Stranger in the Closet

A terrifying horror with an unexpected twist.
4/5

Review

Written and directed by Robert Dill, ‘Stranger in the Closet’ is a short horror film that masterfully employs mystery and suspense to captivate the audience. The film stars Robert Dill and Amy Sturdivant, portraying a couple startled by an unknown presence in their bedroom closet. Set in real time, with limited dialogue, the horror is a chilling watch with a blindsiding narrative twist.

The 5-minute film opens with a man getting ready for bed. His frightened girlfriend alerts him to a mysterious occurrence in the closet. Courageously, albeit with trepidation, the man enters the closet. Without spoiling the unsettling narrative twist, viewers will be rewarded to a terrifying outcome that will make one’s hair stand on end. A gripping ride of suspense throughout.

Robert Dill has created a riveting horror that relies solely on the act of suspense. The audience will be trapped on tender hooks from start to finish. Visually, the film is professionally shot using high quality cinematography and lighting. Sound plays a key role in the suspense building and is delivered with fine precision right until the narrative climax. Robert Dill delivers a praiseworthy performance – aiding the sense of fear brilliantly. Amy Sturdivant’s portrayal is simply unmissable. High praise to Robert Dill and the entire cast/crew – a truly terrifying watch.
