Editorial Reviews

Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning keep pulses pounding and hearts racing in this chilling horror hit about a troubled father and daughter tormented by someone – or something – named Charlie, a malevolent entity who may or may not be "imaginary" but is definitely the stuff nightmares are made of!

Customer Reviews

I have to say this is one of the most unpredictable movies that I have ever seen.

If you don't figure out what is happening before they reveal it, then you might be one of the people that really likes this movie.
Though the film's main body is made from parts from other thrillers, it starts mildly interesting.

Let me cut to the chase. This film did not, at all, meet my expectations. The trailers lead one to believe that it is a film with supernatural overtones, but it turns out to be something else all together. The story line seems simple on its face. Alison Callaway (Amy Irving), a wife and loving mother, unexpectedly decides to slit her wrist in the bathtub one night, killing herself. Her husband, psychologist David Callaway, comes upon her lifeless body, and so does their beloved daughter, Emily (Dakota Fanning). Emily goes into shock and comes under the care of a therapist named Katherine (Famke Janssen).

Sometime later, when Emily's condition seemingly improves, her father then decides to leave New York City, where they live, and relocate to a small upstate town. No sooner do they move there, they meet the real estate agent and the town's sheriff, both of whom seem a tad peculiar. Moreover, there appears to be something not quite right with the couple next door, especially the husband. When Emily starts talking about an ostensibly imaginary friend named Charlie, the viewer knows that something is afoot. When David develops a new friend of his own, Elizabeth (Elizabeth Shue), trouble lies ahead, as Emily exhibits bizarre behavior towards her, as well as towards Elizabeth's young niece who is trying to befriend her.

As Charlie appears to be becoming an ever present and ominous entity in their lives, and Emily's odd behavior continues unabated, David remains the most kind, concerned, and understanding of fathers. He contacts Emily's therapist Katherine, who is very concerned about the eccentric behavior Emily is exhibiting. Meanwhile, the male neighbor interjects himself into the picture in a seemingly ominous way.

It's important for a director to immediately establish a level of trust with his/her audience. We need to believe that we are in capable hands that will introduce us to characters and situations that make perfect sense, and that events will follow one another with unyielding logic.

At first, I felt that a decision made early in the film was a decision that was outside the "trust" I described above. Toward the end of the film, I realized that the decision was OK - even though I thought it was a bad idea on the filmmaker's part to make that particular decision. I wish that the screenwriters had worked harder to come up with a different way to get from point A to point B. The problem with the "real" decision was that I lost faith in the director/story almost immediately because it appeared - at the time - to be utterly ridiculous.

There was a scene where a cat came jumping out of a closet for shock value, and my lord, I can't count the number of times where that tired old trick has been used. Whenever that happens, I immediately think that someone's being lazy and can't come up with a better way to give the audience a quick scare. Besides - it's quite awful to leave a cat locked up in a closet because they tend to start using it as their bathroom, and you just can't get cat pee out of *anything*.

As the movie progressed, it began to move in a fairly reasonable logic flow, and I started to gain trust in the director/story again, even though there were some unnecessary characters and scenes.

Dakota Fanning (Emily), is an amazing actress whose ability to portray a wide range of emotions that many actors and actresses with years more training and experience would give their left foot for, is the perfect character for the part.

This movie starts off with the death of Emily's (Dakota Fanning) mother. Wanting to get away from it all, she and her father (De Niro), move to the country. There she finds friendship in an imaginary friend she calls Charlie. Strange, creepy things start happening, writing on walls, people dying, dolls defaced, etc...
The movie pretends to play out on the psychological effect of grief, which here came from the death of the mother. I don't want to spoil the movie, so I'll just say that one form we see comes in the shape of Emily's reclusiveness.
But unfortunately, it's just that, it pretends...there's no REAL psychological depth to the movie, which is too bad, otherwise it wouldn't have been that bad.

The movie plays out fairly predictably, in the sense that you can tell who is going to die and who isn't. Now I know this is supposed to be scary or something along those lines, but I just thought it failed at that. I was bored out of my mind during the first half of the movie, and then when things got a little "juicier", the answers came along relatively fast and it's a little dissapointing.
Without revealing anything, I'll just say that I thought the ending was just bad. It looked like a bad wannabe version of the Sixth Sense, or worse, The Village. We're also left with holes with some of the characters, notably the neighbors.

However, this movie does have something going for it : Its cast. Dakota Fanning carries this whole movie, she's great. While I'm not the biggest fan of DeNiro, he's also good, even more so when you take the whole of the movie into consideration. The supporting cast (Elisabeth Shue and Famke Janssen) breezes through as well.

My only recommendation is that if you want to be scared, you'd be better off walking around your neighborhood at 2 o'clock in the morning than watching this movie, most likely because I found it amusing more than anything else.
