"Two shot-on-video movies that are plagued by EVERYTHING that makes watching a film an excruciating experience. Bad scripts, wooden acting, ludicrous pacing and turgid editing.
UNDER THE SKIN is about... well, I not really sure. Credits list three directors and this one seems to be three thirty minute student films butted together. Imagine The Terminator meets Alien Autopsy meets whatever. ENDANGERED SPECIES is just as incoherent, although it seems to be cribbing more from Rosemary's Baby and Escape from New York. It does contain the best line in either movie, though, delivered by a dark-glasses clad alien - "As the meltdown chamber makes your flesh drool."
About the only reason to watch these is for the opportunity to reflect on what's most important to a movie. It has to be the script. These movies are so confused and confusing that it's almost impossible to concentrate on them for the 100-minutes they both demand. The acting may be amateurish, but that could have been disguised a bit by an intriguing story. These two are both big reasons to loathe the do-it-yourself movement.
