Blatant "Basic Instinct" clone; fair on those terms
12 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Of all the "Basic Instinct" copies that have been made since 1992 (and there are plenty), "Dead Sexy" must be one of the most blatant. Sure, it switches the genders of the two main characters, but keeps almost everything else the same, right down to the only other suspect for the killings being someone within the police force who has hidden ties to the primary suspect. Of course "Dead Sexy" does not come anywhere near the style and suspense and general quality of the Verhoeven film, but on its own low-budget straight-to-video terms it's a fair way to pass some time. Shannon Tweed is acceptable, Sam Jones (as her partner) is even better, injecting some needed humor into the proceedings. As for the matter of the body double, I personally cannot understand why Tweed felt the need to use one. She showed everything - and it looked good as usual - in "The Rowdy Girls", made in 2000; what could have changed so much over a year? (**)
