Between the mental illness that runs in his family and the violent tragedy to which he was a young witness, Luke endured a traumatic childhood. He learned to cope with the help of his imaginary friend Daniel—until they got into trouble one too many times, and Daniel had to go away.

But now that he’s a freshman in college, Luke (Miles Robbins) is struggling once again in ways that only his charismatic, cocksure old buddy could understand. Sure enough, the likewise fully grown Daniel (Patrick Schwarzenegger) gets him back on track with school and with women. Just as surely, however, his bad influence has reached monstrous proportions. Luke is in for the fight of his life, with the possession of both his sanity and his soul slipping from his grasp.

Director Adam Egypt Mortimer co-wrote the screenplay for this electrifying thriller-horror hybrid with the author of the novel it’s based on, Brian DeLeeuw.
