Imaginary friend by Bracey100 Imaginary friend by Bracey100
Done for the Insidious 2 contest I wanted to reflect how often children are taken in by evil entities who prey upon their innocence. The parents are unaware of these dark goings on until far too late.

Still, very creepy.

Is the bear gave the child a knife? He wanted to kill his mother?Too weird!

It can be seen as the bear giving the child the knife, or that the demon or the child himself hid the knife inside the bear. Also you can imagine that there is no demon and that the shadow just shows the child's murderous intent.

That kid needs to be adopted by someone else. He has real mommy issues.

This is really good, I mean you even wrote down what the kids is about to do "Kill Mommy" the boy has the K on his little hand, he probably thinks that like his teddy bear, his mommy ain't gonna suffer. Scary but very nicely done.

I tend to think at that moment, when he picked up the K and reached for the knife at the same time is when he became fully possessed. That the whispers from his shadowy friend became an actual voice in his head telling him that everything was ok, this was all going to be for the best. Like you said, he doesnt even think poor mommy will suffer, Wouldnt his friend have told him so otherwise?

Thanks for your kind words and observations.

well, this was just going on the description of how children are 'preyed on by dark forces'

In movies that means demons and monsters
In real life, child molesters and serial killers

Sort of like if Freddy Kruger was done with subtlety instead of a dumb sweater

"Kill mommy" or "Kill me mommy"?

Hmmm interesting idea. Could go either way when you think about it, but Im going with the idea of the child being directed to do horrible things.
