REVIEW: Skins

Published

on

skins

Netflix has a good selection of horror movies in their vast content library, and often times there are obscure films that you simply would not have discovered if it were not for the streaming service adding it to that library.

That is exactly what ‘Skins’ is.

The Spanish shock-film debuted back in 2017, but it now making it’s rounds on Netflix, generating more buzz than perhaps it did during it’s original release. Directed by Eduardo Casanova and starring Ana Maria Polvorosa, Macarena Gomez, and Candela Pena, the film will certainly leave a lasting impression.

The synopsis says: “Deformed, disfigured characters must find a way to deal with society shunning their differences”, and that’s the story that is told throughout the film, which surprisingly ties each of the characters together in a way that would make Quentin Tarrantino proud.

What makes ‘Skins’ interesting is that aside from the ridiculousness of seeing someone with a anus where a mouth should be and a mouth where an anus is, it actually hold substance via all the little intricate stories being told. You can be distracted by the visuals, but the story is surprisingly…sensible.

Yes, the film is absurd. Yes, it may even gross out members of the audience. And, yes, perhaps some will view it as a comedy rather than an actual shock-film, and while it won’t make my list of films that are a must watch, it certainly is a film that I will always remember seeing.

If you’re looking for something that will shock, and actually hold a solid storyline, then ‘Skins’ may be perfect for tonight, especially if you have run out of content to watch on Netflix.
