There’s something scary behind the doors in this Korean supernatural chiller.

Capelight Pictures and Dark Sky Films release THE CLOSET on digital platforms and DVD December 15. Written and directed by Kim Kwang-bin, it stars Ha Jung-woo, Heo Yool, Kim Nam-gil and Park Sung-woong. The synopsis: “After the tragic death of his wife, architect Sang-won [Ha] moves into a new home with his daughter, Ina [Heo], hopeful to restore their relationship. Despite his efforts, Ina feels increasingly neglected by her busy father. She starts keeping to herself more and more and turns to strange noises from within her closet for comfort. Meanwhile, Sang-won is plagued by eerie nightmares and soon after, Ina disappears without a trace. While searching for her, Sang-won meets the enigmatic Kyung-hoon [Kim], who claims to know Ina‘s whereabouts. Desperate to find his daughter, Sang-won reaches out to open the mysterious closet.”

Although the trailer seen below is dubbed, the movie will be presented in Korean with English subtitles as well as a dubbed version.
