Directed by Kyle Edward Ball
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. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

I can see why it's controversial but I don't think it deserves so much of the hate it gets. This movie genuinely had me on edge and unnerved the entire time, it doesn't follow the typical horror movie script and has more in common with analog horror. The camera stays on scenes for such a long time that you keep waiting for something to jumpscare you but it (almost) never does. It's definitely the kind of movie you have to rewatch (and maybe read some reddit threads) to understand better. The kids did very well too.
It was very good, but I wouldn't call it scary. great movie though.
I was disappointed. Skinamarink had nothing new to offer, you can honestly see a million analog horrors like it on youtube - I wish they had expanded on the genre instead of using the same old tropes. Some good scares but the suspense was lost in long boring takes that led nowehere.
Revolutionary, but not for a typical popcorn horror audience
This movie was oddly captivating. Wouldn't really call it scary though.
