Pedro Almodóvar returns to arthouses this year with "The Skin I Live In" and for those who think they know what to expect from the director whose oeuvre includes films like "Bad Education," "Volver" and "All About My Mother" his latest may be a bit of a shock.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya and Marisa Paredes and based on Thierry Jonquet‘s novel “Mygale,” the film -- a blend of horror, thriller and melodrama -- is a revenge tale that tells the story of a plastic surgeon (Banderas) on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter. "The Skin I Live In" premiered earlier this year at Cannes where it received mixed reviews, but was undoubtedly a major topic of conversation. This latest, full-length Spanish language trailer for the film is an extension of the teaser that hit last month, giving us a beat driven, surreal, slightly NSFW peek at the film that, if anything, highlights that it'll be gorgeous to look at (the closing shot of the woman's reflection framed in a dress in the shop window? Sublime).

"The Skin I Live In" will make its North American premiere at TIFF before hitting theaters on October 14th. Check it out below. [STYD]
