Utterly unlikeable characters (with Mia Wasikowska managing the previously impossible, namely looking deeply unattractive), dialogue more rotten than an infected Prince Albert; "I want you to wear my skin...", and a run time, at 82 minutes, aUtterly unlikeable characters (with Mia Wasikowska managing the previously impossible, namely looking deeply unattractive), dialogue more rotten than an infected Prince Albert; "I want you to wear my skin...", and a run time, at 82 minutes, a good 60 minutes longer than necessary! Piercing tried to be far too clever & stylish than it actually was; with silly flashbacks, even sillier "flesh crawling" insects and an ending I saw coming a mile away, so was bored by way before it eventually happened. I gave it half a star for Christopher Abbott's performance in the scenes in the hotel room before Wasikowska's entrance. Some films run for 2 or 3 hours yet fly by in a gripping, engaging speedway ride. Piercing just grated along like a ship on rocks, for what seemed like 2 hours. It was Tuesday night 'ready meal for one' dressed up as Saturday night 'steak dinner for two'! I really wanted it to be more than gross, gloopy, gimp gore. It wasn't! Expand
