Cold Skin is an upcoming Horror film influenced by H.P. Lovecraft’s literary work titled; The Shadow Over Innsmouth. Xavier Gens directs this film and enthusiasts of the genre will, with a doubt, become treated with amazing visuals. Earlier this year film distribution company Samuel Goldwyn Films acquired Cold Skin earlier this year.
The trailer arrived on YouTube, embedded above and will release on VOD and limited cinemas in September. Cold Skin delivers a tale of man versus the unknown centered on two protagonists that must battle unknown nocturnal species on a remote island.
The trailer for Cold Skin presents the overall tonality for the film. This execution is a rarity with these marketing vehicles. It is easy to conclude that the film Cold Skin will present viewers with drama and conflict between the central characters. From here, it presents subplots that include trust and survival. Emphasis on the latter may have a stronger presence in the latter part of Act II.
With the images provided in the trailer for Cold Skin, the cinematography is superb. Gens for those that are unaware of his resume, presents impressive visual storytelling. In terms of the acting, Cold Skin has a strong professional value. We’re looking forward to this Horror import. There are many films that pay homage to the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Cold Skin looks to be a strong entrant to this arena.
