Finally, a 'Species' Reboot: 'Under the Skin' Trailer

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | September 24, 2013 | Comments ()


It’s funny how very bad movies and very good movies can have almost identical plot descriptions. Species is one of the fantastic B-movies of the last few decades. It is an objectively terrible movie. But it has running and shooting and goopy special effects. There was something else … oh yeah, boobs. That movie could be summed up as: alien that takes the form of a gorgeous human woman seduces men in order to kill them for alien reproductive reasons.

That exact description seems to apply to Under the Skin, except it looks to be either good, or at least very very weird. We saw a teaser a few weeks ago, but here’s the newly released full trailer. Warning: the sound is trippy in this one.

Yeah, so acquiring a copy of Species to see was practically a requirement of being a 15 year old boy at the time. I think that anyone who feels the same way about this film will need several decades of therapy.

    I saw the trailer yesterday. The music sounds cool.

    Species was awesome. Even the weird CGI alien had a decidedly female form -- as if they were certain that the only reason anyone would see the film was the "hot alien babe" and couldn't make her into some sort of gross alien being. "Dammit, she still has to be hot!" was what a producer likely said.

    I snuck into a theater to see "Species" with my friends when we were thirteen- all dudes except me. None of us realized how much boobage there would be, and after they were like "Uh, heh heh...awkward!" It was still more fun than half the cheesy monster flicks that came out at the same time and looked exactly the same, but with more clothing and less interesting creatures.

    "This video is no longer available due to copyright claim by Optimum releasing" written in plain white text over a black background isn't all that trippy, and there was no music.

    Awwww. 'Trailer not available.'
