Under the Skin
Who shall I have next?...
This film will not appeal to everyone, as it is slow-moving and designed to make you think. The plotline concerns an alien who assumes the form of an alluring female and prowls the streets of Scotland, leading lonely and unsuspecting men to their doom. However as she goes from victim to victim, she starts to change and to realise things about herself. Note that there is quite a bit of nudity, especially full-frontal male nudity.
