When Can You Stream Viral Horror Movie ‘Skinamarink’? Plus: Other Horror Hits to Stream Now

David Satin

Skinamarink” has become an internet sensation. The film, with its incredibly modest $15,000 budget, debuted at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival in Canada. From there it spread to other festivals, and a pirated copy landed on the internet which caused the film’s popularity to explode.

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 them.
