Sliver is billed as an erotic thriller. It is erotic all right but there isn't much thrill in here. A young, good looking female moves into a tall building in NYC but it turns out there are a lot of skeletons hiding among the residents. Billy Baldwin is the male lead although this is Stone's film. Although the sex scenes are good there is no story to go with it. Upon looking at the wiki article I saw that the film was a financial disaster and I can see why. One needs a good foundation- a script of worth on which all the other features can stand. Sliver gets the erotic bits alright but fails to deliver a story. Still, worth a watch.
