DANIEL ISN’T REAL
Director: Adam Egypt Mortimer. With: Miles Robbins, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sasha Lane, Mary Stuart Masterson. USA 2019. 96 mins.
UK PREMIERE - From SOME KIND OF HATE director Adam Egypt Mortimer, an unflinching examination of what can happen when the id, the ego, and the super-ego are all at war with each other. In this MANDY-esque slice of provocative, psychological horror, a troubled young man’s imaginary friend from childhood returns as an adult eager to indulge in darkly disturbing desires. An innovative and thought-provoking descent into madness, one pushing storytelling boundaries and delivering truly nightmarishly surreal visuals, Mortimer tackles the topic of duality with self-confidence in a mesmeric fairy tale fantasy that morphs into chilling cosmic horror.
