Sliver stands for Sliver Heights a tall elegant apartment building where people mysteriously die, it is here that quiet and lonely book editor Carly Norris (Sharon Stone) rents a flat and meets the charming and persuasive Zeke Hawkins (William Baldwin) and tries to evade the attentions of failing author Jack Landsford (Tom Berenger).

An unseen menace lurks in the tranquil building, and a comprehensive surveillance system watches everything.

This was Stone's follow on film to "Basic Instinct" and fortunately she and Baldwin have excellent chemistry both dramatically and in the steamy erotic elements of the plot.

In the nature of the drama it cannot plumb the depths of the fascination of the voyeur being able to watch every aspect of other peoples lives. However the film does explore in a limited way the transformation taking place in the ordinary Carly Norris suddenly able to sit for hours spying on her neighbours, and that turns a small part of this thriller into an intriguing psychological drama.

Direction, acting and script make the most of a film that is a must for Sharon Stone fans.

One of my favorite thrillers bar none.Great performances from all three leads and equally as good as Basic Instinct.Sharon Stone plays a woman who moves into a fancy New York apartment where a woman was murdered.It's also revealed hidden cameras have been installed and her every move is being watched.

While there is no extras on the DVD and the killers identity is slightly predictable,Sliver is still top notch entertainment I can watch over and over.Great soundtrack and nail-biting suspense.

This film I saw a few years back and I had on video, back in the days! So now I decided to treat myself to the DVD.

There is a great storyline in this thriller, and is full of twists and turns and you just don't know how it will end! The end is however very satisfying.

Sharon Stone is an extraordinarily good actress who can turn her hand easily to whatever character she plays. In this film she is very vulnerable and likeable. She doesn't disappoint in this film, as neither do the other well known stars, Berenger and Baldwin. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a plot full of twists and turns, and some truly chilling moments.

Carly has just moved into a new apartment building with a bit of a dodgy past. The only reason she got the apartment is bacause of the tragic death of the former resident. The people int he building are a friendly bunch but things are not quite right here. This movie is a thrilling ride and left me daydreaming about what could be going on in others lives if we could only see behind closed doors. That is precisely what is happening in this building ..someone is spying ....but who??? Great movie , great actors..what's not to love!!!

If you liked Basic Instinct, you'll most definatly love Sliver. Sharon Stone plays Carly Norris a divorcee who is on the road back to an exciting life. She moves in to a new apartment building in New York which the locals call Slivers. On arrival, she finds that she looks very similar to a woman who had died in the same apartment months before. As she settles in she meets Zeke Hawkins (Alex Baldwin) the sexy man of the building whom she becomes very closely involved with and Jack Landsford (Tom Berenger) From the moment Carly moves in she is closley watched and as she gets closer to discovering the voyeur, she gets closer to her fantasies. Not the best work Sharon Stone has done, but it's a good film with good supporting cast!

This is an adult thriller in the Basic Instinct type mould.
Acting was ok from the main actors with good twists and turns in the storyline.
The main theme is of Voeyerism, obsession and murder in a crowded claustrophobic tower block environment.
The ending is telling and touches on the fact that whilst behind closed doors in peoples' private lives all kinds of stuff happen which can be shocking to a fly on the wall, but knowingly, watching people that are unaware of this in their private lives at home really is worse - what kind of people enjoy watching other people in the mould of Big Brother? Maybe the last decade of Big Brother series' have numbed the concept of voeyerism so as to be not as shocking and morally ambivalent as before?

She's a good girl in this video-surveilance based thriller. Gorgeous and sexy as ever, poor Sharon is stalked by a mysterious peeping tom who has bumped off the previous tennant of her high-rise luxury apartment building. Never shy about getting her tits out, the luscious Ms Stone does not disappoint in this claustraphobic 80's whodunnit.
Is it the creepy, introverted sensualist Baldwin with his almost Norman Batesish demeanour or Berenger's overtly sexual playboy charmer responsible for offing the residents ?
It's all on tape.

The problem with this DVD, it appears to hgave been filmed during an eclipse of the sun. Like many modern films , I accept that there has to be a sense of realism, but where a light is switched on, it should not shine like a 40 watt bulb.

This 1993 movie is based on an Ira Levin novel of the same name. It tells the story of a New York publishing editor, Carly Norris (Sharon Stone), who moves into a New York high-rise apartment building. The apartment she moves into has become available as a result of the death of the previous tenant, Naomi Singer. As soon as she moves in she attracts the attention of the building manager, Zeke Hawkins (William Baldwin), who promptly seducer Carly. Another tenant in the apartment building is dried-up author Jack Landsford (Tom Beringer). Hawkins holds Landsford responsible for Singer's death, while Landsford blames Hawkins. It emerges that Hawkins owns the building and that he has had video equipment installed in every apartment to spy on his tenants. There are some tense moments as the possible guilt of one of the two suspects swings back and forth between them. There is a cameo part for Martin Landau as Carly's Editor-in-chief, Alex Parsons. This is an entertaining thriller, quite erotic in parts as Sharon Stone's movies often are.

I bought this film on impulse because it starred Sharon Stone. I had never heard of it before. The film was great keeping the suspence going right up to the end. Worth watching and I would recommend it.
