Cold Skin – Spain/France, 2017

‘We are never too far from those we hate’

Cold Skin is a 2017 Spanish-French science fiction horror film directed by Xavier Gens (The Crucifixion; The ABCs of Death, segment “X Is for XXL”; Frontier(s)) from a screenplay by Jesús Olmo (28 Weeks Later), based on the novel by Albert Sánchez Piñol. It stars David Oakes, Aura Garrido and Ray Stevenson. 

On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, in the years after World War I, a steam ship approaches a desolate island far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man, on his way to assume the lonely post of weather observer, to live in solitude for a year at the end of the world.

However, on shore he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name. The rest is forest, a deserted cabin, rocks, silence, and the surrounding sea. And then the night begins to fall…

Reviews:

“Stevenson and Oakes, non-star British players, are excellent, with Oakes going from fresh-faced naif to bloodied, bearded semi-hermit, then opening up to new experiences which still drive him mad, and Stevenson living out the (overworked) opening Nietzsche quote (you know the one) by looking into the abyss and becoming the monster. It’s a bleak, rather thoughtful film with bursts of exciting, but grim action and Gens’ best to date.” The Kim Newman Web Site

  1. The Canary islands are spanish territory as it is Palma de mallorca or Madrid, therefore “Spain and the Canary Islands ” as filming locations
    Is wrong and missinforming.
    The canary islands are spanish soil as the Isle os whigt is british soil.

    • Yes, however, the information posted was from other sources and we were unsure whether filming may have taken place on the Spanish mainland AND the Spanish Canary Islands. IMDb currently states “Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain” and “Iceland” so the post has been amended accordingly. Does “Gettingitright” also include spelling because your comment clearly doesn’t “Getitright” and most people would conclude it is petty in the extreme.
