DANIEL ISN'T REAL
2019, 96 min, Dir: Adam Egypt Mortimer

If you’ve always wanted to see DROP DEAD FRED reimagined as a horror film, then this is your movie! Luke (Miles Robbins) is a Manhattan college student wrestling with his studies, his artistic inclinations and caring for his mentally ill mother. As a kid, he had an imaginary friend named Daniel - who suddenly reappears as an adult. Initially, Luke loves having Daniel around; he's exciting, daring and brimming with confidence, all qualities that Luke lacks. But it isn't long before Daniel's darker side emerges, and what follows is a thrilling and horrific look at mental illness through a genre lens. An absolute gut-punch, and one of the must-see films of 2019.
