Cold Skin

Critics Consensus

Cold Skin exerts a strong visual pull, even if all that icy atmosphere isn't a truly satisfying substitute for a story that dares to go somewhere different.

Movie Info

On the edge of the Antarctic Circle, a ship approaches a desolate island, far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man who is on his way to assume the post of weather observer and live in solitude at the end of the earth. He finds no trace of the man he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name. For the next twelve months, his entire world will consist of a deserted cabin, trees, rocks, silence and the surrounding sea.

  • Cold Skin is a beautiful dark film that feels like it unfortunately is missing something story-wise for it all to be absolutely fascinating. The acting and practical effects show great talent ...

    April 11, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It is doomed to lie in that limbo of productions that, despite having a good number of elements in its favor, can fall into a sad oblivion fueled by its lack of "ground". [Full Review in Spanish]

  • Cold Skin takes the Man Versus Nature narrative conflict to an extreme ... [but] leans heavily, to its detriment, on a Man Versus Man conflict that never quite pays off.

    July 16, 2019 | Rating: 2.75/5 | Full Review…
  • Cold Skin is a diluted adaptation of Sánchez Piñol's tragic novel with a timid lovecraftian conception. [Full review in Spanish]
