Deceptions is a 1990 erotic drama film starring Nicollette Sheridan, Harry Hamlin and Robert Davi. It was directed by Ruben Preuss and written by Ken Denbow and Richard Taylor.[1] The film received a nomination for a CableACE Award for "best international dramatic special or movie.[2] AllRovi reviewer Linda Rasmussen called the film, "a remarkably predictable, non-erotic thriller with little to recommend it".[1]


A homicide cop falls for a beautiful suspect. When wealthy socialite Adrienne kills her husband Douglas, she claims self-defense. Nick, the cop assigned to the case is suspicious but becomes obsessed with the sensual young woman.



The film was followed by a 1994 sequel titled Deceptions II: Edge of Deception.
