Review |
The Closet film review: Korean horror, starring Ha Jung-woo, is flimsy and implausible and does not live up to the strong start

  • Ha Jung-woo stars as a widowed architect whose daughter vanishes – the latest in a string of disappearances of young children in the area
  • The opening is suitably unsettling but the film almost immediately loses the viewer’s attention as unsympathetic characters behave implausibly at every turn
