“Imaginary” follows Jessica, returning to her childhood home with her family. When her stepdaughter, Alice, befriends a seemingly harmless stuffed bear named Chauncey, innocent games turn sinister. Jessica soon discovers Chauncey is more than just a toy, raising questions about the true nature of imaginary friends. From Blumhouse, the creators of Five Nights at Freddy’s and M3GAN, this horror film explores the dark side of childhood imagination.

Is there a trailer?

Yes, the two and a half minute official trailer for Imaginary is available. The family is depicted returning to Jessica’s childhood house in the hopes that it will serve as a “happy place” for them.

It’s not that utopian, of course, and when Alice finds a stuffed bear named Chauncey and begins to play games with it, things start to become spooky. What appears to be a harmless list quickly turns unsettling, and Jessica begins to worry that something darker may be happening.

Who is the director of Imaginary

Jeff Wadlow, known for films like “Cry Wolf” and “Kick-Ass 2,” is set to direct “Imaginary.” Wadlow’s track record includes the less-than-stellar “Never Back Down” and “True Confessions of an International Assassin,” which garnered a 0% Tomatometer score. Despite his past, “Imaginary” promises a new venture into horror, exploring the dark side of imaginary friends.

What is Imaginary rated?

For fans of intense kids’ horror, classics like “Village of the Damned” and “The Omen” made a lasting impression. Hoping to deliver that same unsettling vibe, “Imaginary” by Blumhouse, known for R-rated horror, might opt for a PG-13 rating to attract a broader audience. Director Jeff Wadlow, whose track record includes “Truth or Dare” and “Kick-Ass 2,” often caters to a younger demographic. While PG-13 doesn’t guarantee compromise, it aligns with Blumhouse’s strategy to appeal to a wide range of horror enthusiasts.
