Monsters in the Closet - Movie Review

Monsters in the Closet

Imagine it.  A zombie staring at itself in the mirror.  Mentally aware, but trapped in the body of a zombie.  It is desperately trying to put a bandage on its wounds, trying to keep its new zombie identity hidden from those who would like to bash its brains in and, when it finally stumbles outside and discovers the wonderful taste of fresh meat that it knows it shouldn’t be eating, well, all bets are off in this hilarious and often just left of center horror flick from Gravitas Ventures.

" full of some solid surprises as the door to this unhinged anthology of horror, once opened, can NEVER be closed"


Monsters in the Closet is full of some solid surprises as the door to this unhinged anthology of horror, once opened, can NEVER be closed.  Sure, sure, the acting is on the C-grade level, but that’s part of the charm as skeletons, zombies, and new homeowners come out to scare the pants right off of us!

When famous horror author Raymond Grant dies under mysterious circumstances, his daughter returns home to investigate his death. Jasmin discovers her father was using evil black magic to write his newest horror masterpiece. When the author's audio book is played out loud monsters, zombies and terrifying beings spring from the undead pages to haunt the living with hilarious and gore-iffic results.

The screaming begins with hilarious results thanks to a POV that is on point as a woman becomes a new zombie and starts doing all the things a zombie does, but she knows it is against the social contract.  She’s getting frantic the more bizarre shit she does and we can’t help but laugh as she goes grocery shopping, tries to cover up her zombie looks, meets an old flame, and kills a kid.  She can’t even kill herself.  DAMN THESE HANDS!Monsters in the Closet

But this anthology of horror and hysterics is only beginning as even severed hands want in on the action.  Full of fun and over the top situations involving mad scientists and beautiful blondes with a bloodlust that goes unmatched, Monsters in the Closet is quite the way get the New Year started when it comes to low budget entertainment.  You'll laugh yourself to the grave thanks to the evil on display in this anthology of the grotesque gone gonzo.

From The Snygg Brothers, and starring Jasmine Flores, Shanna Bess (Manifest), Valerie Bittner (Beaster Day: Here Comes Peter Cottonhell), Tom Cikoski (Superbadazz), and Camilla Crawford, beware the Monsters in the Closet - on digital and on demand January 4, 2022 from Gravitas Ventures.
