You don’t want to wake up, do you?

An alien seductress preys upon hitchhikers in Scotland.

This trailer for the upcoming Scarlett Johansson film Under the Skin from Sexy Beast director Jonathan Glazer really illustrated something for me: the importance of having directors and producers with artistic vision. Because let’s face it, folks: this is basically the same plot as Species. An alien disguised as a woman preys on hapless guys who think she’s totally hot. The fact that this two-minute trailer is more artfully crafted than the entirety of Species and its sequels says something. Anyway, I think this looks terrifying, and for once I don’t find myself attracted to Scarlett Johansson – that’s no small feat!
