Ivan Nagy’s 90s horror gem Skinner is getting a debut Blu-ray release in the UK on 26th August 2019.
Thought to be a lost film, Skinner has been given a 4K restoration so genre fans can enjoy it in all its sinful, sleazy and violent glory.
Dennis Skinner seems like a normal enough guy but he has a very abnormal hobby. At night, he creeps through the back streets looking for potential victims, and when he finds one, carefully removes their skin with an elaborate collection of knives.
Heidi, one of Dennis’ victims, is on his trail, waiting for a chance to get her revenge, but in the meantime Dennis has developed a crush on Kerry and wants to find a way to show her he really cares.
The film stars Ted Raimi (Spider-Man), Traci Lords (Blade), David Warshofsky (There Will Be Blood), Richard Schiff (Se7en) and Ricki Lake (Hairspray). It is directed by Ivan Nagy (The Hitchhiker) and written by Paul Hart Wilden (Alone).
