Skinner is a film wherein Ted Raimi goes around, cutting off skin of girls and then wearing the skin. This has SOMETHING to do with Traci Lords, who spends most of the film lying in her bed, half-naked, rolling around, and masturbating to Ted Raimi's picture. This involves Ricki Lake, as well, who is dating this abusive guy. He's abusive, I guess, since he wants a clean house. And he is suspicious of Ted Raimi. Ted Raimi just moved in with Ricki, you see. And he got blood on his shirt once, and that's suspicious. Meanwhile, Ted lives a double life as a factory worker. Who kills people. And wears skin. And then has a friendly relationship with Ricki. Before going out. And killing again. And as he kills again, he explains that his dad is the reason he skins people alive. This has SOMETHING to do with Traci Lords being in some water. And as Traci Lords masturbates in the bed, her landlord watches her.
Along the way, some black guy gets his skin completely cut off, and Ted Raimi wears it and walks down the street, talking jive, as he stalks another victim. Also, a dog dies from eating skin. And.. uhh... this all turns into an unfun climax that leaves the viewer very unsatisfied.
Pretty confusing for only really having 3 characters that do anything. The director made the mistake of muddling up a cool concept with dream sequences, flashbacks, and hiding Traci Lords's face behind her hair. The picture quality is terrible, and the sound quality is worse. There is some decent gore here, but it's not really worth seeking out just for that. Cool concept, not a very cool film.
