The new flick went back to 1988 when Katie and Kristi were just little girls. There mother Julie was married to a wedding photographer named Dennis who liked to video tape everything.

As the movie progressed along,little Kristi started taking orders from who she claims, was an imaginary friend named Toby. This eventually started to wear thin on the parents as they would see her running around the house late at night on the video cameras. Read more »
