I am wondering what Lilith will have to say about this video.

Felt a little deeper than it needed to be. I must admit I was starting to trail off about halfway through, the whole "lust" segment seemed like too much analysis of something that isn't necessarily there. Pretty spot on about the whole "abusive parent" part, that's the meaning I always went with.

On a side note, does anyone else pronounce the name as "clo-zer" (if that's even a word)? As in it closes in on you.

I think that's how it's actually supposed to be pronounced tbh.

I've always thought it was named after this

NIN is one of my favorite bands and that's one of my favorite videos so I wish that was somehow true hah.

Honestly, whenever I read the monster name 'Closer' that was always the first thing to come to mind too.

The Siam from SHH looked like to some degree it took visual inspiration from the Closer.

The Siam being a male and female bound together... and also from that nin Closer video,

Maybe all just coincidence?

I mean..."You get me closer to God".

I dunno how that could be a coincidence. Why else would it be named the Closer?

Wow... really good video. Love how one room can make such an impact to the revelation and storyline.
My only issue with it was the SH1 section - the large monster is supposed to represent the Romper, isn't it?

Image

They were pretty large even for Harry - so imagine how large they would have been to Alyssa.
It still represents the same feeling though - a fear of adults.

But I do agree with the SH3 stuff - I never even noticed before that the image had changed .. I assumed it was the same one

Look forward to having a glance through his channel and seeing some more vids like this! :)
