Daniel Isn’t Real is produced by the same team behind 2018’s surprise mega-hit Mandy–and it looks like it! The trailer above is as hypnotic and hallucinatory as Panos Cosmatos’s violet opus. Check it out for yourself!
Daniel Isn’t Real is directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer from a script he co-wrote with Brian DeLeeuw; the film stars Patrick Schwarzenegger, Miles Robbins, Sasha Lane, Hannah Marks, and Mary Stuart Masterson.
Troubled college freshman Luke (Robbins) suffers a violent family trauma and resurrects his childhood imaginary friend Daniel (Schwarzenegger) to help him cope. Charismatic and full of manic energy, Daniel helps Luke to achieve his dreams, before pushing him to the very edge of sanity and into a desperate struggle for control of his mind — and his soul.
Look for Daniel Isn’t Real in theaters, On Demand, and Digital beginning December 6th.
