This movie would make an amazing double feature with ‘Parents’. ‘The Reflecting Skin’ shares the same basic plot as ‘Parents’; the disturbing imagination of a child who suspects the adults around him are evil. This movie, like ‘Parents’ is also VERY underrated. ‘The Reflecting Skin’ tells the story of ‘Seth’ and the creepy Midwestern town he lives in. He comes from a dysfunctional home (his father is not only a drunk but has been labeled the town pedophile due to a misunderstanding that took place many years ago and his mother is overly religious and physically abusive). His brother (Played by Viggo Mortensen in one of his earliest roles), has come back from WW2 with a disease that’s making him weaker and weaker. He’s absolutely convinced that the British woman who lives next door to him is a vampire (she eventually becomes his older brothers girlfriend). And all of his friends are being killed off by a group a serial killers that pray on the young boys in the neighborhood (this aspect of the movie is actually very open to interpretation in that the serial killers might be a split personality of ‘Seth’ himself, who in reality may be the one killing his friends). This movie has its share of funny scenes, but at the end of the day its a serious film. Like some of the other movies on my Halloween movie lists, this isn’t so much a horror movie as it is a psychological thriller/drama. The soundtrack to this movie is great, btw.
