Trivia

Ira Levin was reluctant to sell the rights to his book. He had only been pleased with the movie adaptation of Rosemary's Baby (1968) out of all the attempts to film his novels. When producer Robert Evans, who had produced Rosemary's Baby, got wind of this, he sent Levin a copy of Roman Polanski's autobiography, with all the mentions of Evans' salvaging the film highlighted. The ploy worked and Levin sold the rights to Evans for $250,000. See more »

Watch it for the gorgeous Sharon Stone.
14 August 2018 | by jimjohnson-57331See all my reviews

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.
