Wild Things can be classified as one of those guilty pleasure movies that we check out from time to time. Teeming with sexuality and suspense, it also has a decent story and excellent acting. All the lead roles were great, and along with their good looks they brought talent and skill to the set and you can feel that while watching the movie. Actually when I think about it, story in Wild Things is quite complex and utterly realistic, but somewhat distant, and I guess that’s the part of the thrill. Imagining yourself in any  of the offered roles creates yet another level that you can enjoy. As lead singer of Twisted Singer, Dee Snider said once: if you look for medical references in our songs, you will find them. But also if you look to S & M references they are there too. Perhaps the hype about this movie is going to create a wrong image with the viewers who haven’t seen it, so just to be clear: there are explicit sexual scenes but they are not ever-present, it’s more about the atmosphere than the graphic display of sexuality.

Fun Facts: Before the filming of an outdoor scene by the river, a gaffer was fixing the lights and noticed something floating by in the river. It was a dead body. The police were called and when they arrived, they anchored it to the dock, out of sight of the camera. They removed it after the scene was shot.
