Weird, disturbing, confusing, explicit, odd but memorable sci-fi
- Under the Skin review by PV
This is such a weird film - I found it rather disturbing but it did stick in my mind for ages afterwards. It's the sort of film whose images could give those of a nervous disposition nightmares...
As you'd expect from former ad-man Glazer, it is beautifully filmed, looking like a pop video in parts.
Set in 2014 Referendum Scotland, with some incomprehensible Glasgow accents (use the subs), it went completely into weirdness at the film seduction - which is surprisingly explicit. I shall never look at Celtic fans the same way again...There then follows another seduction and another and really disturbing weirdness.
I am not a sci-fi fan and am not really sure what it was all about (maybe I shall find someone who's read the book to tell me). I think it's about an alien who wants to be human - but who knows?
But I would really like to have seen this on the big screen because the visuals deserve it. But maybe I'd have a stiff drink first...

Don't waste your time with watching this Zzzz film
- Under the Skin review by SW
Can't believe this is a film made in 2013. It's like something from the 70's .
It must have been made on a very limited budget and script.
Take my advise and don't bother watching it. As it is totally Naff. No story. No acting . I watched it all the way through as I hoped it might get better. It did not, now I'm wishing I had not wasted my time on it.
Basic story is female alien gets zipped into the skin of a female victim. Who then drips round Scotland looking for prey. To take back to a derelict building, then she strips and the poor chap, thinks there luck is in , so follows her across a black floor, then they are consumed in fluid. Then she's off to pick next victim. This carry a on pretty much for the entire film.
I would have enjoy waxing the husbands leg more

Under the Skin

Visually fascinating, with music to match. Not sure what it was about, but I watched it twice - this must mean something...
I would recommend the film - be good to see it in a group on a big screen.

Found it boring, slightly disturbing in places..
- Under the Skin review by CP Customer
I gave it a go, but the first 30 mins were fairly repetitive and not very interesting. I'll stick with a film if I think its going somewhere but found myself fast forwarding through it to see if anything was going to actually happen... I wouldn't recommend it. I don't mind disturbing, boring doesn't do it fro me though...
