It's entertaining in the creepy way it plays out as a home invasion flick against an unlikable materialistic family.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

first-time director Huh Jung shows a real mastery of pacing, atmosphere and tension as well as a thematic engagement with the destructive power of material acquisitiveness.

Audience Reviews for Hide And Seek (Soombakkokjil)


This is my house. A family consisting of a married couple and their two kids need to move and get into a better area. When they move into their new home, strange things start happening around them, including people start dying. Initially, the husband's long lost brother is believed to be behind the occurrences, but it may be more complicated than the family can believe. "I'll appear before you. I'm not a ghost." Jung Huh delivers Hide and Seek in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is very intricate and well delivered. The film starts heading in one direction and quickly becomes more complicated and involved. The character development and evolution is very good and the acting is very solid. The cast includes Mi-Seon Jeon, Jung-Hee Moon, and Hyeon-Ju Son. "My dad shivers in rage." Hide and Seek was a movie I came across on Netflix that had an interesting plot and seemed like a worthwhile thriller. This was as good as I hoped. If you're looking for a unique thriller with several twists, this is perfect. I strongly recommend seeing this film. "Please save us from evil." Grade: A-

Enjoyable stalk and slash mystery thriller that is reminiscent of the early works of John Carpenter and Wes Craven. A somewhat unoriginal script is bolstered by energetic performances and stylistic direction which keeps the viewer on edge.

A wealthy Korean man investigates the disappearance of his estranged stepbrother from a slum apartment complex; could he have been a serial killer? Although it's burdened by a large number of horror movie cliches and illogical behaviors, this K-horror also has enough mystery and psychological layers to earn a mild recommendation.
