In this house…we celebrate the arrival of Skinamarink on Blu-ray and DVD this June from RLJE Entertainment. The indie horror film by Kyle Edward Ball has developed a unique dialogue online between fans of the genre. It’s been interesting to see the various takes on the style, story and liminal qualities of the film. Further examination is sure to take place on June 20th.
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. To cope with the strange situation, the two bring pillows & blankets to the living room and settle into a quiet slumber party. They play well worn videotapes of cartoons to fill the silence of the house and distract from the frightening and inexplicable situation. All the while in the hopes that eventually some grown-ups will come to rescue them. However, after a while it becomes clear that something is watching over them.
