Trivia

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 »

Lousy Plot, Not Quite Porn
18 September 2006 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

Finally saw the uncut version of this on a premium channel. First, the movie was based on a novel by Ira Levin, who wrote "Rosemary's Baby" years ago, about a bunch of weird witches in a kinky New York apartment building and several unexpected deaths in the building. This is about a bunch of perverts in a kinky New York apartment building and several unexpected deaths in the building. So there's an odd feeling of familiarity.

Next, the script, by Joe Ezterhaus, is "Basic Instinct" meets "Jagged Edge." The film starts out like a classic woman in peril film, except the woman is Sharon Stone and the camera lingers on her obsessively. It's soft porn in some shots and hard core in the shower scenes where we get to imagine her masturbating. The scenes with her in them just go on and on. (Yes, she is/was beautiful, but a fabulous face can't carry this sorry mess.)Its a mish-mash of a bad plot, bad dialogue, uneven acting and we've seen it all before. Twice. Nothing new is added to the film to make it interesting except the concept of voyeurism and it's not enough.
