    Abstract:
    In this article, Rooks argues that Geoffrey Wright's modern film adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth is part of the enduring western discourse linking femininity, sexuality and evil and that the film exposes our persistent fascination with and anxiety over the alleged dangerous sexual power of women.
