I Saw the TV Glow

Look a little closer.

Teenager Owen is just trying to make it through life in the suburbs when his classmate introduces him to a mysterious late-night TV show — a vision of a supernatural world beneath their own. In the pale glow of the television, Owen’s view of reality begins to crack. With Justice Smith, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Fred Durst, Danielle Deadwyler.

“‘Glow’ blends the real and the surreal in a neon-drenched nightmare that leaves a trail of thematic breadcrumbs for its audience.” (USA Today)

“‘I Saw the TV Glow’ is about to become Gen-Z’s favorite cult movie… Filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun’s addition to the midnight-movie canon starts with a shared love of a TV show — and then goes down the fandom rabbit hole” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“Director Jane Schoenbrun blurs the lines between reality and fantasy with an intoxicating, Lynchian flair.” (Washington Post)

“With all this talk of universal emotions and inherent hope, it is easy to lose track of the fact that I Saw the TV Glow is an unnerving and disarming genre film. It gets under the skin, and is a welcome disruption.” (Rue Morgue)
