Suzanne and her stepdaughter Molly move into a new house, hoping to start afresh after Molly's mum passed away. When the seven-year-old makes an 'imaginary friend' named Candace, Suzanne assumes it's just her way of coping with everything that's happened. But as Molly's behaviour becomes ever more erratic, Suzanne begins to suspect that her stepdaughter's new playmate might not be so imaginary after all. Written by Frankie

Don't Care
30 April 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

When the summary of someone's 10/10 review is "I love this movie", it's pretty safe bet that not only have they *not* written a review but an opinion but also that the said rating is probably a major overstatement. And at least in the case of this excuse for a TV movie, even the average at the time of writing, 5.6/10, is an overstatement.

There seems to be no info on the length of the movie, but I can assure it is *too* long. 110 minutes including commercials was what was allotted for its "around midnight" time-slot here - presumably not because it is too scary for kids but because it is likely to put the viewer into sleep. For a thriller, this is seriously lacking in thrills and the makers don't seem to have the slightest idea of how to create a ghost story. There isn't a mood to speak of - the scenes seem like they are all first takes, the angles and the music couldn't be more bland and the editing is from the bottom of TV movie barrel - slow and lazy.

If, for some bizarre reason, you end up watching this movie - maybe because there really is nothing else on, or you want to calibrate your rating criteria, or perhaps are feeling masochistic, do have a game: count every movie cliché you recognize. The script is so full of recycled plot elements that you are likely to give up. The whole thing is a 3/10 example of pointlessness likely to just leave you feeling indifferent.
