This March the genre-defining Blumhouse, masterminds behind Five Nights at Freddy’s and M3gan, will release an original horror that taps into the innocence of imaginary friends – and begs the question: are they really figments of childhood imagination or is something more terrifying lying just beneath?
Imaginary hails from writer/director Jeff Wadlow and co-writers Greg Era and Jason Oremland. Today we’re taking a look at the films eery trailer which will certainly make you look twice next time you pass by a Build-a-Bear Factory!
Watch the trailer in the player below:
When Jessica (DeWanda Wise) moves back into her childhood home with her family, her youngest stepdaughter Alice (Pyper Braun) develops an eerie attachment to a stuffed bear named Chauncey she finds in the basement. Alice starts playing games with Chauncey that begin playful and become increasingly sinister.
As Alice’s behaviour becomes more and more concerning, Jessica intervenes only to realise Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, Imaginary stars DeWanda Wise, Tom Payne, Taegan Burns, Pyper Braun, with Veronica Falcon, and Betty Buckley.
Imaginary is in cinemas 8 March from Lionsgate UK.
