PERFECT SKIN

Perfect Skin  

Synopsis

Combining the style of Cell with the sizzling tension and startling turns of The Skin I Live In, and featuring music from Liam Howlett of The Prodigy, Perfect Skin is a bold, confrontational, beautiful, and ultimately empowering film that dives deep into the culture of tattooing and body modification – a complex section of society that is growing and evolving as we speak.

Katia (Natalia Kostrzewa, The Cured), a young Polish woman adrift in London, meets Bob (Richard Brake, Game of Thrones), an American tattoo artist who is devoted to his craft. Katia is drawn to his mysterious aura and the taboo culture of body modification, but Bob has a dark, secret desire to leave his mark on the world. Little does Katia know that her fascination with him will put her life in danger.

“Perfect Skin is a truly chilling watch and a promising debut from Chicken” – ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS

“Perfect Skin is an engaging and horrifying film that will draw you in and refuse to let you go” – ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS

“The set-up prepares you for a torture porn extravaganza in the same ilk as Hostel but that’s not what Perfect Skin delivers at all. It’s actually much more of a character study… Thankfully the film doesn’t go down the route of sexual violence, which is so easily could have done, instead opting to explore the shifting dynamic between Bob and Katia” – ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS

“It has excellent work from the quietly creepy Richard Brake” – KIM NEWMAN

"Anyone who has seen Rob Zombie’s 31 will know that the very best thing about it was actor Richard Brake...Brake’s intense, haunted eyes, gaunt, cavernous cheeks and drawn, craggy skin were an integral part of his authenticity as a performer...His weathered, lived-in skin also plays a part in Kevin Chicken’s feature debut Perfect Skin" - SCI FI NOW
