A quick note from us: we didn't anticipate only recording one podcast in August but unfortunately that's how the cards fell! We hope you can forgive us, and we promise it won't be another month before you hear from us again!

It's episode 227...and you don't want to wake up, do you?
In Under the Skin (2013) Scarlett Johansson plays a mysterious, human skin-inhabiting alien who travels around Glasgow seducing unwitting men for nefarious reasons. But will her disguise lend her a deeper understanding of the human psyche, and will that ultimately change her view of humanity?
We tackle Jonathan Glazer's unique and disturbing horror vision, lure it into our black analysis void and suck out its inside meanings, and also find time to discuss all the usual suspects - stranger danger, GUM clinics, and all those hopeless derelicts north of the border.
All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive?
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: I have a place about 30 minutes away. Will you come with me there?
Join us next time as we continue our look at a pair of Modern Classics with J.A. Bayona's The Orphanage (2007).
