Product Description

After a tragic family accident, Mark (Joshua Close, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and Mary Hughes (Selma Blair, Hellboy) retreat with their son to the family's vacation home in the woods. The Hughes are awoken early the next morning by their new neighbors, Bobby (James D'Arcy, Hitchcock) and Jane (Rachel Miner, Sons Of Anarchy) Sakowski, who invite themselves over for dinner. What starts out as merely an awkward evening turns sinister as Bobby's questions become intrusive and his envy of the Hughes becomes more aggressive. As matters escalate, it becomes clear that there's no limit to what Bobby will do to get what Mark has, and ultimately the Hughes' will to survive will be put to the test. Featuring performances that are both mesmerizing and unforgettable, In Their Skin is a heart-stopping home-invasion thriller that you won't soon forget.

What did I just watch, and why did I watch it? March 14 2013
By S. Boone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To cut to the chase, I have no idea what the two positive reviewers saw in this film that I didn't see. This has got to be one of the worst films I've seen in some time. It's a home invasion film, with a grieving family retreating to a remote vacation home, only to meet some "new neighbors" who are not what they seem. And what, exactly, are they? Annoying, for starters, but then again, so are the main characters. Not a likeable person in this film to be found. Anyway, these "new neighbors" get invited for dinner and there are all kind of alarm bells going off as to why it may not be a good thing that they're inside the same house with the other family, but still, they stay for dinner, only to then get tossed out but then return, in full psychotic behavior. I had a very difficult time following this, the dialog is incoherent and annoying, and overall the film is very muddled and confusing, to say the least. I used to snap up almost any IFC Film because they tended to be off-beat & interesting, and now, well, I think I will use a lot of discretion when choosing. This is probably one of the worst films I have seen in a while. I usually try to at least find something worthwhile in a film, even unintentional humor will kick it up a notch in my rating, but this, well, nothing of value to be found. Avoid.

Chilling and Memorable March 23 2013
By Boidiva02 - Published on Amazon.com
I first saw this movie on-demand through my cable company, and rented it because I have enjoyed previous work from star Selma Blair. I wasn't totally sure what to expect and was rather surprised at how good this film is. The plot revolves around a couple named Mark and Mary Hughes, played by Joshua Close and Selma Blair, who mourning the death of their daughter and their marriage still no totally healed escape to their country cottage for some rest and to reconnect. They bring along their young son, Brendan played by Quinn Lord. One morning they awaken to a sound and look out the window to see some strangers in their yard. Eventually these strangers say they are neighbors and worm their way into the Hughes life. Over the course of time Mary starts to feel uncomfortable around the strangers, named Jane and Bobby Sakowski, and calls them on it. This opens up a can of worms and well let's just say that w/out spoiling the plot, the Sakowski's are not who they claim to be and it gets very intense from there.

Selma Blair gives a decent performance, but the real stars here are the actors playing the psychos, Rachel Minor as Jane and James D'Arcy as Bobby. They truly shine and bring life to these unhinged characters. I'll warn you, this movie is not one for the faint of heart; it contains some gruesome stuff, including some violence which may not be suitable for all viewers; and some sexual language and acts.

I found this movie to be chilling, it had me literally jumping out of my seat a few times, and is pretty memorable, mostly because it is so dark and twisty. The plot is slightly convoluted but the performances more than make up for it.

Lost interest in this at 46 minutes in...became torture to watch the rest Dec 13 2012
By HillBuzz dot ORG - Published on Amazon.com

Paid $9.99 to rent this primarily based on the two really glowing reviews left on here by people who called this the best movie they'd seen in a while etc. Beware: I think those reviewers might be marketing people working for the studio that put this out.

I really like psychological thrillers, mysteries, horror, etc. I like Selma Blair as well. I had no expectations of what this movie was or what it could be, but I took a chance on it and wish I could get a refund. It was terrible. There's no real mystery to this as you should be able to figure out what happens in the first ten minutes. It's very obvious what's going on.

The first 30 minutes or so are somewhat interesting, as this uncomfortable feeling builds at a dinner party that only one side of the table wanted to happen...and then you start to wonder how the other people are going to get out of the bad situation. I laughed because it reminded me a little of holiday meals with relatives I don't like and who I wish would leave...but they can't take the hint.

By the 46 minute mark I just gave up on the movie and realized this was one I'd have to sit through and endure until it was over because I spent the $9.99 on it and I just can't turn it off and not see the rest of it.

This is the kind of movie that ends up playing very late at night on a random cable channel and is only watched by people who have nothing else to do and can't get to sleep. I would never recommend this to anyone...definitely don't waste money on it and don't believe the reviewers who are giving it 5-stars and saying it is the best thing ever.

I fell for that scam this time. I saw two glowing reviews and one bad one and I thought the person who wrote the bad review was wrong...but now I have to side with that person because this movie stunk.

By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is another home invasion film. Mark (Joshua Close), Mary (Selma Blair), and their son Brendon (Quinn Lord) get away to their summer home when their daughter is killed in a car accident. While at their retreat they meet Bobby (James D'Arcy), Jane (Rachel Miner), and their son Jared (Alex Ferris). They get together for dinner where Bobby asks all kinds of questions and exhibits a high creep factor. This aspect was done very well as you can sense the creepiness in scene and characters.

There is of course the later hostage situation and from the title and write up you know that these people want to take over the lives of the occupants. They did a lot to try to set this up, but I just didn't feel it like the creepiness. The problem with this film is that it lacked character. The characters were creepy, but were not colorful. Because the family was so bland, with Selma Blair looking gaunt, like a heroin addict, I didn't really care if they lived or died. In fact I was hoping they got knocked off early because they were boring. View at your own risk.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Selma Blair).

IN THEIR SKIN stars Selma Blair and Josh Close as a young couple who move with their gentle son into Dad's family home. Of course, there's a tragic family secret haunting them. Soon they meet their over effusive neighbors played by James D'arcy and Rachel Miner and their bullying son who gradually insinuate themselves into their lives.
The film moves languidly and there are no real surprises or genuine thrills. Blair sleepwalks through her role and D'arcy adopts a Hannibal Lechter impersonation that just doesn't work.
More intensity in the pacing and performances might have had better results. Sadly, IN THEIR SKIN just doesn't succeed.
