While it didn't quite light up the critics when it premiered last month at the Cannes Film Festival, Pedro Almodóvar’s "The Skin I Live In" is still one that left people talking long after the lights came back up on the Croisette. Starring Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya and Marisa Paredes and based on Thierry Jonquet‘s novel “Mygale,” the film is a revenge tale that tells the story of a plastic surgeon (Banderas) on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter and in a blend of horror, thriller and melodrama which is a nice change of pace for Almodóvar.

A new French teaser trailer has dropped for the film, and yes, it still looks every bit as bizarre and creepy as you might think. Powered by a score that seems more appropriate for a David Lynch film (ringing electric guitars, pulsing electronic beats) it offers up a montage of compelling, scary and twisted images from the movie. Our man in Cannes called the film an uneven but still intriguing and "unsettling dance of thanatos and eros, death and sex" that will definitely surprise longtime fans of the director.

Sony Pictures Classics will release the film in November. Check out the teaser below. [via Twitch]
