Just when you think you've seen it all, someone shows you a film where one of the characters has a bumhole for a mouth and vice versa. Skins (Pieles in the original Spanish) - may have landed in cinemas three years ago, but people are just discovering it - to their horror - on Netflix.
The Spanish film centres around a series of characters who are disfigured in some way, and subsequently shunned from society.
The synopsis for the movie reads: "Deformed, disfigured characters must find a way to deal with society shunning their differences."
The particularly unfortunate Samantha (Ana Polvorosa) suffers from an inverted digestive system where her mouth and anus have been switched around.
But in a bid to be accepted by society, she bravely leaves the safety of the cabin she shares with her father and goes out into the world - with obvious and pretty heartbreaking consequences.
At one point she is cruelly laughed at by a man in a cafe due to her condition.
Other characters include a beautiful woman, Laura (played by Macarena Gómez), who has no eyes and becomes a prostitute, a man, Guille (Jon Kortajarena), who has suffered burns to his body, and another woman, Ana (Candela Peña), who has a large tumour on her face.
There is also Cristian (Eloi Costa), who dreams of having no legs, so he can become a mermaid, while Vanesa (Ana María Ayala) hates her job dressing up as a popular kids' TV figure.
The obvious message of the film is one of acceptance, and its graphic approach has certainly left its mark on viewers.
Writing on Twitter, one person said: "Have y'all watched Skins on Netflix? Iwww."
Another warned: "You do...DO NOT watch Skins on Netflix."
"Skins on Netflix is da weirdest s*** I've ever watched," a third chimed in.
While yet another startled user wrote: "Just watched Skins on Netflix and now I wanna throw up such a weird movie idk how I made it to the end."
