Trivia

For the "Hollywood" version of the film, Schelenz had developed an additional opening and closing scene. These additional bookend-style scenes were to be shot on film and the first involved an establishing shot of the video camera tucked away in a pawnshop. The same essential shot would be used at the end of the film but in a different pawnshop to show the video camera being "passed on" to the next victim. Schelenz decided to scrap these shots in the end. See more »

Creepy...
1 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie as it keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what kind of creepiness is going to jump out at you next! Most thriller/horror movies out there today are solely into shock value, rampant with gratuitous gore. Skew doesn't rely on over-the-top gore to scare you, it succeeds in doing so with great camera work, creepy images and freaky incidents. What starts out as a fun road trip becomes a gradual descent into the hellish unknown. You really feel for the two main characters in this film, they are likable, and yet the terror surrounding them seems beyond their control. Unlike most movies today, Skew really makes you think. You'll be trying to figure out what's going on all the way up to the very end. And then the reveal is splendidly disturbing.
