On Blumhouse’s release calendar for next year is Imaginary, a film that centers on Jessica who moves back into her childhood home with her family. Her stepdaughter Alice soon develops a concerning attachment to her stuffed bear, Chauncey, which they found in the basement and Jessica becomes increasingly concerned with her behavior. When Jessica intervenes, she’s forced to realize Chauncey is more than just an old stuffed bear.
