“This is the best erotic thriller in cinema history. You should be proud of making this film,” another commented.

“An absolute classic. Genuinely creepy at times. Still makes me uneasy about getting into lifts,” they admitted.

Today, March 21, Stone took to Instagram once again to share a fan repost in celebration of the film’s anniversary. The video contained a mash-up of scenes from the film with the caption, “Happy birthday to one of my favourite movies, one that changed the world.
