Movie Reviews

Skeletons in the closet
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was fabulous! It was thrilling and constanly had you asking: What is really going on here? If you like a puzzle you will like this movie. Jonathon Jackson is better then he has ever been and Treat Williams and Linda Hamilton are great as well. To anyone who enjoys a good thriller with a twist you will enjoy this!"
Skeletons in the Closet has real meat on its bones!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen the initial DVD of this film, which was featured at the Nodance Film Festival. Great scenery, tightly written and edited, great cast. The cast has someone for everyone--Treat Williams & Linda Hamilton for the post-teen audience, Jonathan Jackson and Schuyler Fisk for the young lovers. Although it has some action scenes, it's pull is the uncertainty--who's the bad guy here? Who killed whom? Who's playing the head games? And why? In the end it's all about a family that strugles with family secrets--like murder! Don't miss the opening scene."

"A man fears his son is a serial killer; the son plays on this and torments his father; is he the culprit or is it the father? That is the premise in this low-key, yet tense and enthralling psychological drama. The answer is rather predictable, but thanks to the intense performances by Treat Williams, Linda Hamilton and Jonathan Jackson, the movie grabs you and doesn't let up until it's last mesmerizing scene. Williams has aged nicely, maintaining that handsome leading man quality, but has gone a little pudgy and hangs on to that guy next door persona. Hamilton, looking a little tired and older,nonetheless conveys a quiet sexuality and seems to enjoy her character; Jackson switches from smart-mouthed brat to the abused victim rather effectively. The direction is terse and not ostentatious, Powers letting the story tell itself.
A tight little overlooked film."
A Nice Little Thriller

"This little psych-thriller had some meat to it, but the cast is what made it. Treat Williams, Linda Hamilton, and Jonathan Jackson were excellent, and I found myself quite absorbed by the mindgames that seemed to be going on between the father, and son, not to mention the uncertainty that they provoked in Hamilton's character.

It was fun , and I'll see it again."
