Though I don't actually know. These days however the gold diggers just get the man using sex, marry the man then divorce him after a while but probably cheating on him on the way. Less glamorous and more like a prostitute to be honest. At least Femme Fatales had style, class and respectability xD

    I just watched the trailer for the DVD, it looks like a load of made up stuff with no historical basis on style or lifestyle. Especcially the "Victorian vampire" isn't that completely modern?? It looks like she just took what she liked and changed it to suit her. Not what a Femme Fatale actually is.
