Basic Instinct is an erotic thriller from 1992 about a sex-crazed murderer and a police officer who’s getting a little too personal with one of the suspects in a murder. As tensions boil Sharon Stone, who plays the main suspect and an author, gives a powerful and sleek performance of a woman who knows her looks can get her off the hook and help her write and finish her book.
