Daniel Isn't Real DVD



Troubled college freshman Luke (Miles Robbins) suffers a violent family trauma and resurrects his childhood imaginary friend Daniel (Patrick Schwarzenegger) to help him cope. Charismatic and full of manic energy, Daniel helps Luke to achieve his dreams, before pushing him to the very edge of sanity and into a desperate struggle for control of his mind -- and his soul.

Review of Daniel Isn't Real by Peter Walkden

When Luke (Miles Robbins) was a little boy, he made friends with another little boy named Daniel. But as Luke discovers, Daniel is a bad influence for him. Luke also discovers that Daniel is just an imaginary friend and is not real. After a horrific trauma, Luke is forced to get rid of Daniel by locking him up in a dollhouse. In the present day, Luke (Miles Robbins) is now a college freshman. Unfortunately for Luke, he is having problems dealing with personal traumas. Thinking the release of Daniel (Patrick Schwarzenegger) may allow him to move forward from his status Luke releases Daniel from the dollhouse, discovering Daniel is now a similar age. Daniel agrees to help Luke with his life and personal issues.

But little does Luke know that Daniel has plans that are far worse than he could ever imagine.

If you’ve ever seen the film Drop Dead Fred (1991), the best way to describe this film is to use the same concept but turn it into a horror movie. It’s a concept that I really liked the sound of, but its results are a mixed bag for me.

The look and tone of this film is great. It is as dark and gritty as you would expect a horror film to be. The film’s setting and locations were also positive to see. Eerie sounds tracks were also used to give a nice compliment to the overall horror tones.

Daniel Isn’t Real has a positive first act with a good general plot and introduction. We gain a good amount of information about Luke’s upbringing and the problems that are occurring within his own home. The introduction to a young Daniel is also positive, and it’s enjoyable to see this new friendship develop only to turn dark.

Overall, Daniel Isn’t Real brings a fantastic concept to the horror genre. The film’s concept, filming style and gritty tone were also rather appealing to me.
