Pedro Almodovar is famous for making artful melodramas – but his latest is a different kind of beast. The Skin I Live In is a horror movie. More specifically, a mad scientist horror movie, and judging from the teaser, it’s going to be essential viewing for people who like getting creeped out.
The movie stars Antonio Banderas, a long way from Puss-in-Boots or the Nasonex bee. From what I can gather, he’s created some kind of humanoid creature who tries to escape, first through the door and then by threatening to commit suicide. Bring the kids!
