    This movie isn’t for everyone, but I found it to be the perfect visual representation for what it’s like to have a nightmare as a child. You are alone. Helpless. And it feels like you’ll never leave. It’s incredible.

    the part where we see kaylee’s face and she has no facial features is terrifying to me because when i was a child i had reoccurring nightmares about people with no faces. they started when i was about 4 and i ‘woke up’ to see a woman grasping the stroller beside my bed and staring at me, but her face was just blank. after that i got reoccurring nightmares where i was in a surreal world where everything was just slightly off, and would come across family members and strangers, all missing faces. it always felt like i was somewhere i was not supposed to be, seeing something i was not supposed to see. it was terrifying, and that scene brought that childhood fear rushing back.

      I had similar dreams, but it was always my face that came off. I used to think it was from a movie or show I watched, but it was just a nightmare I came up with in my 5 yr old brain.

      So kaylee died then, it never explains it

    • Perla grecco says:

      Oh god same thing here, i paused the video because it bringed me back to those nightmares too. I used to dream constantly of being trapped in a elevator with a man with no face, and he used to appear in other dreams too, and every time he did everyone would lose their faces, it’s been a while since i remembered those dreams

      Christ, that sounds terrifying

    I personally think that this is about the experience of children in an abusive home. I grew up in an abusive home and watching this video made me cry it reminded me of my upbringing. You can’t leave the doors and windows are gone no where to run and nowhere to hide. The mother is faceless barely recognisable an empty husk, when Kayleigh tries to scream she is punished she can no longer speak, when the boy is repeatedly beaten and killed in that loop it never stops and it’s always the same. When the voice tells the boy to stab his own eye it’s sorta like how after I escaped my living situation I was so used to being beaten that I thought I deserved to be hurt leading me to mutilate my body even though I didn’t want to I needed to when the phone turns into a toy phone it shows how it’s impossible to get help, your trauma plays in your memory on loop just like the tv and the only closure you can find is through your toys in the imaginary world

      I couldn’t really put to words why this movie felt so visceral and personal to me and this might be it

    • Dade! says:

      @impy my initial reaction was to be upset but in some very real ways those are the only options when it comes to childhood domestic abuse so as another surviver: lol. lmao, even

      Cope, seethe and/or mald 😭😭😭😭😭

    • AROAH Entertainment says:

      This is exactly the interpretation I came up with. I wasn’t physically abused much, but so much of the film puts me in mind of being a helpless child not knowing that what was happening to me was wrong, feeling like there was no real means of getting away.

      I particularly appreciate that the kids seek escapism as a safe haven.

  5. Diochu says:

    the fact that you don’t see the most disturbing things that happen, that you can only hear them or be aware of them is so terrifying.

      Diochu u might enjoy Pontypool

      @Konnor “Show don’t tell” is usually said in reference to overused or unnecessary exposition in media, it’s not a blanket term for fucking everything. Especially not when it comes to horror or violence. You’re just mindlessly repeating shit you heard someone else say.

    • Freedfg says:

      With the understanding that the film is a child’s nightmare from their perspective. It also makes sense, since a young child of 4 has probably no knowledge of what gore looks like or even is since they’ve most likely never seen it in the media they consume.

    • Konnor says:

      Especially when everything in this movie is so damn muffled and quiet

    • Konnor says:


      Show don’t tell

    Now I want a looping horror story where the people in the loop are able to age, even if slowly, and gradually become accustomed to the horror aspects and start living their lives normally and just rolling with the horror moments between loops. Starts out with a full family, ends up with whatever children grown up, maybe the parents too old to do much.

    This movie reminded me so much of the worst nightmare I ever had, back when I was 8 years old, the fear was so palpable that 20 years later, I remember it like it was yesterday.

    It started with me sitting on my childhood bed, wondering where my brother was, only to see my dad running into the room, terrified. He begged me to close my eyes and to not open it, no matter what, he looked back at the door, scared, and proceeded cover his eyes with his hands and to lay face down on a bed next to mine. Scared out of my mind, I copied him.

    And just as I had done that, I knew it was there, I don’t know what it was, or what it wanted, but I KNEW it was there. It just…lingered, and slowly made its way into the room. It never made a sound, it never spoke, I didn’t even hear footsteps, it was like a shadow making its way in.

    And it stayed there, I could feel it looking at us, just waiting, waiting for me to make a sound, waiting for me to give into my curiosity and just take a peek. It only needed a peek. It was almost like, looking at it would give it permission to do what it wanted, somehow I knew that. I could FEEL it looking at me, inches from me, waiting.

    It stayed there, for what it felt like an eternity, till I heard my dad screaming. I didn’t know if he had looked at it, if it forced him, or if it was the creature playing tricks on me, but the scream was so real. I kept my eyes closed, wondering if I should just open them and get this over with, just end it already, and just as I did that, I woke up.

    I sat in bed, telling myself it wasn’t real, trying to calm myself down. I had that nightmare as a 8 yo kid, and I still remember so clearly.

      @The True Mr. Pink look up the age of consent in Europe, Asia and Africa. Nuff said.

      @Maps rights are valid   Don’t worry, fellas. It’s just a troll. They’re only trying to get a rise. Don’t respond to them after me.

      Congratulations, you want a cookie and clapping for your bravery?

      My childhood nightmares seem a bit basic compared compared yours haha. I had two though that have stuck with me though.

      Once I was in school in the woods for some reason and there had been reports of a serial killer on the loose who wore a ski mask and had a smile on his face. Any way, everyone who I was in school with left and I was left alone in the schools entrance and I looked behind me outside and could see the guy waving at me before he quickly walked up to me and thats when I woke up.

      The second one is similar, but I was outside, naked for some reason with nothing on but a towel, I needed to go back in the house to get dressed obviously but I couldn’t because there was a shadow figure staring at me through the door. When I woke up after that all I could hear was strange noises downstairs, which terrified me as a child.

      Doesn’t seem that bad really but just putting it out there

    Watching Wendigoon succumb to a Magic Spoon addiction is something I haven’t decided if it’s hilarious or concerning.

  9. Roxy Hart says:

    I couldn’t watch the movie itself – it triggers my anxiety something real bad. This explanation does, too, but to a much much lesser extent, so I’m grateful cause I’m so damn curious about it. Seems absolutely fantastic! It’s just something about them being children that makes it unwatchable for my soul lol

    I didn’t grow up in an abusive home, just a home with an alcoholic father and a mother trying her best. The metaphors of feeling like you can’t call out for help or even be able to escape (ie the toy phone and the absence of windows and doors) really hit home for me. My father never raised a hand to us, while sober or drunk, but he was definitely scary when he was drunk. We were lucky when he just being annoying tbh. I had thoughts of running away or calling out for help, but felt like I couldn’t.

    A lot of viewers here are talking about their experiences with child abuse and how Skinamarink really shows what it is like to live in an abusive household. To those viewers, I hope you are doing better now. I hope you are safe and are thriving and giving your inner child the love and safety that you rarely felt growing up.
