Closeup Gallery completes the trilogy of short films that began with In the Palace (2000) and Birds (2001). The small communities of those earlier films are replaced here by an intimate communion of two; the earlier elaborate mise en scene are distilled into the microcosm of a card-covered table; the conceit of ‘hand made magic’ that travels through the trilogy is here literalized through the card players’ world of fakery, where simple materials transform.

John Carradine narrates five horror tales, each with a comically predictable surprise ending. In the first, "The Witches Clock", The Farrells have purchased an old mansion in Salem Massachusetts, and are warned by the town doctor of the history of witches in the community. The second story, "King of the Vampires" deals with a slight-figured killer, called the King of the Vampires by Scotland Yard. The third, "Monster Raid," is about a man turned zombie when he OD's on his experimental drug. "Spark of Life" deals with a doctor Mendell obsessed with the experiments of a thrown-out professor named Erich von Frankenstein. "Count Alucard" is a variation on the Dracula story, with the Count acquiring the deed to Carfax Abbey from Harker, as vampiresses and dead bodies start turning up.
An art museum, on a dark and stormy night. The statue of Nero comes to life and tries to burn the nearby painting of Rome but his matches go out. He tries to get a set of "hear no evil" monkeys to take the matches from a still life, but they refuse and he teases them. The other artworks come to their defense. Nero plays hurt, and gets the monkeys to help; after they stumble around in the still life for a while, they get drunk on lighter fluid and start breathing flames, which they combine with the fluid to act as a flamethrower. Soon, the museum is ablaze and all the paintings are either sounding the alarm or coming to fight the fire.
Kevin Atherton leads us through a computer-generated exhibit as inventive as it is satirical. The museum is appropriately impossible in its scope, as Atherton playfully acknowledges the imaginative space of virtual worlds. The fantasy exhibitors have free rein in their show, “Four Rooms and a Toilet,” even to the point of cutting windows in partitions, exposing the building’s masonry, and breaking down the wall between the sex-segregated toilets. Atherton, as the gallery guide, justifies each of the artists’ disruptive requests in high-art terminology as we “move” through the rooms.

Unflinching and poignant, Peanut Gallery shows us how we can transform when we begin to fill the silences between those closest to us.
