Anomaly Film Fest: Skinamarink

When: Fri., Nov. 4, 5:30 p.m. 2022

An experimental-horror, waking-nightmare that watches you as you watch it.

Have you ever woken up dazed in the middle of the night, and while squinting at a shadow you’re suddenly paralyzed with fear? Skinamarink is the cinematic bottling of that unknowing, creeping terror that something is there, in the room with you, watching you from the dark.

The premise — two children wake up in the middle of the night to find their father is missing, and all the windows and doors in their home have vanished — does not convey the extremely-experimental production. With few humans, murky subtitles, and images primarily of ceiling corners, flickering Fleischer cartoons, and dark doorways, Skinamarink demands your full attention and patience. But if you fully give yourself over to its hazy, static-filled disorientation, Skinamarink may absolutely terrify you.

Price: $12 general admission
