I watch a lot of horror movies that nothing really gets to me until I saw this movie. The movies intensity slowly built up and so did my intensity in watching it. This is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.

Okay.. this is definitely NOT a "Drop Dead Fred" sort of imaginary friend lol.. actually I wouldn't even consider him an imaginary friend. That's all I'll say on that... NO spoiler alerts here! just my opinion (^_^)/ Oh but man I was intrigued to see how Miles Robbins and Patrick Schwarzenegger lived up to their roles... and I was not disappointed. The movie is crafted beautifully.. although some parts.. I gotta say.. I couldn't help but think of "Jacob's Ladder" and compare Miles to his dad... but he really holds his own.

This is now one of my favorite movies! I wished that this was a clean-cut supernatural horror movie, but I still enjoyed the psychological twist. And I love how this movie depicted loneliness and longing for meaningful relationships. It's real and relatable to college students nowadays. The ending might disappoint or confuse some people. The movie is still worth a watch if you have nothing better else to do. 😊
