A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.
When his girlfriend suddenly disappears, leaving a cryptic note as her only explanation, Hank's comfortable life and his sanity begin to crack. Then, from the woods surrounding his house, something terrible starts trying to break in.
When Luke decided to leave his mother's home and face emancipation, he never thought it would be so complicated. His social awkwardness and his diverse traumas will make him seek the aid of an old buddy: his imaginary childhood friend Daniel, who is now a self-confident, manipulative young man. Daniel will start to help Luke, but his intentions will soon prove to be somewhat more sinister.Written by

The actors do a good job with Patrick Schwarzenegger standing out. The directing is pushing the psychedelic button with the wannabe eary music and reddish and yellowish light effects a bit too much in my opinion but all in gets the point across. Not sure I'd have payed to see it at the movies as it has it's lengths and with a run time of 100 minutes it's pushing its luck. For those that like movies with mind tricks, dual personality issues and so forth, you'll find what you need here.
