Trivia

The viral marketing campaign for this film was so successful that the "Blink Man" legend was included in a book on local folktales, called Haunted Ellicott City by Shelley Davies Wygant. After the book was published, director Erik Kristopher Myers reached out to the author to let her know that he had concocted the legend as a marketing campaign for the film. Despite Myers' concern that she would be angry, Wygant said that, "I thought it was genius." See more »

dark comedy with under-the-skin creepyness
14 February 2019 | by liekeritzemaSee all my reviews

I believe that Butterfly Kisses is a dark comedy/mockumentary in the likes as C'est arrivé près de chez vous, Bad Ben and Digging Up The Marrow.

(mind you, I thought the same about Best Wordt Movie, still won't believe it's for real)

Watched it with my 15-year old daugter, who was really creeped out. In my opinion she missed the 'clues' that this is more of a psychological character study.

Better prove that the acting is great than people reacting that this is a manipulated documentary doesn't exist. (whoooosh?)

I found this one of the nicest quirky movies I have seen.

Whatever it is, I found it a fun and entertaining movie, and my daugther liked it too, for completely differrent reasons.

Give it a go and make up your own mind.
