Back in the day when video rental stores dominated the home entertainment world, small production companies would crank out low budget thrillers or dramas with sexy stars who showed a lot more skin than you'd likely see during your average theatrical release. These films usually went direct-to-video, or DTV, and borrowed similar titles or stories from mainstream hits hoping the familiarity (or misidentity) would result in a rental. Contrary to many of today's streamlined late-night cable flleshfests, these DTV flicks tried to tell an actual story and the participants tried to act. Naturally the number of failures were abundant on both counts. But hey, on the other hand, they have boobies!

Animal Instincts ranks among the most popular from the golden age of DTV not because of its stylish look, fashionable clothes, nor guest cast which includes the slimy looking David Carradine as a slimy acting nightclub owner. Its preeminence is due to the spectacular starring debut of softcore queen Shannon Whirry who shone briefly but oh so brightly. Truly this woman had a body to be seen to be believed and wasn't going to let some flimsy fabric get in the way of an audience's appreciation. As for acting, well, turns out there were more than two good reasons why she got roles in movies of this stature. To her credit, in a 1998 interview she noted, "If a part called for any type of nudity, I would at least make sure that the woman was smart and powerful. I've never just whipped off my top and run down a hallway." This is very true, including this character Joanne who has her way with a string of men. The story is easy to get into because of Shannon's seductive qualities which makes for a steamy good watch.

(1992) Animal Instincts
EROTIC DRAMA

Straight-to-rental soft core porn movie which centers on a guy who doesn't know how to become intimate with his just married wife without witnessing her screw with strangers whose secretly hiding behind a closet, sometimes video taping them! Modest hit on rental with Shannon Whirry wearing breast implants at the time, but has taken them off for awhile now! It's cheap, full of bad acting (if their is any acting) and rather pointless, since this has been done many times before in a mature manner, and that it's purpose was nothing more than a backdrop to the unecessary make out scenes! Oh, and theirs also a sequel which I haven't seen yet!
