Trivia

After the success of Sharon Stone's Basic Instinct (1992), this film was retitled in German as "Final Instinct". See more »

Goofs

Supposedly taking place in Chicago (though there's no attempt to give even the barest hint of it being in Chicago -- the apartment building is very LA), but the sloppiness gets very evident when you see the (213) Los Angeles area code on the toy building across from the insane apartment she ends up in (Chicago's area code is 312).

A good, well directed thriller
21 June 2009 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

This is a very unknown Sharon Stone movie before she became kind of iconic with BASIC INSTICT. Stone is a trammed girl who locks alone in his apartment collecting scissors and making weird dolls. At the opening, she is attacked by a stranger who attempts to rape her in a elevator but her neighbor saves her. He becomes very interested on her but she just't don't keep him attention. Searching for a job she goes to a good looking, futuristic apartment and suddenly she got lock in there.

There are suspense to feed you even if we have seen this before in films like REPULSION or GASLIGHT. Stone is very good in her role and all the last part in the apartment is very atmospheric and intriguing. The direction is really good and tries to innovate in a very good way. This movie is hard to find so if you find it for any chance try it.
