Plot
A boy learns to cope with his imaginary friend, as he gets older, but never fully gets rid of him. This being a horror movie, we know it will get much worse before it gets better. Miles Robbins, son of Tim, plays an 18 or 19-year-old college freshman who’s too old for BFFs; his imaginary friend is played by Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of Arnold. Both are cutting their teeth.
The schizophrenic dynamic is interesting, if that’s what it is. Of course, Daniel’s existence is the core intrigue. Watching a romance evolve with Daniel as a third wheel foreshadows a very dark ending, but this film is as hard to predict as it is to classify. If, at some point, Luke didn’t investigate his predicament, this plot would have crashed and burn. The things he finds out...
This movie doesn’t have the best poker hand, but it pulls an ace every now and then. It’s sometimes predictable, but the closer you get to that third act, the more random shit you get. Daniel Isn’t Real turns into a mindfuck the moment its protagonist starts looking for answers. The special effects range from interesting to amazing. They give the film a surreal signature.
