Alternate Versions

In the version shown on Showtime and The Movie Channel, both the sex scene between William Katt and Maria Ford and the scene near the end with Katt tied to a chair, were drastically shortened to just a few seconds each. When this movie aired on HBO and Cinemax, both scenes were much longer and slightly more graphic. All the versions were listed as being R-rated, so perhaps Showtime/The Movie Channel aired a 'Blockbuster' cut of the film. (Blockbuster is known to carry specially censored versions of some movies which they feel are too graphic) See more »

Naked murder mystery
4 January 2005 | by JBSdudeSee all my reviews

It's been a few years since I've seen it but Naked Obsession is one of the better "B" movies of all time. It stars William Katt who played TV's "Greatest American Hero". Also, look for a small role by former 49ers running back, Roger Craig. Not many stars here but a pretty good plot.

The movies begins with a city councilman, played by Katt, deciding to explore the darker side of town to research a community development initiative. He eventually ends up at a strip joint and is later framed for a murder. The movie gets very sexy from here which makes it worth checking out.
