Path√© has released more unsettling stills from Pedro Almodovar’s horror thriller The Skin I Live In. JoBlo.com has this roughly-translated synopsis:
Since his wife perished burnt in a car crash, Dr Ledgard (Antonio Banderas), a well respected plastic surgeon, gets interested in the creation of a new type of skin that could have saved his wife. Twelve years later he succeeds in cultivating it at his lab, taking advantage in the advance made on cellular therapy. To get to his goal he doesn’t doubt in trespassing the ethical limit of the transgenesis with human beings. But this will not be the only crime he will commit‚Ä¶
More after the cut, including a NSFW full-size view of the cropped shot above. Even more disturbing are descriptions of the novel on which the film is loosely based, Thierry Jonquet’s Tarantula — summaries which may spill major spoilers so don’t read them if you want to wait to be shocked.
