The Reflecting Skin

The Reflecting Skin

Directed by Philip Ridley

Seth is a mischievous eight-year-old growing up in the harsh realities of 1950s rural Idaho. He lives at home with his strict mother and guilt-ridden father, helping at the family gas station and waiting for his brother Cameron to return from the Pacific. But his whole world changes the day he decides the widowed neighbor woman, Dolphin Blue, is a vampire. Inspired by his father’s stories, Seth begins to believe she is responsible for the terrible events happening around him. His obsession continues to grow when Cameron comes home…and falls head over heels for his worst enemy.

one of my all time favourite films. Not really horror but uses familiar tropes from fantasy and horror folklore.

Wow! That was depressing. Poor kid. Strange film, but I didn’t hate it. One thing that did annoy me is that the film doesn’t end it just stops.

There is a tragic beauty to this film. Compelling, horrific, dreamlike. A yearning for freedom from a suffocating life

never expected to see this lovely twisted film in here. A good precedent on Summer of 84 as well.
