Monster in the Closet (1986)

An American comedy horror directed by Bob Dahlin.
A monster that comes out of closets is killing people. A group of folks try to stop it.
The simple plot and characters were pretty standard issue for the mid-80s. The style was a little bit better than the usual TROMA film because it was distributed by them, not made by them. This meant better acting and camera-work that doesn't look like a home movie shot by someone's dad who just got his first camcorder. The monster looked really cool and had a queen alien style mouth on an extension inside it's mouth. There's a section on wikipedia talking about the monster being gay, but it wasn't made clear. There was definitely something going on with the monster being attracted to people and choosing it's victims though. As far as cheesy horror goes, this wasn't too bad. I rate it o.k.
