A CHILLING THRILLER FROM STEPHEN KING, FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
A world-famous prolific writer, many times adapted for film and television, Stephen King remains one of the most beloved fans of the genre. Faithful and successful adaptation of his eponymous novel, THE SKIN ON THE BONES is a fantastic dark thriller, with an original, effective and diabolical scenario, endorsed by the King himself since he makes a small appearance there in the role of a pharmacist. .
A monstrous race against time, SKIN ON BONE keeps the viewer spellbound until the end. The film depicts grotesque characters in grotesque situations, and surprises with its degree of cynicism. The feature film recounts with cruel irony the spiral of violence in which the characters are plunged, as well as the decline of the hero and the madness that gradually invades him.
One of the main successes of THE SKIN ON THE BONES are its special effects, in particular the make-up, which was stunningly realistic for the time. Physical representation of a man gnawed from within and unable to recognize his faults, the metamorphosis of the main character is both spectacular and terrifying. The film also benefits from the excellent music of DANIEL LICHT (Dexter, Hellraiser 4).
SKIN ON BONE is full of dark humor worthy of Tales from the Crypt, and for good reason: the adaptation is by TOM HOLLAND, to whom we owe several episodes of the mythical series. But the director is best known for Jeu d’Enfant (the 1st Chucky) or Vampire you said Vampire. In the casting, ROBERT JOHN BURKE (RoboCop 3) delivers a solid interpretation in the main role. He is assisted by JOE MANTEGNA (Criminal Minds) and MICHAEL CONSTANTINE (The Con man) in the role of the old gypsy.
New on DVD and Blu-Ray in France, SKIN ON THE BONE will be available from November 17 in a Blu-Ray + DVD combo and should delight fans of the genre as well as those of the cult writer!
