skin walker

Directed by: Christian Neuman

As Christian Neuman’s taut, stylish thriller opens, Regine, a psychologically fragile young woman, hides in the city, far from the dark and forbidding countryside of her childhood. She’s struggling to escape the traumatic events of her family’s past, especially the disastrous home birth experience of her brother Isaac, which led to her mother’s insanity and Isaac’s apparent death. When Regine’s grandmother is murdered years later, a disturbing question rises to the surface: is Isaac still alive, looking for revenge against a family which he feels has rejected him? Driven to heal the wounds of the past, Regine returns to face her family’s secrets and guilt, as well as her own role in these events. Featuring impressive performances by Amber Anderson (Emma, White Lie) and the legendary Udo Kier.

[Horák] matches each of the film’s periods to a different style: the 1960s to the Czech New Wave, the 1970s to normalization films, and the 1980s to documentary-like grainy footage. The stylisation enables a fine adjustment of dramatic effects”
