Oscar® winner Michael Douglas stars with red-hot Sharon Stone in this groundbreaking and controversial film that redefined the genre of the sexy thriller. When tough but vulnerable detective Nick Curran (Douglas) meets a cold, calculating novelist with insatiable sexual urges (Stone), he is caught in a deadly web of betrayal, lies, and murder—quickly descending into San Francisco's dark and dangerous underworld where suspicions mount, bodies fall, and only basic instincts keep you alive.
