Hide and Seek Reviews
Hide and Seek fails at doing the one thing it needed to do... be scary.
This is the kind of horror film that seems to be made for 12 year olds. And who wants that unless it has Scooby Doo or Goosebumps in the title?
It's a shame, too, because the movie has a very creepy, unnerving atmosphere to it along with a clever premise. It all works until the big "twist" ending. It's dumb, lazy, incomprehensible and predictable to a fault.
The picture doesn't have much in the way of psychological resonance: you're not likely to go home afterwards and ponder its deeper meaning.
Hide and Seek is one of my first thrillers. I was on the edge when I first saw it. Then I come her to find the reviews. I never seen anything like it again. It is not logical? Confusing? Seriously. I do not think this is mediocre in any way.
