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 »
