‘Skinamarink’ Just Passed $1 Million at the Box Office; Coming to Shudder Next Month!

After debuting in theaters this past weekend with over $800,000 across the four-day holiday, we’ve learned that Kyle Edward Ball‘s experimental found footage movie Skinamarink (read Meagan’s review) has now passed ONE MILLION DOLLARS at the North American box office.

The film has now earned an incredible 67X its production budget of 15K(!), and that’s with a limited release on very few screens in just 692 theaters across the United States.

The debut feature from director Kyle Edward Ball will expand into over 800 theaters this weekend, dictated by demand as the film continues to outpace all industry estimates.

Skinamarink will then stream exclusively on Shudder February 2, 2023!

If you’d rather see it in theaters, you can get your tickets now.

This is another massive win for indie horror, following in the wake of Damien Leone’s slasher Terrifier 2 making $12.8 million at the US box office this past Halloween season.

Meagan wrote in her review of Skinamarink, “While it delivers on its singular vision, its experimental nature and reliance on technique and the power of suggestion will likely polarize.”

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.”

Lucas Paul, Dali Rose Tetreault, Ross Paul and Jaime Hill star.
