Starring Rob Lowe and James Spader

BadInf-bluQuiet, unas­sum­ing finan­cial ana­lyst Michael Boll (Spader) lives a suc­cess­ful-yet-timid life, lack­ing in risks or rewards. When he cross­es paths with the enig­mat­ic Alex (Lowe), the two form a friend­ship based on ever-increas­ing­ly bold behav­ior. When Michael’s new pal push­es things too far, how­ev­er, Michael wants out… but the mys­te­ri­ous Alex has no desire to set him free from the seduc­tive­ly dan­ger­ous lifestyle he’s dragged him into.


A sexy and sus­pense­ful dra­ma in the vein of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Bad Influence is a crack­ling thriller from writer David Koepp (Death Becomes Her, Apartment Zero) and Oscar® win­ner* and direc­tor Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential).
