Cleverly written and directed, this is a tight, atmospheric and claustrophobic low budget British thriller.

It's all given a much-needed shot of credibility by the strength of the writing and the subtlety of the directing. Losey is a talent to watch, and 'The Hide' makes for one hell of a Hollywood calling card.
A claustrophobic, tense, ultra-low-budget British film with a neat final twist.
...the film boasts a promising opening half hour that's slowly but surely squandered...
For two thirds of the film, Hide plays as David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino-lite and not those filmmakers as they are today but as they were in, say, 1994.
It's a good deal too stagey to work as a thriller, but the location shooting on desolate mud-flats is resonant and the twist has a sick verve. Addictive stuff.
Moody, minimalist and well-observed this is a quirky low-budget triumph for director Marek Losey.
Every time you think you've got The Hide pegged, and marked it down as one of those small British films, it twists out of reach. A play adaptation that exceeds boundaries and defies expectations.
Marek Losey's thriller The Hide is a macabre gem. It's a crude but enthralling duel with shades of Peter Schaffer's Sleuth. Shades too of Hitchcock's Rope.
A beguiling thriller which draws its considerably grisly strength from a first class script.
The Hide is a modestly scaled but cleverly written chamber piece.
An enjoyably dark, sharply written drama with strong performances from its two leads.
One claustrophobic location, two men, a relationship that shifts with the flood tide... and a film that far exceeds the limitations imposed by its low budget and small scale.
"In the spirit of Bonnie & Clyde & Natural Born Killers" Where was the spirit? It seemed to start off OK but after awhile I just gave up & didnt care anymore
Entertaining flick, nice twist.
