I guess this is just French week on the ol’ blogger. In My Skin left me feeling kind of hollow but not necessarily in a bad way. The film itself just has such extreme focus that the viewer tends to forget about the grand aspect of the plot, which is basically nonessential anyways.
If you’ve ever had extreme anxiety, OCD or episodes of self harm; this movie is going to effect you more. The shots are cringe inducing without relying heavily on a gore gross-out effect. The effects that are used however, are extremely well done.
Overall, I think this was really successful. Ultimately I watch horror movies to feel a certain way such as fearful or disgusted- god we’re all a bunch of sick fucks aren’t we?
