This movie uses this case as a basis for the Mercy Black character. See more »

My Imaginary friend hates people
17 October 2019 | by chelanoSee all my reviews

We all have a dream of having out imaginary friend come alive. And then it murders people and drives you mentally insane. Oh wait, am I the only one? That is basically what this film is about. Besides a little bad acting, the movie is not horrible, but it is not great either.

The story is interesting, but it put on screen in a more cheesy way. Austin Amelio is in this film and even though he is probably the best acting they have, it is hard to see him without a burnt face since I was binge watching too much The Walking Dead.
