Yikes! Go for Horror get Horrific

From the very start it feels like the movie was made in a day. The beginning meanders along slowly but in this time doesnt really accomplish much. The characters aren't developed and instead look like they're just warming up for their first acting gig.

Some of the attempted scary scenes feel like family channel kids horror with the combination of poor acting and low scare factor. The actor that plays the dad goes on a trip midway through the movie almost signaling like the director had witnessed enough, but didn't want to not use the footage they'd already filmed, so sent him on some music trip.

Once the action takes places an incredible amount of weird random dialogue takes place. The older neighbor of theirs really doesn't serve much purpose despite their efforts to make her relevant. In fact the movie could have been done with just the mother and youngest daughter and that way maybe they could have developed them more.

The ending scenes in the other world I suppose are fine, but even with them they manage to throw in some weird cringey clichés. By this point the ship had sunken and in some ways thought it might have been at least comical if the bear got at least one of them.

It seemed by the end nobody in the theatre was taking it too seriously. A combination of a March Break teenaged audience with a poor quality horror opened the floor to all sorts of heckling with each movie going party looking to chip in their two cents.

Before going to see this movie, remember that Dune is still very much an option, even if you've already been to it.

Seems like it was written by AI.

I don't know that anything could convince me that AI wasn't heavily involved with writing this. It's offensively bad. It's a boring concept, the bear is the least threatening thing I've ever seen, the plot barely exists, and it's way too long. I'd call it comically bad, but that would imply a "so bad it's good" sort of movie. It's almost insulting that Blumhouse is able to get away with making movies like this into a full theatrical release.

I hate this movie and everything that it represents. This is the laziest, most boring thing I've seen in ages, and there are people somewhere in Hollywood making millions of of it. Bleh.

Too much talking, too low on scares

There are many horror flicks with evil-infested dolls or puppets, but you keep hoping for something different. Alas, this "Imaginary" is as generic and predictable as they come: the little kid in a home with some complicated family-dynamics, the house with a creepy history, the cute doll (here a teddybear) that we at times (oh horror!!) see turn his head and that more and more gets a supernatural hold on the kid, and a climactic finale in which the evil finally shows its true terrifying shape. It's all there.

Well, even predictability doesn't have to be bad, if it's well done, with some decent special effects and a solid story. But unfortunately all this was not the case here. The story is shaky and unnecessary complicated, and direction and editing are disappointing: the whole movie is way too talkative and explanatory (especially from the moment the old neighbor lady steps in), and for a supposed horror movie it's way too low on serious scares. Teddybear Chauncey is definitely no Chucky or Annabelle, until the final showdown he doesn't cause any deaths or destruction, even the obnoxious boyfriend (in most horror movies a number one candidate for a gruesome killing) got away in one piece. There's an inventive plot-twist halfway in time, and the supernatural Escher-like labyrinth, in which the family in the end gets trapped to fight the evil, is well done, but that couldn't save the movie. A pity, since the acting was pretty good. The cast had earned a better vehicle to ride in.
