In Derek Franson’s indie Comforting Skin, 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. It reminded me of the classic “Tales From the Crypt” episode in which a tattoo came to life. Too bad it’s nothing like it. Having world premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Ryan Daley writes this:
“After its supremely eerie first act, ‘Comforting Skin’ disintegrates into a boring indie melodrama, complete with overwrought arguments and tedious grievances.”
