Critic Reviews for The Skin of the Teeth

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (1)

  • Proves consistently intriguing throughout and marks its writer-director as a talent to watch, even if it ultimately doesn't fully live up to its stylistic ambitions.

  • The first act had its teeth in me...The Hitchcockian references perfectly keeps the opening unbalanced...But then the second act begins.

    Jul 15, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Matthew Wollin's first feature might be a shoestring indie with only two settings - a bachelor pad and a police station interrogation room - and a single camera set-up, but it keeps us enraptured until the very end.

    Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Skin of the Teeth is an unusual film; not quite horror, not quite social commentary, but captivating due to its enveloping sense of unease and unpredictability.

  • Believe nothing; savour it all

    May 27, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Wollin's filmmaking is gleefully hypnotic, dragging the audience down into a rabbit hole with Josef, twisting and turning in unusual directions.
