Imaginary Friend
24 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This had the makings of a great film, but the people behind it took far too many liberties with the hauntings. Brad is a doctor, so even without a wealthy wife he would almost certainly have been a member of the 1%. They live in a palatial home, and she isn't exactly unattractive, to put it mildly, so what can go wrong? Lots of things, from when she was a girl. Her father murdered her mother then killed himself, leaving his substantial estate in trust for his daughter with a plethora of strings attached.

When she was young, Emma had an imaginary friend, as kids sometimes do, especially those without siblings. The problem is her imaginary friend is back, all grown up and stunningly attractive. While she is clearly suffering from hallucinations, her husband is covertly doing his best to encourage them hoping to get her committed so he can get his hands on her trust. As so often happens, people who are too greedy end up with nothing, wifey has Brad sussed, and soon he is the one popping pills hoping to exorcise the ghost Emma claims she has killed. And this is where it gets silly, how does one account for blood appearing and then drying up? How does a real live woman behave like a phantom, appearing and disappearing at will? Only by invoking the supernatural, which apparently we are not meant to do. At one point Brad's desperation is quite funny, but one suspects any humour the viewer derives from his plight was unintended.
