Bad Influence was released well into the aftermath of the Rob Lowe sex tape scandal. The film was an ironic choice for Lowe, as its story involves a sex tape. The psychological thriller was directed by Curtis Hanson (LA Confidential, 8 Mile), written by David Koepp (Carlito's Way, Death Becomes Her) and also stars James Spader, Lisa Zane, and Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross.

Masquerade came out in 1988 when Rob Lowe was hotter than ever. This was just before his sex tape scandal, which unfolded later the same year. Ironically, the movie features arguably one of Lowe's hottest nude scenes ever. The film is also notable for its supporting cast of Kim Catrall (Sex & the City), Doug Savant and Dana Delany (both of Desperate Housewives), who both hit stardom much later with their successful television shows. The erotic suspense film also stars Meg Tilly and John Glover.
