Reminiscent of 'Under The Skin' (2014).

You know, the one with Scarlett Johansson weirdly hanging around in Glasgow as an extra-terrestrial stalker.

Go check it!


I also heavily wanted Glazer to shoot this movie.

Man is much better than Under the Skin.

The Under the Skin film also doesn't understand that the book is set in the Highlands not in bloody Glasgow. A very stupid change when you think of CCTV, witnessses etc.

It's not "Sci-Fi", it's SF!

I liked both, but I agree, this was better. He also becomes rich and powerful and is a more interesting character with a higher developed purpose (even if it's just to get back home or to his own time), where Scarlett Johansson is really just one of many data collectors/harvesters./


That thought occurred to me at parts as well.


I like both films for different reasons.

There's something interesting about seeing Scarlet Johansson in such an incongruous setting.

agree, Under The Skin was slightly better though
