During filming, a crew was sent to Hawaii to film an active volcano for the opening credits. During the flyover, the volcano erupted, and the helicopter carrying the crew crashed. No one was killed, but all film was lost. The opening credit scene is referenced in the film by the crystal volcano in Zeke's Room. See more »
In the dinner party scene, Jack Landsford, played by Tom Berenger, arrives at the party with slightly shorter hair than when he leaves. When he enters, his hair is trimmed tighter to his head, while when he leaves, his hair is definitely a tad longer on the sides, back, and bangs, enough to notice that this much hair would not grow in a matter of hours. This scene likely had a re-shoot. See more »

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.
