How to Watch Wild Things Movies in Order

Wild Things Movies in Order: Do you want sex and violence? Well, here you go. How much can you take? This sweaty, sexy, naughty neo-noir is a testament to the kind of film that could never be made today. It is so delightfully convoluted that the explanation for the film’s machinations continues well into the credits. Wild Things is the ultimate ‘90s neo-noir because it checks off all the requisite boxes, only to then become a commentary on the subgenre itself. It might qualify as passable Southern melodrama, but Stephen Peters’ screenplay is too ambitious by far. It changes the nature of the protagonists so often that the viewer is left puzzled by exhaustion. Each of these films, though completely disassociated from one another, is a form of twisty crime thriller suffused with a sleazy, flashy, steamy exploitation thriller that revels in every minute of its own testament and delivers some pretty solid — if prurient — entertainment. So if you are looking for a sweaty, sexy, naughty neo-noir kind of film that could never be made today, then watch All Wild Things Movies in Order of Release Date as guided here.


All Wild Things Film Series Movies to Watch

1. Wild Things (1998)

The scheme is far from tame. But whose scheme is it? Assume nothing as you venture beyond Blue Bay’s elite beach communities and into the murky waters of the Everglades for a mystery of deceit, sex and greed as unpredictable as a hungry gator. And please, keep your hands inside the boat at all times.  

The plot’s so convoluted it’s hardly worth describing, except to say that it’s set in humid Florida and involves a respected high school teacher Sam Lombardo (Matt Dillon ) who is faced with accusations of rape by a student Kelly Lanier Van Ryan (Denise Richards) who had been giving him the kind of attention most people would consider improper for such a “nice” young lady. Another student (Neve Campbell) raises a similar charge against the teacher, and that’s when a police officer (Kevin Bacon) begins to investigate the allegations. Just when you think the movie’s gone overboard with its shameless sex and absurdly twisted plot, in drops Bill Murray as an unscrupulous lawyer (of course) to spice things up with insurance scams and welcomed comic relief. As directed by John McNaughton, Wild Things is a bona fide guilty pleasure–the kind of movie you may be ashamed to enjoy, but what the heck, you’ll enjoy it anyway.


2. Wild Things 2 (2004)

Wild Things 2, the purported sequel to the 1998 guilty-pleasure classic, returns to steamy Florida for another tale of trashy thrills among the lives of high school students. A 17-year-old girl expecting to inherit her stepfather’s fortune, finds herself in a love/hate relationship with a fellow classmate who appears suddenly claiming to be the illegitimate daughter and rightful heir. Great suspense filled with sex, money, deceit and murder. Wild Things 2 isn’t really a sequel; none of the characters return, though there is a re-do of the original’s most famous scene. That’s about the only semi-noteworthy aspect of this straight-to-video potboiler.


3. Wild Things: Diamonds in the Rough (2005)

In “Wild Things 3,” the story of spoiled rich girl Marie Clifton is once again set in the Florida city of Blue Bay, which is near the ocean. Even though Marie lives in luxury, she is upset that her stepfather won’t give her a pair of diamonds worth more than $4 million that were written into the will of her late mother. Except for when troubled bad girl Elena Sandoval, who is on probation, accuses Jay of rape, leading police investigator Michael Morrison to place Jay under arrest. But as Elena’s probation officer, Kristin Richards, and Detective Morrison dig more into the case, they begin to think a larger plot was at play. As they believe Marie and Elena are conspiring to frame Jay in order to steal the diamonds with the help of their lover, Dr. Chad Johnson, they set out to stop the heist. Just like the first “Wild Things,” nothing is what it seems, and everyone has something to hide.


4. Wild Things: Foursome (2010)

Set yet again in the South Florida port town of Blue Bay, Wild Things Foursome is the seductive next film in the hot and sexy Wild Things series. Hotel magnate Ted Wheetly is tough on his arrogant hard partying son, Carson (Ashley Parker Angel), who believes his wealthy, womanizer father drove his mother to her death. When Ted is killed in a speed boat accident, Detective Frank Walker (John Schneider) is assigned to investigate the case. As he digs deeper into the death, he becomes more and more suspicious of the scheming, seduction, greed, double-crossing and possibly even cold blooded murder.

Is Wild Things a good movie?

“Wild Things” is lurid trash, with a plot so twisted they’re still explaining it during the closing titles. It’s like a three-way collision between a softcore sex film, a soap opera and a B-grade noir. — Rogerebert.com
