Skeletons in the Closet Movie Review

Subscribe Treat Williams
A direct-to-video thriller starring Treat Williams called Skeletons in the Closet? I was scared before I ever pushed the play button, just not for the right reasons.

Imagine my surprise to find a reasonably clever script hidden among the sappy marketing copy ("Cross the threshold of fear!"), with Williams turning in a credible performance as a dad who suspsects his son (Jonathan Jackson) is murdering the hapless residents of his sleepy New Hampshire town. Or is it the dad who's doing the crimes, trying to set up the son? Sure, the story isn't exactly groundbreaking, but it is decently suspenseful and for the most part, intelligent.

The main drawback to Skeletons in the Closet is its unfortunately pathetic production values. The movie is shot on videotape, and little has been done to hide this cost-saving measure. The video looks so bad, though, it comes across as someone's home video -- not what most movies want to look like when you're digging up bodies.
