Critic Reviews of "Closet Monster"San Francisco ChronicleNovember 30, 2016
One way to tell a promising director is by the acting in his or her film, and the performances in "Closet Monster" are solid all the way around, no matter how small the role.Seattle TimesOctober 24, 2016
Sort of a horror film, but not really. It's too funny to be categorized that way.San Diego ReaderOctober 13, 2016
A film school thesis project that somehow found its way into general release.indieWireSeptember 29, 2016
Dunn plays around with perspective and style, but all the flash doesn't obscure the film's emotion and heart, which are deep and true.Los Angeles TimesSeptember 29, 2016
It's nothing less than an emotional exorcism.RogerEbert.comSeptember 23, 2016
Closet Monster is most successful when it uses fable-like qualities to allow us to feel Oscar's emotions viscerally rather than narratively.Out MagazineMarch 03, 2017
Somehow that revolutionary, empowering message never got through to Dunn. His film seems sexually and psychologically arrested in the pathology that blocks coming out.Film InquiryDecember 26, 2016
If you didn't think a hamster voiced by Isabella Rossellini could make you cry, think again.ExcelsiorDecember 12, 2016
A psychological thriller that has the ability to leave no one indifferent, something that makes one of the pearls to discover this year and a future cult title. [Full review in Spanish]PopMattersSeptember 30, 2016
If Dunn can direct his next work with more considered distance from his characters, he has a great future as an inventive and assured film director.Film Journal InternationalSeptember 23, 2016
The determined eccentricity of the entire conceit-liberally laced with moments of hallucinatory surrealism-weighs the movie down, creating an airless ambiance at odds with any youthful verve which might appeal to the viewer.Slant MagazineSeptember 20, 2016
It's when Stephen Dunn dares to inhabit the how and not the what of queerness that the film feels authentic and deliciously strange.
