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 and 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, in the hopes that some grown-ups will come to rescue them.

However, it soon becomes clear that something is watching over them...


“Ingeniously evoking a child’s response to the inexplicable, SKINAMARINK sways on the border between dreaming and wakefulness, a movie as difficult to penetrate as it is to forget.” Jeannette Catsoulis. A New York Times Critic's Pick!

“It’s maybe the only movie experience I’ve ever had that fully captured a unique feeling of terror that I think a lot of people in my age bracket felt as kids online, reading scary stories or watching apparently ‘cursed’ videos on the Internet in the middle of the night. After the whole world has gone to sleep, the liminality of reality can be an utterly terrifying experience.” Jane Schoenbrun, WE'RE ALL GOING TO THE WORLD'S FAIR
