[Slamdance 2012] Whispering Tattoos in ‘Comforting Skin’

Reminding me a bit of the classic “Tales From the Crypt” episode, above you’ll find the first image for Derek Franson’s indie Comforting Skin, which tells the tale of a looney chick with a tattoo. The film has been announced at part of January’s Slamdance film Festival, which takes place alongside the Sundance Fest in Park City, Utah.

A lonely young woman’s desperate need for emotional and sexual companionship draws her into a surreal and ultimately destructive relationship with a shifting and whispering tattoo she has willed to life on her skin.

Check out the film’s official website for a slew of imagery. The official one sheet and trailer are both posted inside.
