The acting is stunning and shocking on just how perfect it is. You get a brutal story of murder and sexual torture. Its deep and gets under your skin and makes you want to take a bath.
All three films are a wonderful example of descriptive and powerful incidents unfolding as if the reality is happening in front of you. At the start of the first story it starts out strong and never lets up with suspense and terror reality that comes together as if in harmony.
Awesome vivid film making of a high quality nature. Stunning and Grade A +++ direction and written script. Flawless in the darker nature reality of the hidden world of violence and the macabre.

Scream For Me is my personal favorite. Chris accomplishes something more horrifying with a low budget and in 20 minutes that mainstream horror has failed to do in decades - truly terrify his audience.
All of these films have won multiple awards from best film to best actor to best score.
I highly recommend them. These are three must have films for any true fan of horror.
However, once in a while, I'll see one of these no-budget productions and think, "now why the hell aren't THESE people working in Hollywood?"
Such is the case with filmmaker Christoper Alan Broadstone, and his leading man Tony Simmons. MY SKIN! takes place in one room, at one desk. At that desk sits death itself (Simmons), and on the floor behind him is the dead body of a woman, her hands and feet bound. Her head all bloodied, covered in a plastic bag. There's been a murder, and the grim reaper has come for her soul. But he's got a treat for the guy who committed the crime, and he makes a little phone call to the killer before wrapping up his business at the scene of the crime.
Think an episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, as directed by David Lynch, shot and edited by Sam Raimi, and that's kinda what the experience of watching MY SKIN! is like. The atmosphere is maddening, the lighting and sound crisp yet nightmarish, and the acting is 100% hide-under-the-covers scary. Tony Simmons is one of the best actors I've ever seen grace and independent production, he reeks of talent and energy. His performance matches the pro-level editing and camera work beat for beat, making the whole piece effective and enjoyable. I'm not nit-picky, but even so I would be hard pressed to find anything resembling a flaw in this production.
Also on this disc is a 22-minute short entitled SCREAM FOR ME, which again takes place in a single room, but is stylistically different from MY SKIN! and decidedly more brutal and disturbing. Without going into detail (buy the DVD ya cheap bastards!), I'll say that when I watched it, I actually felt relieved when the poor girl was murdered, and wishing the same fate for the unfortunately still-conscious guy lying beside her on the floor. My my my, is this one rough going, largely due to Tony Simmons' once again amazing performance. You can't even tell it's the same guy from MY SKIN!, a testament to the man's abilities. He and Broadstone seem all too ready to dive into really REALLY dark territory.
When my friends think they're cool with all the latest 2 disc special editions and season whatever of the hit TV show of the moment, I invite them to sit down and spend a little time in the world of independent cinema, where anything can happen to anyone at anytime. Where, in the case of Christopher Alan Broadstone's work, psycho killers are the least of your worries.
The three short films, all featuring performances by Tony Simmons that eclipse that of mainstream actors, are fascinating pieces of filmmaking, but what really makes this DVD worth it is the experience of the whole package. Each film is accompanied by at least 3 commentary tracks, as well as a boat load of behind the scenes interviews, set tours and still photography. The amount of information contained here is indispensable to any aspiring artist. Broadstone goes into depth about all manner of production; his artistic intentions, his technical limitations, his work with actors, his budget, his equipment -- everything.
Even if you have no intention of working as dark a seam as these films do, there will be plenty of insights to transcend the horror genre. Anyone who takes the art of the genre seriously is going to find more than enough to sate their hunger here.
