I reserve half-star ratings for very special exceptions. Hide and Seek is one of the few movies I've seen that fits my "half star" criteria. First of all, this has no reason to exist in the first place. The worst kind of straight-to-video garbage, it shamelessly force-feeds cliches while also messing up the most fundamental ideas of conventional writing. Every single performance is poor. Gallo and Hannah look disinterested throughout, and Jennifer Tilly is beyond insufferable as she wails and screams during every second onscreen. This is a stupid, incoherent, unprofessional, boring waste of time.
