THE REFLECTING SKIN (2011, US)

Post by Wallace on Mon Dec 30, 2013 11:34 pm

Interesting film.

Set in '50s farmland Idaho.

 Pernicious 8 year old boy  ,Seth,whose weak father "runs" a rundown gas station (seemingly located  in the middle of wheatfields), blows up a giant frog in the face of  this eccentric  British newcomer woman. She complains to the mother and the mother forces him to go to her equally rundown house. Surprizingly, she doesnt berate him, saying that the frog guts all over her face didnt bother her at all - it was that the dress was ruined. 

Right away she starts playing on his mischeviousness ,saying that inflating frogs and blowing them up  via slingshot is pussyplay, that, as young girls, her and her friends used to light fireworks to cat's tails and such. She gifts the boy an ancient harpoon, explaining her folk were whalers long before they were farmers. The boy guesses her age as being 50.She takes this as a compliment, insisting  she is over 200 years old!

Meanwhile one of the boy's equally trouble-making friends has gone missing.His corpse  is found in the gas station well and suspicion is placed on Seth's  weepy father who likes reading comics about vampires and has been caught being "friendly" with young boys. The deputy reminds the  father of this and after the deputy leaves the wife abuses him. The father goes out to the pump swallows gas and blows himself up in front of the son. The son seems unconcerned.

More strange and terrible events unfold around the boy and he suspects the strange ,sunglasses-wearing woman.

The older brother (Viggo Mortensen) now returns  from war and falls in love with the strange  neighbour whom, by now, Seth clearly suspects as being a vampire......
