Under the Skin Starring Scarlett Johansson - Movie Review - Spoilers

 by Ken Parker

What could a film starring Scarlett Johansson as a mysterious woman who picks up men who are then lured into abandoned buildings for what they hope could be sex, have for people to watch beside the obvious? Well, lots more if they like strange movies. Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and David Cronenberg are some of the filmmakers that the film, Under the Skin, has been compared to in terms of style and mood. The film is not a Species remake or clone. Not even close. The film goes to the deep end of the strange pool but in a good way.
