For the first hour or so it builds inexorably to an excruciating level of dread. It does this so well, we're willing to forgive the small lapses of logic it takes to get us there.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's a genuine scare-fest that will have you squirming in your seat and even screaming aloud. Hide and Seek is the best little psychological thriller in a long while.

It doesn't get stupid for a long time! That's the finest compliment these kind of movies can aspire to. This means you'll have a decent time.

The movie is not without merit. Ten-year-old Fanning ably handles her part, which alternately requires her to adopt a thousand-yard stare and look like a scared little girl.
| Original Score: 3/5

Scary, creepy, mean, and I watched it through my fingers. That said, it is an insult to all of us with Imaginary Friends.

Fanning plays a girl, haunted by her mom's death, who makes Wednesday Addams look chipper. It's great casting.

The actor who gave us Johnny Boy, Travis Bickle, Jake La Motta and the young Vito Corleone still has his chops.

It's a fascinating meeting of equals -- if the child star challenged the master to a game of stare-down, the legend might very well blink first.

Though it's not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, Hide and Seek does manage to hold the viewers interest throughout...

Not great, but an all star cast helps soften the rough edges.

Borrowing from creepy classics such as Psycho, The Shining and Amityville Horror, Hide and Seek rises above its derivative subject matter because of its stellar cast.
