A frightened young boy summons the courage to confront an ominous presence in his bedroom closet while struggling with the emotional pain of watching his family life slowly unravel in first-time feature filmmaker Shelli Ryan's haunting tale of innocence lost. The two most important people in Jake (Anthony DeMarco)'s world are drifting apart, and as his parents navigate the treacherous mine field of divorce, an evil presence makes itself begins to make itself known. By day Jake does his best to be brave in the face of an uncertain future, and by night he cowers in his bedroom, paralyzed with fear at the malevolent force that lurks in his bedroom closet. But no one believes Jake's claims about a monster in the closet, leaving the frightened child with no other choice than to face the ultimate evil all alone.

Audience Reviews for Jake's Closet

Netfix must hate me. Listed as horror, but soooo NOT. The monster isn't even in the closet, it's in a crawlspace from OUTSIDE the house. All the characters beyond Jake are A-class jerks. We're the directors trying to alienate the audience too.

interesting forced-to-grow-up-too-fast film. Really well done, the two child actors do an awesome job. They carry the film and portray the 'hidden' world that exists for kids when adults are not available perfectly. The adults are almost superfluous to the story, other then as the cause. They set the stage, not much else. Mom and best friend are more caricatures than characters, very over the top and annoying enough that even if they are in the right, you want the monster to get them just to shut them up.
