Where To Watch ‘Basic Instinct’ FREE Online

Watch Basic Instinct starring Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas free on Plex this month


We’ve all seen the scene: Sharon Stone, in the infamous white dress, smoking a cigarette, taunting Newman from Seinfeld…and then she uncrosses her legs. Okay, maybe you’ve just seen that one scene. If you’re interested in the rest of the movie, you can watch Basic Instinct FREE on Plex this month.


This neo-noir erotic thriller follows Detective Nick Curran (Michael Douglas) as he investigates the murder of a rock star. The main suspect? Crime novelist Catherine Trammell (Stone), who engages Nick in a cat-and-mouse game/love affair filled with murder, lust, and twists and turns that you’ll never see coming.

And, of course, THAT one scene. This movie is now 30+ years old and it’s still a jaw-dropping scene.

Fun fact: Steven Spielberg saw Wayne Knight in this movie and cast him in Jurassic Park. See? Nobody cares. I will always stand by the opinion that Knight was one of the more underrated actors of the 1990s, but maybe that’s because I’m a diehard Seinfeld fan (“When you control the mail, you control…INFORMATION.”)
