Skinner is a horror movie from 1993 that tells the story of a man named Dennis Skinner, played by Ted Raimi. Dennis Skinner is a loner who lives in a rundown apartment and works as a dangerous, lonely factory man who is obsessed with the female form. He spends his days working in a plant that makes medical skeletons while nursing a secret infatuation with his coworker Kerry Tate, played by Ricki Lake.

Kerry is the object of Skinner's desire, but she doesn't know it. He watches her every move, takes pictures of her with an old camera, and even steals her panties from the locker room. Skinner's obsession with Kerry leads him to kidnap her, and it is then that the movie takes a dark turn.

As Skinner keeps Kerry captive, he explains to her his twisted worldview, which involves the idea that people are nothing but skeletons inside, and the outside appearance is nothing but a façade. He tells Kerry that he is going to 'remove the skin' from her so that she can become a true self.

Skinner's past is full of mysteries, and the more Kerry learns about him, the more she realizes how dangerous and unstable he is. She makes several attempts at escape, but he always finds her, and the tension builds as the story progresses.

The movie also features David Warshofsky, who plays a detective investigating the disappearance of Kerry. Warshofsky's character is a sympathetic one who wants to help Kerry and her family, and he soon realizes that the key to finding her lies in Skinner's apartment.

Skinner is a disturbing horror movie that explores the psyche of a deranged man. Ted Raimi's portrayal of Skinner is chilling, and he brings a sense of realism to the character that is truly terrifying. The film is filled with grotesque imagery, such as the jars full of body parts that Skinner has collected over the years.

The movie also features a great soundtrack, with songs from The Ramones, The Damned, and Iggy Pop. The music adds to the overall bleak atmosphere of the film, and it helps to create a sense of dread that permeates throughout the runtime.

Overall, Skinner is a well-made horror movie that will leave you feeling disturbed and unnerved. The performances are strong, especially from Ted Raimi, who delivers an unforgettable performance as the titular character. If you're a fan of horror movies that delve into the twisted minds of deranged individuals, then Skinner is definitely worth checking out.
