It's the first day in a new school for nerdy but likeable Peter (Danny Irizarry) after he and his mom (Wendy Keeling) moved house, and things aren't going very good, as bullies Josh (Grant Brooks) and Derek (Jeremias Iribarren) scare him away at the bus station and he thus misses school. Then later that day, Derek's mom dies in a car accident - and if that wasn't bad enough, Aunt Jode (Jodie Dunn), who's to look after him for the time being, hears a bump in the closet, goes to investigate, and never returns. Instead Peter's visited by a mummified being who tells him he has to be in bed every night at sundown, otherwise he'll fall prey to the monster in the closet - and it has to be his bed, and if he tries to run away, the monster will find and kill him. So he pretty much has to pretend his aunt is still looking after him and has to ditch pretty much everyone who asks too many questions. This has its positives too, as he makes friends with neighbour girl Amy (Charlotte Arnold), and romance soon blossoms. But then Josh and Derek egg his house, and somehow the monster in Peter's closet catches and kills Derek - which brings two police detectives (Dan Foley, John Newkirk) onto the scene, who start to ask too many questions, but it also scares Josh shitless to a degree that he from now on supplies Peter with food. Things start to really get out of hand though when a social worker (Barb Rood) comes round as well, and everything starts going completely downhill from there ...


Now Don't Run surely is a fun movie, a mix of coming-of-age movie (with the mandatory teen romance thrown in), dark fairy tale, weird horror of the Twilight Zone variety, sort-of slasher, and whatever else you might have, really - but thing is, it works rather beautifully, as the film never attempts to over-explain, leaves plenty in the dark (virtually but also literally) to keep the audience properly guessing whilce creating an atmosphere of dread. And Danny Irizarry in the lead gives a very compelling performance, making his fear palpable, supported by a solid ensemble, all of which amounts to making this one a very cool ride indeed.
