    It’s a little challenging to review this without getting into spoiler territory, but I’ll try my best. 

    Under the Skin is a truly dense and compelling movie. I guess it isn’t necessarily for everyone, but as a mixed genre between science fiction and arthouse horror, this movie was practically made for me.
