Basic Instinct Sequel R-Rated
The sequel to erotic thriller BASIC INSTINCT has been given an R rating in the US, after several sexy scenes were cut.
BASIC INSTINCT 2: RISK ADDICTION, which sees SHARON STONE reprising her role as novelist CATHERINE TRAMELL, was originally hit with an NC-17 rating, meaning 17s and over could see it unaccompanied by an adult.
But the movie has since been edited by director MICHAEL CATON-JONES and editor JOHN SCOTT to allow for a younger audience.
A Sony spokesman tells the New York Daily News, "It is a hard R. It's a graphic psychological thriller.
"The official MPAA designation is, 'Strong sexuality, nudity, violence, language and some drug content.'"
The film sees Tramell seduce a criminal psychologist played by DAVID MORISSEY.
