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.
