The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hidden (2011)


Starring: Sean Clement, Dawn Ford
Director: Antoine Thomas


Premise:
After the death of his mother, a scientist performing experiments dealing with addictions, a man inherits the former monastery turned research center. He and some friends travel there to check it out and soon finds its ghastly inhabitants and the true research his mother performed.

My Take:
On occasions I start watching a movie with the feeling it will be a total waste of time. On occasions my initial feeling are wrong and it's why I keep watching those type of movies. This is one of those movies.

It takes a couple of tiresome themes, such "cabin in the woods", and brings in a good mad scientist back drop to make a fairly original and interesting the story. Sure the characters could have been a bit more rounded out but I've seen worse. Great location too.
Definitely much better than I anticipated.



Rating: In the middle
