I Eat Your Skin Reviews
Starring: William Joyce, Dan Stapleton, and Heather Hewitt
Director: Del Tenney
Playboy novelist Tom Harris (Joyce) travels with his agent (Stapleton) to remote Voodoo Island to gather research and inspiration for his next adventure novel. Here, he finds a beautiful girl (Hewitt) who only he can save from the groping hands of oatmeal-faced, bug-eyed zombies.
"I Eat Your Skin" is a badly written film with a plot that's only unpredictable element is "can this get any worse?" (the answer is usually 'yes'), populated by ill-conceived characters that barely rate as figures, and performed by third-rate actors. (Our hero might have been less annoying if he had been played by a better actor, but I doubt it. He is at his worst when he decides that [i]he[/i] has to land the plane they're in, because obviously he's better than the professional pilot at the controls. Which begs the question why the pilot was even hired in the first place. The annoying arrogance hangs about Tom like the stench of that cologne I'm sure he wears way too much of.)
While there are several moments of unintended hilarity, they are too spread out to make this film an enjoyable experience, even with the wittiest of commentators for a Bad Movie Night. Oh... and there's no skin eating, other than what you might do to yourself to cure your boredom while watching this movie.
Perhaps if edited down to about an hour (instead of its current running time of 84 minutes), it might be watchable. As it is, it's a fillm that's not worth the effort it'll take to put it in the DVD player.
