‘Cold Skin’ Trailer Goes to War With Demons From Atlantis!

‘Cold Skin’ Trailer Goes to War With Demons From Atlantis!

One film we’re really looking forward to is Xavier Gens’ (The Divide, Frontiere(s), The Crucifixion) Cold Skin, which premiered at last year’s Sitges Film Festival and will soon screen at the Glasgow Film Festival this March.

Cold Skin takes place on the edge of the Antartic Circle, in the years after World War I, a steamship approaches a desolate island far from all shipping lanes. On board is a young man, on his way to assume the lonely post of weather observer, to live in solitude for a year at the end of the world. But on shore, he finds no trace of the man whom he has been sent to replace, just a deranged castaway who has witnessed a horror he refuses to name. The rest is forest, a deserted cabin, rocks, silence, and the surrounding sea. And then the night begins to fall…

It stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone, Big Game) and David Oakes (The Borgias, The White Queen) along with Spain’s double-Goya nominee Aura Garrido.

The first official trailer has finally been unleashed upon the world and it looks like a Guillermo del Toro film, especially The Shape of Water, mixed with one of the three Planet of the Apes prequels. The footage gives away that Stevenson’s character intends on exterminating these creatures, all while Oakes is falling in love with one. The biggest punch to the gut comes when Stevenson exclaims that he’s invading their territory, giving the film some social relevance.  I’ve heard really good things about Cold Skin, which we hope will be released sooner rather than later. We’ll update you when we know the who and when.

    Demons from Atlantis?
    Thanks for another spoiler Bloody Disgusting. Guess I’ll have to stop visiting every time I’m looking forward to a movie to avoid spoilers.

      Or maybe you should figure out what a spoiler is. I’m sure the movie doesn’t end with the words “they are demons… demons from atlantis.” The trailer unequivocally showed that the movie was man vs. Merpeople. And they say the phrase “demons from Atlantis.” So clearly, nothing written was spoilery as it was all in the trailer.

        It was written in the title of the article. That title gives information before people decide to watch the trailer or even click on the article. I didn’t watch the trailer. If I’m sure I’m gonna watch a movie, I don’t need to see footage beforehand. Provides a better movie experience imo.

    Aranyo’s cinematography looks absolutely gorgeous and would be amazing to see on a cinema screen. Still, yet another US trailer that gives far too much away…

    How hard up do you have to be to fall in love with that?

  • diapers

    Forced myself to stop the trailer about a third of the way through b/c it seems to be quickly diving into spoilery. Am putting this on the must-watch list, looks awesome. Is it just me, or did this article go ahead and spoil major plot points in the title?

    • Necro

      Yep!

    Xavier Gens? I’m definitely down! I still haven’t seen ‘The Crucifixion’ yet, but another I’m eager to see. I just think the man is a good director.

  • Matheus Martins

    Movie seemed very interesting and promising until the part with a guy falling in love with a fishwoman……

    I just can’t take it seriously anymore. Also, the only lovecraft concept in this are the fishpeople rising from the deep and oldschool setting. The rest looks completely off.

    • Evan3

      I actually thought it was more like a man-dog relationship than a lovers relationship.

  • Evan3

    Even from this short trailer, it seems like the character motives are all over the place. Cool idea, but the film looks like a mess.
