The Trailer for Cold Skin Shows Socially Significant Sci-fi-Horror

Posted on: January 20th, 2018

A brand new trailer has been unleashed for Cold Skin, the latest horror-sci-fi from director Xavier Gens (The Divide, The Crucifixion). The film is set a few years after World War 1 and follows a man who is tasked with being a weather observer on a desolate island. However, when he arrives he realises that horror lurks round every corner upon discovering demonic creatures that come out at night.

The film has a social relevance that can’t be ignored, as humans are seen as invading a land that does not belong to them. It looks scary and beautiful in parts, reminiscent of a gender-swapped version of Guillermo del Toro’s soon-to-be-released The Shape of Water.

On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, in the years after World War I, a steam ship approaches a desolate island far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man, on his way to assume the lonely post of weather observer, to live in solitude for a year at the end of the world. But on shore he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name. The rest is forest, a deserted cabin, rocks, silence, and the surrounding sea. And then the night begins to fall…

Cold Skin stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone, The Book of Eli), David Oakes (Truth or Dare, TV’s The White Queen) and double-Goya nominee Aura Garrido (The Body, Stockholm). Be sure to catch the film when it screens at the Glasgow Horror Channel FrightFest event this March.
