The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Skin I Live In (2011)

Starring: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya
Director: Pedro Almodovar

A plastic surgeon creates a synthetic skin. He's using a mysterious woman as the test subject. A woman who also secret of his obsessions and haunted past.

My Take:
Once again Almodovar proves why he's been one of the most intriguing film makers of the last thirty years. This time coming closer to horror than he ever has before.
Without giving much away (as I never try to spoil the goodies), the movie has you thinking one way at the beginning. Then about half way through the back story comes to light and adds a whole different dimension. Which sets up the twisted third act.
It's a dark and excellent movie.

Rating: So good
