The Reflecting Skin

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.

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
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.
Zzzzzzz that was a nice, long siesta!
Exploding frogs never sounded so good.
This movie was as abysmal. It's cinematically beautiful but the story is ridiculous...and not in a good way. It's trite and trying so so hard to be really artsy. Even Vigo Mortensen couldn't save this tripe. Definitely not horror and would be better suited for Netflix... not shudder imo
