The Reflecting Skin
Directed by Philip Ridley
Seth is a mischievous eight-year-old growing up in the harsh realities of 1950s rural Idaho. 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.
A mischievous boy finds out his neighbor is a vampire in this dreamy gem.
Cast: Codie Lucas Wilbee, Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Cooper, Jeff Walker, Duncan Fraser
Beautiful, dreamlike American gothic. Doesn't really belong in the horror genre though.
hey shudder, how about you find this movie in the fifth dimension or whatever- I want to watch it.
the one movie on my queue i looked forward to watching on this service, since nothing new had come in in sometime, and it's not available in my fucking region, very close to cancelling this service.
there will be blood by way of roald dahl. this one's up there, folks.
Playwright Philip Ridley's directorial debut is visually gorgeous, dramatically inert, and awkwardly performed. Young, furry Viggo Mortenson is sexy AF and there's some good ideas in there, but it just doesn't come together.
