UNDER THE SKIN is a sci-fi drama about an alien seductress who arrives in Glasgow where she sets out to prey on drifters and single men.

Sex

There is one sex scene, which shows a man on top of a woman, his bare buttocks visible and shown from various angles. Penetration is implied by the sight of the man fumbling as he looks down towards his crotch, and later the woman looks between her legs implying that he has reached an orgasm. The scene contains no strong detail.

Nudity

There are frequent scenes of nudity, including full frontal male and female nudity, some of which occur in a sexual or seduction context. There is brief and shadowy sight of erect penises.

The film also contains two uses of strong language ('f**k'), some moderate horror as humans are shown to mutate and as an alien is set on fire, scenes of attempted sexual assault, and moderate violence.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
