Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Cameron's Closet (1987)

Directed by:
Armand Mastroianni

Obsessed scientist Tab Hunter puts his young son (Scott Curtis) through psychological hell trying to prove his belief in ESP abilities. After pops is decapitated, the son goes back to live with his mother (Mel Harris) and his fears manifest themselves as a pretty cheesy looking monster (designed by Carlo Rambaldi) that hides in his closet. Written by Gary Brandner, the author of THE HOWLING, and directed by the cousin of actor Marcello.

Score: 3 out of 10
