Movie Info

Single father Will Reed (Treat Williams) and his teenaged son Seth (Jonathan Jackson) have increasingly uncomfortable conflicts that go beyond the usual coming-of-age difficulties. Seth has grown reclusive and mysterious as his father does his best to communicate with him. Seth's binge drinking and drug use get him in trouble with his girlfriend Robin (Schuyler Fisk) and her family, and his unwelcome advances on Tina (Linda Hamilton), a co-worker of Will's who has a crush on Will, make things even more unsettling. Will is hardly prepared for what comes next: Seth begins giving his father items of clothing as gifts -- items that may be evidence of a series of murders in their small New Hampshire town. Each time Will confronts Seth with the evidence, a very calm Seth has an innocent answer. Even the police think Will is going too far. Is Seth a serial killer, or is Will losing his mind?

All Critics (5)

There's no tension here, and when it comes to thrillers, that's about the worst transgression that exists.

Audience Reviews for Skeletons in the Closet

The ultracheap production completely distracts from a reasonably good story. The decent cast does a good job, but when they don't have much to work with, their efforts are in vain. There are some suspenseful moments, but again the production is so poor, it ruins it.

I rented out my RV to the production company that made this movie. The actors & actresses used it between scenes. I rented out my RV to the movie company that made this movie.

I personally think that the cast does an ok job except for Jonathan Jackson (who's performance had sent a shiver down my spine and I was really suprised). There is also a great story that dawns on a parent's greatest fear. So if you can look past the flaws, it can be a really great movie. :fresh: :D :fresh:
