What does the dysfunctional family have to do with the closet? There are children who make a closet as a hiding place when all the pressure is too heavy, there are also those who are locked up in the closet as a form of punishment from parents. The plural cabinet is a scare means in horror, but rarely does it give substance like The Closet, a story where the suffering of children calls for a soul.

Sang-won (Ha Jung-woo), an architect, and his daughter, Yi-Na (Heo Yool), have just moved to a new home close to nature. The move aims to improve their awkward relationship, after a deadly accident that claimed the life of Sang-won’s wife. As a result of the accident Sang-won is often hit by panic attacks. The problem is, Yi-Na is always silent. Expensive imported dolls that, according to Sang-won, wanted her daughter, were completely untouched.
That’s where the problem is. Real communication never happens, and Sang-won never asks, what exactly Yi-Na wants. Kim Kwang-bin as the director and scriptwriter slips the conflict – which has been raised several hundred thousand times by films of various genres – into a form of horror pattern that has familiar groove elements: Yi-na begins to change after meeting a “friend” came from the closet of his room until then he disappeared. Even the third act again presents a journey into another realm.
The Closet does have a cliché. The difference lies in the subtext regarding parenting and neglect of the child, after which the answer to the mystery unfolds, it feels increasingly dark and painful. Moreover, Kwang-bin’s courtship (which included Park Sung-Woong’s creepy smile) was able to reinforce the disturbing nuances of the moment. Often, horror in everyday life is no less terrible than the terror of spirits. There was also a scolding about media framing, which unfortunately just hitched a pass.
