"Under The Skin"

“Under The Skin”

Out of the myriad independent genre films to be releasing in the near future, few are as anticipated as highly as Jonathan Glazer’s mysterious sci-fi thriller Under The Skin, which stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien who uses her feminine wiles and bodily assets to ensnare her human prey. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to generally positive reviews and was picked up for distribution by A24 films. A full trailer was just recently released, giving viewers a look into this existential, surreal oddity.

It opens with Scarlett Johansson putting on red lipstick, as she goes out to pick up one of her unsuspecting victims. As the trailer goes on, we are pulled further and further down the rabbit hole, treated to an assortment of bizarre imagery. The film was reportedly shot, with real, unsuspecting people, where Johansson would wander the streets of Glasgow, Scotland and reactions to her would be recorded.

There’s currently no release date set for the film, but be sure to check out the trailer below and stay tuned to Diaboliquemagazine.com for more on Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin!
