In Their Skin (2012)

Director: Jeremy Power Regimbal

Stars: Selma Blair, Joshua Close, James D'Arcy, Rachel Miner

After the accidental death of their six-year-old daughter, the Hughes family escape their busy upscale suburban life and head to their isolated cottage for some quality time. An evening with their friendly neighbors is suddenly interrupted when one man's obsession with perfection escalates into a violent struggle, forcing the families to go beyond what they ever thought they were capable of in order to survive.

This is an old story. People get envious over another family's life, so they decide to work to take over those people's lives. That is the weirdest story, but you know there are more people than you would think that would do that to another family. I just wish this movie would have been more exciting or more twisted. That is what I wanted.

The acting was good in this movie, for what it was.  Selma Blair always gives a really good performance. She can always be counted on. She is one of the reasons to watch this movie. Rachel Miner was great at being that weird woman that works hard to get too close to people. In the movie, she looks like that girl that smelled bad in grade school and now she is grown up and crazy. It was a small cast for the movie.

I did want more gore and violence in this movie. It had some good shocking scenes, but I just really wanted more from this movie. It is a decent movie to watch once, but it is just a story that has been done better, in a shorter amount of time. This is a reason not to invite people over or let people invite themselves over into your home that you do not know. This is what can happen. Enjoy.
