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 »

Shannon gets naked, how can ya go wrong?
26 March 2000 | by (Briiklyn NY) – See all my reviews

Not a lot of plot here, but who cares? Some of the same gang from the "Mirror Images" flicks, Whirry is a knockout who doesn't waste too much time in clothes. Like the "Mirror Images" movies, there's a shrink who turns Shannon into a sexual animal, which makes this one a good watch.
