Basic Instinct – 1992
This is a movie that truly took the entire genre to a new level following the extreme popularity of Fatal Attraction. This is a movie that had Michael Douglas starring right next to one of the rising stars in the industry Sharon Stone. In this movie, Michael played a detective that was investigating a murder that closely resembled the work of a writer.

This movie, at the time, was known for having fairly graphic sex scenes. This movie was not only well-crafted and well made, but it was also at times a very compelling thriller. It’s also hot and has provided a lot of pleasure according to those we asked. The person that wrote the script for the movie ended up going on to write a lot more compelling and well-received thrillers including Silver and Jade.
The sequel for Basic Instinct ended up getting released as many as 14 years later but wasn’t as well-received due to declining interest in the entire genre.
Dressed to Kill – 1980

A favourite of 3wishes, this movie is about a woman that steals drug money from her husband. In it, Bridget leaves Chicago and ends up seducing a man to kill her husband that happens to be coming after her for the money.
Originally, the production company that was responsible for the movie looked at the script and figured it would be something for late-night television audiences. However, those responsible for the film set out to make a full-blown movie production that would be much more.
While it was an erotic thriller, the film received a lot of good reviews mainly for it has a great performance by Linda Fiorentino, but also for having plenty of wits and dry humor too. Since then, a lot of viewers have looked at the actress’s character in it and found it to be very refreshing compared to the normal characters forced on women.
Bound – 1996
Before Wachowski directed the everso popular Matrix, they needed to have something that proved they could do it. This is the film that was made as a result.

During the period, it was very rare to have a lesbian relationship on film, especially one that was released to a mainstream audience.
When it was officially released, critics praised the film for its style and direction. It is also praised for having lesbian leads and an entire plot surrounding them. From there, the Wachowskis ended up going on to create The Matrix and the rest is history.

During the period, the film was noted for having a lot of graphic sex scenes according to those we asked for suggestions. A lot of sex scenes were left during the cutting phase. However, what the director truly wanted was to create a very tense thriller and these elements were expertly crafted. It is all pulled together by Kathleen Turner’s performance in her acting debut.
