Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Originally produced as part of the Six Films to Keep You Awake horror series from Spain, The Ninth Gate screenwriter Enrique Urbizu's A Real Friend tells the tale of young girl still dealing with the death of her father when she's befriended by a charming vampire. Ever since her father died when she was just a young girl, ten year old Esrtella has lived alone with her mother Angela. Estrella is a child with an exceptional imagination, and in order to more easily digest the steady diet of horror and fantasy stories she thrives on, she befriends the monsters that would otherwise cause her endless nightmares. But Estrella's newest companion may be more than just a figment of her overactive imagination, and it won't be long now until she finds out the answer that age old question: "Do monsters really exist?"
