Audience Reviews for The Hidden Room

  • Jul 31, 2018
    A wonderful, tight drama that begins with a British gentleman (Robert Newton) turning up unexpectedly to surprise his wife (Sally Gray) and her American lover (Phil Brown). Angered by her string of infidelities, he's planned the perfect revenge, but I won't describe the plot further. I loved the intelligent, British dialogue put side by side with a truly dark crime. The performances are fine, and director Edward Dmytryk creates a nice noir feeling. The detective played by Naunton Wayne is a forerunner of Columbo, turning up to ask 'one more question' with a veneer of innocence, but flashing his understanding and unnerving the culprit. A hidden gem.

    not a bad flick altogether, but there are patches of blandness... and obviously it gets nowhere near the talent of hitchcock but i will be keeping an eye out for films directed by edward dmytryk from now on, just out of curiosity. it seemed to be lacking emotion in the department of sympathising with the murderer and also lacked in the sense that the detective was pretty boring, dull and lacklustre
