An Australian couple take a sailing trip in the Pacific to forget about a terrible accident. While on the open sea, in dead calm, they come across a ship with one survivor who is not at all what he seems.
Australian actress Nicole Kidman starred in her first leading role in Phillip Noyce’s R-rated erotic thriller.
She took the role of Rae Ingram, a terrorized but strong-willed woman onboard the schooner Saracen with her husband John (Sam Neill). When John was diverted away, she had no choice but to give in to the sexual advances of deranged killer castaway Hughie Warriner (Billy Zane) and make love to him – as part of a resourceful strategy to possibly catch him off guard and eventually subdue the psychotic madman.
As she laid on top of him, she removed her white T-shirt, and he ripped off her shorts and panties. She told him that first, however, she had to go to the bathroom – she put on a robe and went up on deck to assemble a shotgun. Her ploy was aborted, as was a second attempt to use the shotgun, so she finally accepted intercourse and experienced an intense, gasping orgasm.
The couple believed that they had finally conquered Hughie by seriously wounding him with a harpoon, knocking him unconscious, tossing him onto a free-floating rescue raft, and setting him adrift. In the surprise twist ending, he was finally killed once and for all.
