Trivia:
Although Rich's animal totem is mentioned in one of the late scenes in the film, it is loosely suggested as being discussed earlier. In fact, an additional scene that had Rich and Eva discussing their animal totems was cut out of the film by Schelenz due to its slow pacing. In order to add a sense of foreshadowing, this cut scene revealed that Rich's animal totem was a coyote and Eva's was a deer - the two animals that are killed along their road trip.See more »

Great film...so much more than it seems! NOT found footage., 8 June 2012
Author: MissOceanB from Canada

Very interesting film...leaves you wanting more. I watched it 3 times and discovered more each time. This film requires you to do some thinking...which is why some reviewers likely rated it poorly as they simply couldn't "imagine" or "question" or think about what's going on here.

A lot of reviews mention that this is a "Found Footage" film. It isn't... and makes me question if those that wrote the review actually watched the film. And if you've watched the movie from beginning to end, you will clearly figure that out.

The producer/writer/director Seve Schelenz adds many interesting slants to this film and, although it may appear slow in the beginning, I found the opposite. You want to know more. The characters are strong and despite finding "Rich's" character a bit 'nasal' and annoying, "Eva" makes up for it with her voice, tone and looks.

If you are looking for a "standard", predictable Hollywood horror film, this film is not for you. If you are open-minded and like low-budget yet very effective and all-encompassing horror-thrillers, Skew will not disappoint! Well done.
