Warning - disturbing/mature content and images
A family find themselves terrorized by their eight-year-old son's imaginary friend.
MY TAKE: The director mentioned during Q&A that budget constraints dictated the look of the terrifying imaginary friend at the centre of this picture, Z, but I must say, they dealt with it in a way that made Z seem like an expensive and sophisticated CGI creation. Only quick "full reveals" to see, otherwise we're mostly seeing Z through his actions and the behaviour of other characters (not to mention a glimpse out of the corner of the eye here and there).
Another strong ensemble cast fleshes out the characters (whether they annoy you at times or not, it's all a part of who they are and a larger back story). I really enjoyed the twists and turns of plot, including the lead's final solution to the problem...though I very much doubt there's any way to completely get rid of this insidious "friend." And wait for what Kirk Haviland of Blood in the Snow referred to as a truly jaw-dropping moment about midway through the film - it's really something!
A team of con artists posing as paranormal investigators steal from the home of an affluent elderly woman, only to find themselves unleashing a dormant malevolent spirit.
MY TAKE: Creepy cool meets the art world, once again! There's a larger story here, and I hope someday the filmmakers see fit to expand this story line.
