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.

  • The actors... invest their roles with conviction and craft, even if the story ultimately doesn't quite reward such seriousness of approach.

  • It feels more like a consequence of cut-rate, copy-and-paste computer effects.

  • Playing out more like a gender-swapped version of The Shape of Water than the Lovecraftian horror it wants to be, Gens' latest is visually pleasing, but ultimately empty.

    Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…
  • While Cold Souls has high ambitions, it falls a little flat. Whether the screenplay or the performances create the letdown, the film undeniably drags.

    Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Gens and Spanish cinematographer Daniel Aranyó do great work capturing the majestic beauty and inherent danger of the island and some of the action scenes are pulse-pounding, but those elements can't overcome the didactic "us vs them" narrative.

    Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The stylish visuals and creature designs hardly seem worth the trouble for a peculiarly tedious story that overall lacks excitement and emotional involvement. It's cold, indeed.
