Skin Trade is a 2014 action thriller film directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham, and starring Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White, and Ron Perlman. Lundgren wrote the film; along with Gabriel Dowrick and Steven Elder, while John Hyams performed uncredited script revisions. The film centers around New Jersey police detective Nick Cassidy, as he travels to Asia intent on killing the man responsible for murdering his wife and daughter, mobster Viktor Dragovic. He is also set on destroying Dragovic's human trafficking network.

Development started in 2007, after Lundgren read news about a group of girls being smuggled into the United States from Mexico. The girls were left in a vehicle along the border; trapped inside, they all succumbed to heat stroke and suffocation. Produced on a $9 million budget, the film was shot over 50 days in Canada and Thailand. It was the first film to be shot in English by an organization based in Asia (outside of Hong Kong) for an international theatrical release.

The film premiered at the American Film Market on November 7, 2014. A limited theatrical release followed, starting on April 9, 2015 in the United Arab Emirates, and succeeded by Thailand (on April 23); Malaysia (on April 30); and the United States (on May 8). The film received mostly negative reviews; particular criticism was aimed at Jaa's English, and at the film's scant focus on human trafficking. Skin Trade grossed $384 thousand at the worldwide box office. It was released through Video-on-Demand on April 23, 2015, followed by a Blu-ray and DVD release on August 25 later that year.


A Cambodian girl leaves her village for Bangkok. Upon arrival, she is kidnapped, drugged, and sold in the skin trade.

In 1821, Don Diego De La Vega (Anthony Hopkins) fights against the Spanish in the Mexican War of Independence as Zorro, a mysterious swordsman who defends the Mexican peasants and commoners of Las Californias. Don Rafael Montero (Stuart Wilson), the governor of the region, learns of De La Vega's alter ego, and attempts to arrest him. De La Vega's wife is killed during the scuffle. Montero imprisons De La Vega and takes his infant daughter, Eléna, as his own. Twenty years later Montero returns to California as a civilian, alongside Eléna (Catherine Zeta Jones), who has grown into a beautiful woman. Montero's reappearance coincides with De La Vega's escape from prison. He encounters a thief, Alejandro Murrieta (Antonio Banderas), who, as a child, once did Zorro a favor. De La Vega decides that fate has brought them together, and agrees to make Alejandro his protégé, grooming him to be the new Zorro. Murrieta agrees to undergo De La Vega's training regimen in order to be able to take revenge on Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher), Montero's right-hand man, who was responsible for killing Murrieta's brother, Joaquin.

Two mentally ill women who are clearly suffering from not otherwise specified delusional disorders, a mother and a (grown) daughter, live together in a secluded mansion. They are in a relationship and both are recognised for their beauty. They spend their days playing perverse BDSM-related incestuous games in memory of their sadistic patriarch who, when he was still alive, raped his daughter when she was eleven, murdered several servants, and is now a mummified corpse with which the daughter is shown having sex. They occasionally kill their servants and bury their bodies in the garden.
