My theory: Cold Skin is a weak chemistry combination of The Lighthouse (2019) and The Shape Of Water (2017).

I admit to making a judgmental mistake when turning on Cold Skin. I thought it was going to be like a Jaws-esq type movie where we don’t see the monsters for the majority of the movie.

NOPE. I WAS WRONG.

Cold Skin is a lot more of a character study then a monster movie. The isolation is more of a monster than the beasts who arrive from the see. You escape to the island running in fear from something, only to learn to stay and fight but at the sacrifice of your mind.

Unfortunately the movie doesn’t deliver the depth of its message with its deep asperations.

  • I had not seen Ray Stevenson is anything in a LONG TIME. I am surprised he has not been a John Wick villain yet. It appears he has been more on the TV circuit of recent years.
  • Movie was made in Spain and France originally. The more you know!
