[News] SKINAMARINK Breaks 1 Million at the Box Office
IFC Midnight and Shudder‘s viral sensation SKINAMARINK crosses $1 million at the North American box office 6 days into release on partial screens – earning the film an impressive 67X its production budget of 15K.

The debut feature from director Kyle Edward Ball will expand into over 800 theaters this weekend dictated by demand and outpacing all industry estimates. You can purchase tickets here.

SKINAMARINK will stream exclusively on Shudder on February 2, 2023. The film had its premiere at Fantasia Fest (which we reviewed here), and has since taken social media by storm creating an unprecedented viral sensation for an independently produced horror film.

In SKINAMARINK, 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 situation.

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.

The film stars Lucas Paul, Dali Rose Tetreault, Ross Paul and Jaime Hill and is executive produced by Edmon Rotea, Ava Karvonen, Bonnie Lewis, Alan Lewis, Josh Doke and Jonathan Barkan.
