Directed by Brandon Christensen, who also brought us the impressive Still/Born in 2017. It helped having Colin Minihan, one of the Vicious Brothers, as the scriptwriter, a force to be reckoned with, who brought us Grave Encounters (2011). The very tumescent and heroic What Keeps You Alive (2018) was directed by Minihan himself, and he has returned as writer of Z, where the main character's imaginary friend turns out to be not quite as imaginary and friendly as we thought. Everything unfolds in a very typical Canadian family setting. Or maybe not as typical as we think. Josh's mother obviously does not see the funny side to her son getting up at night, grabbing a large knife and making his friend a sandwich with it. His father thinks it's all a load of hogwash.
