I am trying to figure out this movie I watched when I was a kid and I'm pretty sure it is from the 80s, kind of spooked me. All I can remember is they go the closet and open the hangers of clothes and through the closet is a "portal" into another dimension. There was an ugly half man with goat legs...lol sorry to be brief but this is all I remember and was "scarred" by. :-) However I feel it should be distinctive enough... Hopefully! :) Thanks!

PS This was not a cartoon.

Any answers appreciated and sorry for the delayed edit. :)

Thanks for the extra info (this not being a cartoon). Adjusted my answer accordingly. –  Walt Jul 20 at 19:46
    
Was the closet under a stairway? The one i remember was also a cartoon. I would love to see images of it. So that i can prove it's not a figment of my imagination. Im also looking for a french film, silent or or nearly so, where there were several kids runnng about town wearing monotone sweat suits. –  Nik Oct 2 at 23:06

Could be The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe where 4 kids enter a wardrobe and wind up in the magical land of Narnia; one of them (Lucy) first meets a faun (half man, half goat) called Tumnus. Judging by the year, you probably mean the live-action 1988 UK version.

Here's Lucy meeting the faun from that version (around 0:40):

Interestingly it does seem like it could be the 1988 version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Although when I looked at the footage it did not seem to be familiar, however who knows how much my memory altered and let the concepts grow over the years. Thanks for the quick response! What an awesome site!!!!! –  IrateHateCore Jul 20 at 19:52
    
As I remember it was a movie not a TV series, was there maybe a 90s movie similar? –  IrateHateCore Jul 20 at 20:02
    
Doesn't seem to be one in the adaptations that are specified here. There's the 2005 movie, of course, but that's way off. –  Walt Jul 20 at 20:06

@IrateHateCore I remember seeing this back-to-back on BBC at Christmas several times, that would certainly make it feel like a movie as there's no ad breaks on the BBC. –  Crow T Robot Jul 20 at 21:19

if you didn't find the movie yet, i kinda feel like you are looking for "House (1986)" series...check out the clip too. Thank you :) https://www.youtube.com/v/kek5PKnhDNI

"This video is not available in your country". Message from youtube from within the US, my perceived dominant userbase for StackExchange. –  wbogacz Oct 3 at 17:11
    
please google it..."HOUSE(1986)" movie. –  Akhi1 Oct 3 at 17:29
    
I could use Google, if I were that interested. I'm questioning the usefulness of adding a link to a youtube most won't be able to view. That failed delivery is of more interest to me. –  wbogacz Oct 3 at 17:33
    
can you check the link again? i did update them :) –  Akhi1 Oct 3 at 17:47

Can you include some more information about the match? Answers to 'identify this' questions should typically include the points of the film which match the given description. –  Crow T Robot Oct 4 at 5:50
