It’s been called “sleaze-oozing” (Flick Attack), “gut-churning” (The Bedlam Files), and “incredibly tasteless” (Cult Reviews). It featured the most intensely graphic scenes yet by KNB EFX Group (“The Walking Dead”). Uncut, it remains perhaps the most disturbing – and rarely seen – shocker of the ‘90s.
And today we have word that director Ivan Nagy’s 1993 independent slasher film Skinner starring Ted Raimi and Traci Lords will be released on Blu-ray via Severin Films in December. Scanned in 4K from the uncut original camera negative and including the complete hooker-flaying sequence, Severin is currently taking pre-orders, which include an exclusive slipcover (see below), limited to 2,000.
Ricki Lake, Richard Schiff, and David Warshofsky co-star in the film, which Nagy (Captain America II: Death Too Soon) directs from a screenplay written by Paul Hart-Wilden. Pre-order your copy right HERE.
Ted Raimi delivers an unnerving performance as psycho drifter Dennis Skinner, who wears flesh-suits he slices from doomed prostitutes, falls for a lonely young housewife, and is himself hunted by a horribly scarred survivor (an equally unhinged performance by Traci Lords).
