Reviews:

“Where I expected a pretty cool low budget horror movie, instead I got a really well done, intelligent horror movie that managed to take a familiar idea and make it seem brand new again. And it’s all done with a low budget and a small cast.” HNN

“Mills could’ve just made this a gory, one-dimensional film about a guy losing his skin, but he really explores the character of Pete and makes him a tragic hero and plays to the best body horror elements in the script.” Anything Horror

Release:

Skinless received an initial theatrical premiere in Cleveland at midnight in the US by Phantom Pain Films on March 8, 2014.
