Monsters in the Closet (Movie Review)

Monsters in the Closet (Movie Review)

Like R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps novels, wherein his stories take on lives of their own, life imitating art in the new film Monster in the Closet. The debut feature film from The Snygg Brothers, Monsters in the Closet, produced by Purgatory Blues LLC and distributed by Gravitas Ventures, made it’s big debut on Digital and On Demand Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

Working as writers and directors, modern day technology, smarts and ingenuity enabled The Snygg Brothers to handle all aspects of Monster in the Closet on a limited budget. This should be noted, because that can be a challenge, but they do so with maximum punch. Filmed during the pandemic both in New York City as well as Allentown, PA, Monsters in the Closet shares the story of a fictional famous author named Raymond Castle (Tom Cikoski: Beaster Day: Here comes Peter Cottonhell 2014, Mad Maxine 2018) and his estranged daughter Jasmine (Jasmin Flores: Beaster Day: Here comes Peter Cottonhell 2014).  
 
It is often difficult to find success as a writer and when it is within your grasp it is even harder to maintain. Raymond Castle had made a living from his stories, but recently sales and inspiration dropped like a hot rock. Finding a book of black magic turns his luck around until the gift becomes an unexpected curse. Foreseeing his own death, Raymond shares the book’s creativity with Jasmine via recorded video. From here Jasmine is thrust into nightmare after nightmare, each time bringing her closer to her own death. Now the question is, will she survive?

While not ground breaking, Monsters in the Closet is a fun way to spend a little of your time. It plays like an anthology Horror film, and some of the stories are good, while others are no so much. That said, the film tries to capitalize on the gore and gross out factor, so if you are a fan of low budget cheesy gore it’s worth checking out. Not the best thing out there, but not the worst in the vast world of independent Horror, Cryptic Rock gives this debut film from The Snygg Brothers 2 out of 5 stars.
