Twisted and hypnotic full trailer for Under The Skin might melt your brain
Director Jonathan Grazer's (BIRTH, SEXY BEAST) hypnotic horror/sci-fi tale UNDER THE SKIN premiered at TIFF last year to mixed, if not still positive reviews (read ours here), most of them singling out that the film is no doubt a visually stunning and/or shocking film to say the least. Starring Scarlett Johansson as an "alien seductress" who "preys upon hitchhikers in Scotland" the film looks like a complete visual mindf*ck, as demonstrated in this new full trailer, which isn't a bad thing at all, unless you're under the influence of hallucinagenics while watching it, which could make for a very bad trip.
Melt your brain:
With the promise of a nude Scarlett Johansson, this already has a solid audience lining up to see it, but once you get past that it looks like an exceptionally trippy flick and I love the hints of both the horror and sci-fi genres. In fact, if the film didn't advertise that Johansson was an alien, it would retain a deeper mystery to it that would likely heighten the desire to see the film. However, since it's based on the novel by Michel Faber it's difficult to hide that aspect. Regardless, it still has me intrigued, both for the aforementioned Johansson bits and the batshit insanity of the visuals.
UNDER THE SKIN gets under your skin on April 4, 2014 in NY & LA. and everywhere else on April 11, 2014.
