Storyline

Based on actual events that took place only a few years ago, it weaves the enigmatic tale of Jonas Littleton...a good, but faulty man whose life had taken a sour detour - to a prison cell. After having admitted his guilt and serving his sentence, he's being picked up outside the prison yard by his probably faithful wife for a long-awaited reunion. Unfortunately, in the following weeks, reality sets in when his felony record makes his repeated attempts to rejoin the workforce humbling and futile. His most recent job interview results in his bending his elbow at a watering hole. Too much to drink and an errant suspicious pill causes our disappointed husband and father to seek advice from a soothsayer who runs a weird little shop a few doors down from the bar. Under the influence and under the gun, a deal is struck in the fortune teller's lair which proves to be "too good to be true"? As if a beaded curtain has been parted, Jonas' life immediately turns around. Job offers. Money. ... Written by Lanny Rethaber

Closets: Now what exactly did I do to deserve that
20 May 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

There is quite the story behind the creation of Closets (Otherwise known as Hunting Evil) and none of it is good.

You see the movie was created in 2010 but didn't get a proper release until late 2018. Why? A host of reasons by the looks of it and I get the impression that the alternate title was an attempt to disguise everything that happened. The film is so bad that the director has disowned it and the one single notable cast member Corbin Bernsen publicly slated those behind the camera.

It's a supernatural tale about a ghost hunter who goes to prison after a demon encounter goes wrong, to make matters worse he then loses his family and goes on a mission to track the creature and exact revenge.

The lead is terrible, a bargain basement William Shatner who stunk up every scene. The sfx are outstandingly bad, the plot is rather mediocre and honestly Closets really has nothing going for it at all.

It's just so bad across the board and I'm not even remotely surprised that folks have distanced themselves from it. Considering they had almost a decade to tweak it there really is no excuse for this absolute monstrosity of a film.

Beyond the movie it gets worse when you realize the cover art has nothing to do with the movie and the only other review on IMDB is a relative of the lead man and several other cast members. Doubt me? Check the name and then check the cast, today's word is Rethaber.

Hop, skip, jump, SPRINT away from this mess.

The Good:

Nothing springs to mind

The Bad:

Some really poor sfx

Characters ageing/or lack of is moronic

Dishonest cover

An all round mess
