‘In Their Skin’ loses much of its surprise and distinction by the second act

In Their Skin

Director by Jeremy Power Regimbal

Written by Joshua Close

Canada, 2012

Following a still raw and recent family tragedy, Mark (Joshua Close), Mary (Selma Blair), and their nine-year-old son Brendon (Quinn Lord) take a therapeutic sylvan sabbatical to their family cottage. One morning, they are unceremoniously introduced to the Zakowski’s, an overly ingratiating family consisting of a married couple, Bobby and Jane, and their big-for-his-age son Jared (James D’Arcy, Rachel Miner, Alex Ferris). After, when Mark is obligated to invite them over to dinner, things start to spiral into a dark and perilous situation when the true intentions of the Zakowski’s are slowly revealed.

Initially, In Their Skin is often gripping and tense. The film plays on a primal level of fear that we can all identify with, the fear of letting something dangerous into our homes. The characters are put into real and unavoidable

Scariest Movie Ever: Two Slasher Icons Are Dead and Only Four Films Remain

And then there were four. After the tournament’s closest battle came to an end with a come-from-behind winner, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre eked its way into The Final Four alongside The Thing, Alien and The Exorcist. Essentially we’re down to the impossible choices, but while a horror movie tournament is one thing, figuring out with of these baddies would best each other in real life is a bit easier. Today’s match-up sees Ridley Scott‘s hallway of terror go up against the devil in Ms. Blair, but if the mutli-mouthed E.T.s actually had to fight off a demon, it seems obvious that evil would prevail (unless The Queen had the courage to jump out of an airlock after getting possessed). On the same front, a family of cannibals with their own meat locker is terrifying, but they’d be quick work for the body-stealing Thing, especially

Four college pledges are forced to spend the night in a deserted old mansion where they get killed off one by one by the monstrous surviving members of a family massacre years earlier for trespassing on their living grounds.

Review:

I hate Linda Blair. There! I said it and I mean it too. Why do I hate Ms. Blair at all you ask? I certainly don’t know her so it doesn’t have anything to… More

Gossip Girl’s Chair Love Story Dies and Cinderella Fairy Tale Begins

So, the Dair vs. Chair argument has been put to bed (or, rather, left dry-Humphry-ing out of bed) on Gossip Girl. Dan (Penn Badgley) kissed a girl, Ms. Blair (Leighton Meester) and he liked it. Blair, however, did not.

“Why kiss anymore toads?” – Blair

“Dan more Labrador than toad.” – Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski)

Blair’s eyes were once again opened to Mr. Chuck (Ed Westwick). I’ll admit it. I wanted to see a Blair and Dan fling. Personally, I’m tired of Chair. There is no doubt that the couple has chemistry. The unbridled sexual frustration the Blair and Chuck exhibit towards each other has kept fans and myself watching for four seasons straight. But, times must and always do change. The truth is, I’ve come to loathe Chuck’s abusive nature. Seeing Blair remiss from moving on has been painful to watch. She’s grown up; Chuck has not.
