Imaginary or not, imaginary friends are terrifying...
...KHC has learned that RLJE Films has picked up select rights to Shudder's Z, from director Brandon Christensen (Still/Born), and will be releasing the film on multiple platforms in September! The film itself is a disturbing imaginary friend gone wrong horror flick which our Jeffrey W. Hollingsworth personally enjoyed (read his review here).
In Z, written by Christensen and Colin Minihan (What Keeps You Alive, Grave Encounters):
"When Beth’s son brings home an imaginary friend named “Z,” she becomes concerned that he is falling too deep into a world of make believe. He starts to display extremely destructive behavior, blaming Z for all of his actions. But after he gets kicked out of school, Beth is forced to find a solution. She medicates her son, making him unable to see his imaginary companion. But now Beth sees Z…and he wants to be her friend."
The film stars Keegan Connor Tracy (Final Destination 2), Jett Klyne (The Boy), Sean Rogerson (Grave Encounters), Sara Canning (War for the Planet of the Apes), Stephen McHattie (Watchmen), and Chandra West (White Noise).
RLJE Films will release Z on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and VOD on September 1st. The Digital HD release will include an iTunes Extras package that features an audio commentary with director Brandon Christensen, Behind-The-Scenes interviews with the cast and crew, never-before-seen deleted scenes and outtakes, and an insider’s look at the music, the incredible VFX, shooting with an actual train and how the filmmakers achieved the notorious "Stair Scare."
