Australia was set to have the "soft" US theatrical version released in cinemas. UIP, the international distributors, even had the posters printed up with the lower MA rating which said version received, but at the last minute, they decided to release the complete uncut version in theaters. All the 1-sheet posters printed (there were thousands) had to have an R-rated sticker placed over the MA rating. See more »

Sliver is a sly, cunning piece of sex and eroticism based on the novel by Ira Levin and adapted by Joe Ezsterhas' seedy pen. Sharon Stone plays Carly Norris, a lonely Manhattan book editor who moves into a luxurious toothpick-thin (the sliver of the title) building. Two men, Zeke Hawkins, a computer game designer, and Jack Landsford, a burnt out author, compete for Carly's affections, but Zeke wins her. Very quickly residents of the building are being killed off, including Gus Hale, a man Carly briefly met, and Vida Warren, who appears to have had a secret relationship with Jack. Then Zeke reveals his most secret, private, intimate obsession to Carly: he is a compulsive voyeur and has every unit of the building wired with video cameras, and he watches everybody! Sliver is a very good mystery/suspense film that contains some graphic scenes of sexuality and true thrills.
Sliver is Unrated for strong sexuality and nudity, mild violence and some gore, strong language and drug use.
Note: The Unrated version of Sliver contains two minutes of additional sexual material cut from the film's theatrical release.
