Hoping to achieve some measure of peace following the tragic death of their young daughter, Mark (Josh Close) and Mary (Selma Blair) and their young son have escaped to the family’s upscale vacation home in the woods. What at first appears to be the annoyance of having overly friendly neighbours soon turns into a nightmare for this grieving family, as their sinister agenda is revealed. Bobby (James D’Arcy) and Jane (Rachel Miner) are after ‘the perfect life’, and are capable of doing almost anything to achieve their goal.
IN YOUR SKIN is a home invasion nightmare that deliberately inches towards terror. First-time director Jeremy Power Regimbal instills an ever encompassing sense of dread and anxiousness as these two families circle each other in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Leading the way of brilliant performances all around, James D’Arcy shines as a powerhouse of manic and unpredictable energy. IN YOUR SKIN is a nuanced and utterly suspenseful gem of a thriller that will toy with you until its violent end.
