"The creature that Scarlett plays in Under The Skin exists to be objectified," says director Jonathan Glazer. "And what she does in the course of the film, in her own discovery, is she reclaims that — she de-eroticizes her own image, actually. It seems to me to be somehow in line with Scarlett’s life as an actress, and in the way she’s objectified” he added. (…) Under the Skin could scarcely have picked a better-equipped actress than Johansson to play a temptress with the sort of sexual charisma that can lure men to their doom. (…) That’s a conflict that Johansson has had to navigate for most of her adult career. The notion that her character in Under the Skin is experiencing “a journey from ‘it’ to ‘she,’” in Glazer’s words, could also apply to Marvel’s treatment of Johansson as its sole superheroine Black Widow. First introduced as no more than a sexual fetish object in Iron Man 2, Black Widow was eventually redeemed by the interest Joss Whedon paid her in The Avengers, where she had more screen time than most of her fellow superheroes and was granted a complicated interior life (and a backstory full of dangerous deal-breakers) that the first film could only hint at.

The gender dynamics of horror typically play out with killers being male and their victims being female. Under The Skin turns the tables on this traditional setup, and with it creates a reverse of contemporary rape culture where violence against women is so common that women are casually warned to be ever alert for those who might harm them. In rape culture, the blame for what might befall women is thereby put on their shoulders in place of their potential rapist. By and large men don’t worry about their safety in the same way when walking home late at night. But in the world of Under The Skin, they absolutely should.
