    This is a big fat miss unless you're for movies that don't take mental health seriously. Great cast and a great idea, but it just stalls almost from jump. This film tries to be repulsive. It's a growing theme in movies I've seen recently. The filmmakers are so angry (and mentally ill) that they want to show mental illness in a way that makes them feel good, but does nothing to help people who may be struggling. This movie joyless and it tries to be (for what reason??), but there comes a time when the average viewer will say enough is enough. The Cynical critics love this trash because they are mostly elites types who understand without films they are out of work so the average viewer once again will not agree with the "i do declare" types. Bottom line, there's probably something wrong with you if you enjoyed this and I wish you the best of luck! One last thing, always great to see Sasha Lane and Hannah Marks, who are great. Patrick Schwarzenegger was impressive here also, but Miles Robbins can't act. Great bloodlines, but he delivers a line like a brick dropped out of a 20-story building! Final Score: 1.5/10

    Boy's imaginary friend returns in adulthood, gives him bad advice, makes him hurt people and then, reveals he's a demon.

    A great movie, very stylish, well-shot and decently executed, could've been longer and used a bigger budget, but oh well, ir was great for what it was! Definetly recommend it!

    What a fantastic film, this is the way I like my horror/thrillers movies with a high dose of messed upness. It does make you feel like you are viewing someone's nightmare. The script is a clever and fresh amalgamation of ideas that have been explored in other well know movies. The type of movie Guillermo Del Toro would never direct.

    Not bad, but could have been so much better. The ending is nebulous, which is not a surprise for horror movies that want you to keep guessing where the whole thing's going, which is the tiredest crap ever. The ending that's not an ending. Why do horror movies HAVE to put this in virtually every time? Tired.

    A horrifying, articulate, beautiful depiction of a very real thing that is, surprisingly enough, not typically ventured into by horror. 94/100

    It starts off well but soon becomes poor and the end is simply hard to watch!!!!!

    I tried. Hard. Finally turned it off. Took too long to get no where.

    Not exactly effective horror film that pulls all its punches except on the gore. It isn't scary and its characters undeveloped.

    Watch Rob Lowe & James Spader in Bad Influence first.
