Movie InfoA mother discovers a horrifying secret about her young son's imaginary friend in this gothic shocker based on Henry James' The Turn of the Screw and directed by the late Marcello Aliprandi.

Audience Reviews for A Whisper in the Dark
In this movie, a family is concerned that their son's imaginary friend may be real. I was surprised with the ease with which they accepted that he was real, though, it was a lot quicker than in other horror movies. In fact, this is more of a thriller than a horror movie. It was okay, but I wish it were scarier.More
