Director Adam Egypt Mortimer (Some Kind of Hate) is back with a new horror film called Daniel Isn’t Real, which tells the story of what happens when a man’s imaginary friend from childhood comes back into his life and begins exerting control in dangerous ways. We’re giving away two posters from the film signed by Mortimer and star Patrick Schwarzenegger, and you can find out how to enter to win below.
Just in case you need a refresher, here’s the trailer for Daniel Isn’t Real:
Our review says the film opens with raw, unreasoned violence and immediately puts the viewer on edge before ultimately shifting into a third act that “is a neon-soaked torture chamber of weird that I liked more the longer I sat with it.” With its imaginary friend conceit, I can’t help but think that this film looks like a more modern and horror-tinged riff on Fight Club. And while it certainly doesn’t have that undefinable X factor that David Fincher brings to his movies, this one hails from the producers of Mandy, a violent, psychedelic, freak out of a film that gave me one of my most memorable moviegoing experiences of the past ten years. They’ve earned my attention.
