Enhance your purchase
A spoilt rich kid, a troubled teen from the wrong side of the tracks, a carefree playboy and a dogged detective find themselves all caught up in the sex crime of the century in this steamy star-studded crime thriller from the director of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Popular and charming, student counsellor Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon) is no stranger to being the focus of female attention within the moneyed cliques of Florida’s Blue Bay. His fortunes are about to change dramatically, however, when one of the wealthiest students at his high school, sultry siren Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards), accuses him of rape. The charge looks sure to stick when another girl from the other end of the social spectrum, Suzie Toller (Neve Campbell), steps forward with her own allegations, but Detective Duquette (Kevin Bacon) smells something fishy, and the truth is as murky and dangerous as the alligator-infested swamps in the hinterlands of this affluent beach community. Presented in new 4K restorations of its original theatrical version and extended ‘Unrated Edition’, Wild Things is a classic piece of sexy late-90s neo-noir from director John McNaughton and writer Stephen Peters, whose serpentine plotting will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end credits roll.

In an affluent Florida suburb, a double assault claim from two students (one wealthy, one from the sticks) against a popular teacher spirals into plot twist upon plot twist as a super cast (Matt Dillon, Denise Richards, Neve Campbell, Kevin Bacon and Bill Murray) thoroughly enjoys themselves as the lurid twists play out.
There’s two versions of the film, the original 108 minute version and a 114 minute ‘unrated’ version that has some significant extra scenes that actually further change the complexity of the film if they had stayed in.
The extras package is fine - two commentaries (the second one with director John McNaughton and crew being better than the first) plus new interviews with McNaughton and actress Denise Richards, plus some archive stuff and a booklet with two essays on the film and noir thrillers.
Terrific film, OK extras.
