Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Under the Skin is a creepy, atmospheric thriller about a woman who reaps men from the streets of Glasgow, ostensibly for sex, but actually to kill and feed on. It's disturbing, no question, even though there's little dialog and not a lot of gore. There's only one swear word, but plenty of nudity, including male full-frontal, and a few scenes showing couples engaged in sex, though we don't see it in explicit detail.
Lots of full-frontal nudity, including men's genitalia and a hint of a woman's pubic region. The central female character's breasts and backside are visible, too. In one scene, a man and a woman start to have sex, and his naked backside is visible as they get into a sexual position.
The plot centers on a woman who picks up men on the street for what seems like sex, but turns into something more nefarious. Little to no gore, but the imagery is disturbing, especially when naked men are shown being absorbed by a strange body of water. The soundtrack and sound effects pile on, enveloping most scenes in a very charged, tense feeling. A woman is shown being chased in the woods by a would-be rapist. He slaps her and manhandles and tries to rip her clothes off.
One instance of the word "s--t."
The movie is set in a grim world of anonymous sex and danger.
