Primal Screen

Primal Screen

Directed by Rodney Ascher

Why are we simultaneously attracted to and repelled by the things that scare us the most? In this special presentation, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE) explores the pop culture that left dark impressions on us as children. Starting from the immortal ventriloquist dummy of MAGIC, Ascher asks real people to look back at pop-culture artifacts that traumatized them in their youth and describe the effect they had on their lives. A singular hybrid of documentary and horror, stare into the Primal Screen.

In this Shudder Original, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher explores the pop culture that left dark impressions on us as children.

Cast: Gregory Burkart, Daniel Ferranti, Gary Holland

Good n creepy. Too short, plus no "Magic" movie for us to watch after??? At least not on the Canadian stream.
