In Their Skin Preview | Blu-Ray.com

“In Their Skin” deserves some amount of credit for even attempting to root its tale of a home invasion in a psychologically troubling place of envy and obsession. It’s an open attempt to understand the headspace of the antagonists, but the effect gradually washes away the longer the feature lingers on its cast to articulate the heightened concern. Although the movie kicks off superbly with a chilling opening half that’s inventive and disquieting, the payoff indulges the worst instincts of the subgenre, forcing shallow acts of intimidation and humiliation on material that’s at its best when stewing in a mystifying atmosphere of unraveling behavior. (In Their Skin, Indie film) 4/10
