“In Their Skin” is a scary movie for wimps. There’s not much blood, there aren’t many jump scares, and there’s nothing evil or sinister — only odd people doing odd things.

It’s an interesting story of a grieving family who escapes the city to find peace. During their weekend in the woods, they’re confronted by some quirky neighbors seeking friendship. Soon, the neighbors begin stealing the family’s personas by mimicking their mannerisms and adopting their names. Selma Blair plays a lead role in the film (you might know her as the bratty Vivian Kensington from “Legally Blonde”), only this time she’s the character you root for.

The movie feels pretty short, and the climax appears as quickly as it dissolves. The story ties up neatly, but it’s rather predictable and easily forgettable. If you’re looking for something safe, “In Their Skin” works, but if you’re looking for something mind-blowing, continue searching.

Side Note: Blair’s bare chest steals the spotlight for a hot minute, so you may want to consider saving the movie for at least the third date (to avoid awkward situations).
