If you watch a short film called He Took His Skin Off for Me, you know you're in for something messy. But the mess in this film isn't just blood and gore — it's also emotional.

This short comes to us from director Ben Aston, who also made the wonderfully funny and sweet Russian Roulette. The tone in this film quite different, told from the point of view of a woman who asks her lover to make a huge change, but isn't quite prepared for the other shifts that come with it. It's an unsettling film, for reasons far beyond the image of a skinless man leaking all over the furniture.
