Plot Plastic surgeon Robert Ledgard (Banderas) has perfected a form of artificial skin. Vera (Anaya), an experimental test subject, is a prisoner in his isolated mansion. When a violent criminal forces his way in, Ledgard and Vera are forced to remember the tragedies and crimes which brought them together.
Verdict Not for everyone — there will be heated debate about at least one plot turn — but high-level filmmaking. The year’s classiest horror movie.
