Cold Skin

This was a compelling film, with rich visuals and well realized props and sets for the time this story is set in.

In 1914, just after Franz Ferdinand's assassination that eventually caused World War I, a steamship approaches a desolate island on the edge of the Antarctic Circle, where a young nameless man is poised to take the post of weather observer, to live in solitude at the ends of the earth for an entire year until the arrival of his replacement. For the next twelve months, his entire world will consist of a deserted cabin, the surrounding sea, and dangerous strange beings that he discovers are sharing the island.

I liked this movie..and suggest if you get a chance to watch it then cuddle up with some hot popcorn and coco...because it is chilly! There are some odd twists that occur, which are actually disturbing...but more because of how bizarre humans can become when alone or under too much stress...or both.

Excellent job done with sets, costumes and the beautiful makeup/prosthetics worn by one of the lead actors...the one with the cold skin...very nice.
