Forgettable
17 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A highly forgettable Canadian TV movie, the only thing of interest about IMAGINARY PLAYMATE is that it was directed by none other than William Fruet, the man who made the likes of SPASMS and CRIES IN THE NIGHT back in the day. It's always sad when a director with a unique and independent style ends up making slick, cookie-cutter TV movies for The Man, but I guess that's the way of film-making...whatever pays the bills.

The storyline involves a guy, his daughter, and the woman who becomes part of the family when she marries him. All goes well at first, but soon the daughter develops a strong relationship with her imaginary friend, who she christens Candace. When supernatural events begin to occur in the home, the girl's stepmother begins to believe that the imaginary friend might not be so imaginary after all...

Weak sauce is the key phrase here. The thrills and spills are diluted, the few supernatural scenes inserted into the production are tame and predictable, and the scenes involving a ghostly kid are laughable. It doesn't help that we're saddled with the continually uninspiring Dina Meyer (STARSHIP TROOPERS) as the lead, or that the male performers are considerably worse than she is. IMAGINARY PLAYMATE is a dud, nothing more.
