Dog Skin: A Short Horror Film

£5,030

38

A man running from his past finds a dog in the wild one night. He tries to approach it, but the dog disappears.

He finds something on the floor. It has teeth. Ears. It's the dog’s skin lying on the ground, discarded like a chrysalis. The dog is gone. In its place, there's a woman. The most beautiful woman he has ever seen.

The Story

Our short film is based on a fable called “The Dog Bride”, collected from the Santal Parganas and translated by Cecil Henry Bompas. In the fable, a man comes across a dog that during the night sheds its skin and metamorphoses into a beautiful woman. The man becomes obsessed and steals the skin from her, trapping her in human form and binding her to his wishes. It is a story about alienation, desire, and obsession in an otherworldly supernatural atmosphere.

What makes this potential film interesting?

We will have horror, dread, creepiness, violence, a bit more dread, and even some sexy moments. It's going to be a blast.

What's in it for you?

A Dog Skin Limited edition poster! A hi-quality A2 print of a poster drawn by artist Lambuja, known for his artwork for Cardi B and Rita Ora among others.

Or maybe you would like a... Dog Skin Tote Bag!

And much more. We will be adding more perks in the future, so keep your ears peeled.

Who the hell are you guys?
