Plot – Spoilers:
A bunch of pesky little boys spend a summer roaming the vast swathes of nothingness they live around. Exploding frogs is one source of fun for them, but mostly they’re stupid and bored. There’s a widow they believe to be a vampire, and that’s the extent of their lives and world because each of their families offer them nothing else.
And then they go missing one by one and a closeted gay man is blamed for the murders.
The Reflecting Skin isn’t so much about child-murders as it is about a surreal summer of childhood.
