"Under the Skin" movie quotes tell the strange tale of an alien who takes over the body of an attractive female and seduces men in order to harvest their organs. The science-fiction film was directed by Jonathan Glazer, who adapted the screenplay with Walter Campbell from a 2000 novel of the same name by Michel Faber. "Under the Skin" first premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival before an April 4, 2014, United States theatrical opening.

In "Under the Skin," Laura (Scarlett Johannson) is a beautiful brunette in Scotland whose body has been taken over by an alien. Acting as Laura, the alien preys on lonely male hitchhikers and seduces them. She picks up these men and brings them back to her home to presumably have sex but instead preserves them in a liquid and harvests their organs instead.

Despite being watched by another alien, who has taken over the body of a male motorcyclist, somewhere along the way the alien becomes self-aware of her human form leading to quite the identity crisis. The alien, still in Laura's form, flees to the woods where she encounters two men, both who will change her life in different ways for good.

"Under the Skin," which was filmed using hidden cameras, joins theaters already buzzing about other movies such as "Dom Hemingway," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Sabotage," "Noah," "Blood Ties," the "Veronica Mars" movie, "Need for Speed," "Mr. Peabody and Sherman," "300: Rise of an Empire," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Cheap Thrills," "Monuments Men," "Winter's Tale," "RoboCop (2014), "About Last Night," "Vampire Academy," "The Lego Movie," "Gimme Shelter," "I, Frankenstein," "Ride Along," and "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit."
