I had a whole rant to write but screw it. I don't feel like wasting anymore time on this movie so here it is in a nutshell: it's simplistic, slow and boring with a capital Z(zzzzz).
Hidden was selected as an entry at the After Dark Horrorfest. In this psychological horror tale, Kai returned to his hometown after his abusive mother died and left him her house in her will, strange things began to happen. It's quite decent but moved very slowly.
A Norwegian psychological horror/thriller featuring excellent cinematography and acting. The Norwegian forest setting sets the mood perfectly and slow pacing works great. Where the movie falls short is telling a cohesive story. We are provided various clues as to what's really going on, but they are so sketchy and contradictory, it's almost maddening trying to tie them together into anything even remotely conclusive.
