Review: We saw Skinamarink so you don’t have to–but you still might want to

The magic of this frustration is overwhelming in concept: You are stuck in the house with these kids. Whether you are stuck in a dream, their dream, your dream, or some paranormal realm, you are stuck.

SMILE!! You did well at the box office this weekend

The marketing for the movie was brilliant, with smiling people gracing baseball games and public locations for the past two weeks. Nice move!

But what few are talking about with this is the ‘smile’ concept. It is based on a short horror film.. but it also seems to borrow a lot of the concept of IT FOLLOWS. In that movie, what followed was a sexually transmitted disease and bad reputation. In this film, it is mental illness. We cloud it and hide it with a smile.

I am not sure if the film makers went for a deeper meaning than what we got, but it sure felt like something much more meaningful was hiding under the surface.

Must be the season of ‘WITCH’

Marc Zammit and Craif Hindle’s new WITCH movie poster and trailer..

“Set in Dawnbrook, England in 1575, William must prove the innocence of his wife Twyla, who stands accused of being a witch.
William must hunt down the real witch if Twyla is to be spared, but unearthly events make them both look doomed.”
