'Basic Instinct'

Today on Trailers from Hell, Dan Ireland looks back at Paul Verhoeven's schlocky-fun 1992 thriller "Basic Instinct," made famous by chilly blonde Sharon Stone's crotch shot for the ages.

In the early eighties Hollywood was glutted with so-called "erotic thrillers" combining soft-core sex and hardcore violence that usually went straight to cable and video. In 1992, Paul Verhoeven took that same trashy template and directed "Basic Instinct," a big-budget exploitation film which didn't stint on its garishly amusing scenes of sex and violence, in fact it's probably even more provocative than its low budget forebears. Michael Douglas stars as the teeth-gritting cop who jumps into an ill-advised affair with a possibly murderous psychologist played with Hitchcockian flair by blonde ice-goddess Sharon Stone.
