Storyline

A young and lonely boy named Cameron has telekenetic powers which his father experiments with. The young boy's loneliness is the cause of a strange spell to be cast. A demon from hell is unleashed and tries to take over the boy's soul. A delusional police officer and his new girlfriend psychiatrist are the only ones able to help the child after his father and mother's boyfriend are killed. The demon lives in the boy's closet and in a part of the mind that can only be reached by entering it. Written by Simone Brown <bianca_s_b@hotmail.com>

Cameron comes out of the closet!
20 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

No, it's not a gay coming of age film! Just a bog-standard horror B-movie that would have worked quite well as a 30 minute episode of a series like "Tales of the Darkside," or a similar type programme. But as a full length film, it soon outstays it's welcome.

The child actor is quite reasonable and not as 'cute' as they tend to be in these roles. It's the adults who are poor, their acting never rises above adequate. Not helped by the dialogue or the clichéd plot of 'the monster that lurks in the cupboard.'

All eminently predictable and forgettable, better to go watch numerous old episodes of 'Tales from the Crypt,' to get exactly the same plot done a bit better.
