Color of Night | 1994 | R | - 8.8.8

Bruce Willis and Jane March star in this erotic thriller about a crazed killer.

SEX/NUDITY 8 - There are two extended sex scenes in which there is partial female frontal nudity, and full nudity of both male and female from behind. A woman discusses her sexual desires. Several scenes of passionate kissing and fondling. Implications of oral sex. Two women kiss briefly. Discussion of sadomasochism. Several other scenes where a woman is shown partially nude from front and rear.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A woman is shown putting a gun in her mouth. A woman jumps out a window in a very tall building, and the camera lingers on her falling, and then is shown from the vantage point of the ground when she lands. The bloody aftermath is also shown. A man is stabbed 30 times and falls onto a shard of glass. We see and hear almost every blow, and see him covered with blood. Another man bleeds to death: we see him bound and hanging upside down. A rattle snake lunges at a man. There is a graphic description of the murders of a woman and young child. Discussion of a 12-year-old boy committing suicide. One character is shown with her very bloody hands nailed to a chair. A fight with a nail gun results in a couple of people being shot and pinned to walls. (It's all quite graphic).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
