(mbc.net) Psychologist David Callaway (Robert De Niro) and his young daughter, Emily (Dakota Fanning) havemoved to upstate New York following his wife's suicide.  David hopes that relocating willhelp Emily to start anew -- and alsoto forget about her mother's tragic death. 

David introduces Emily to their next-door neighbor's similarly aged daughter, Amy (Molly Grant Kallins).  The meeting is disastrous: Emily mauls the face of the girl's doll, leaving her terrified.  Emily insists she is innocent though, and that the true perpetrator was Charlie, her imaginary friend.  As increasingly violent events follow, David begins to believe that Charlie could be real.

Hide and Seek was won an MTV Movie Award and was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards.  The picture netted $122 million at theaters worldwide, nearly five times its budget.
