Trivia

Following the UK home video success of Animal Instincts (1992), UK distributors tried to cash-in on the fact that Body of Influence featured the same director and lead actress so they retitled and released the movie as Animal Instincts II. Confusingly the actual sequel to Animal Instincts was released the following year, leading to UK distributors retitling that movie as Animal Instincts III. See more »

A guilty pleasure!
1 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

As one starts watching this movie, one thinks at first that it is a routine TV quality movie.It appeared at first to be a rip off of the theme from Madona's "Body of Evidence". Both movies rely on the sexuality of the female stars.I for one am glad that I watched this movie. Shannon Whirry's sexuality makes this mediocre movie worth watching. One scene in particular where she is recounting a tale to the psychiatrist while simultaneously teasing him by stripping and doing body gymnastics literally under his nose is unforgettable. She alone makes this worth watching.The other characters in this movie are memorable only to the extent that they are reacting to the hot sexual aura put out by Shannon Whirry. At least for males this is a much better than average movie.
