In case you missed it, Blumhouse has introduced a new playmate, and this one might be more perilous than ever. Courtesy of Jeff Wadlow, we now have "IMAGINARY," featuring "Chauncey," the unsettling new face of terror. The storyline revolves around a young girl who forms a bond with an old teddy bear that transforms into her imaginary companion. However, the innocent turns sinister as Chauncey compels her to inflict harm upon herself, setting the stage for a gripping battle for survival involving her stepmother and sister. Keep an eye out for "IMAGINARY," slated for release in the spring of 2024, and catch the freshly unveiled trailer released just yesterday.
From Blumhouse, the genre-defining masterminds behind FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S and M3GAN, comes 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?
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 behavior becomes more and more concerning, Jessica intervenes only to realize Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.
