Is today’s modern age of cinema reinvention is key to stay relevant, and in the horror genre this sentiment is magnified just that little bit more.
And so we come to new gross out flick ‘He Took His Skin Off For Me’ directed by London film graduate Ben Aston and based on a short story by Maria Hummer.
In what promises to be a stomach churning special effect bonanza, it tells the story of a man who takes his skin off for his girlfriend and why it isn’t the best idea; you think?
A 30 second teaser was released for the film around Halloween, and using powerful imagery to certainly unnerve the audience.
When it comes to shocking films over the past five years the first films on your lips are the Human Centipede films which showed horror fans a new kind of gross imagery.
Whether ‘He Took His Skin Off For Me’ is in the same league remains to be seen, or it could possibly be an unsettling, well made piece that doesn’t rely on the shock value of its title to compensate for a weaker story.
Here’s the teaser trailer for He Took His Skin Off For Me –
