Under the Skin (15)

An alien entity (Scarlett Johansson) inhabits the earthly form of a seductive young woman who trawls Glasgow and rural Scotland in search of human prey it is here to plunder. It lures lonely men into an otherworldly dimension where they are stripped and consumed. But life in all its complexity starts to change the alien. It begins to see itself as ‘she’, as human, with tragic and terrifying consequences. UNDER THE SKIN is about seeing ourselves through alien eyes. Director Jonathan Glazer’s film is creepy, strange and uncompromising was ranked one of the best films of 2014 and named one of the best horror films of the 21st century (so far).

“Under the Skin is just so visually free and uninhibited that there is an intense dark, destructive sexiness in everything about it – quite apart from the hilarious, bizarre, mesmeric eroticism of the film itself. It is a work of subcutaneous potency. It gets under your skin.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“It’s an intoxicating marvel, strange and sublime: it combines sci-fi ideas, gloriously unusual special effects and a sharp atmosphere of horror with the everyday mundanity of a woman driving about rainy Scotland in a battered transit van.”
Dave Calhoun, Time Out

“An amazement. A film of beauty and shocking gravity.”
Rolling Stone
