4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and chilling to the bone May 17, 2010
Format:DVD
More often than not, the hidden jewel in many of these sets of horror films to be released on DVD (After Dark, Ghost House Underground, Dimension Extreme etc.) usually winds up being the foreign entry, and this year's lineup of After Dark Horrorfest films is no different with Hidden. Hidden (Skjult) is a Norwegian horror film that boasts plenty of creepy, chilling atmosphere and some gorgeous cinematography to boot, and surprisingly winds up staying with the viewer even after the credits have rolled. Kristoffer Joner stars as Kai Koss, a man who returns to his childhood home after leaving nearly 20 years before to escape his uber-abusive mother. Inheriting the home he grew up in, painful memories begin to rear their ugly head, and upon the disappearance of two campers in the woods surrounding the house, it becomes quite apparent that there is something quite sinister stirring in the shadows. Those expecting something chock-full of blood and gore will be disappointed here with Hidden, as a majority of the horror is purely of the psychological kind. Though it does feature its share of violence and disturbing material, Hidden's subtleties are what really make it memorable. Its plot is a bit underdeveloped and as such can be somewhat hard to follow, but all things considered Hidden is an ultra creepy and chilling horror import that deserves your attention regardless.

3.0 out of 5 stars So Confusing, it's Scary April 18, 2010
Format:DVD
I think some filmmakers enjoy forcing their audiences into never-ending guessing games. You can watch a movie repeatedly and never once come to a satisfying conclusion. "Hidden" is a film like that. It opens on a very promising note before slowly going downhill; it goes so slowly that, up until the final ten minutes, we still have hope that it might actually go somewhere. Then we reach the ending, which I guess is supposed to be a plot twist, and only then do we realize that there will be no real payoff, except for more questions. The annoying thing is that some serious talent went into this movie, not the least of which is Sjur Aarthun, whose muddy cinematography adds nicely to the atmosphere. Credit also to editor Lars Apneseth for his suspenseful pacing and genuinely frightening cuts.

The mood is so thoroughly established that it's a shame writer/director Pĺl Řie didn't put more effort into a cohesive screenplay. True to its psychological nature, this is a story of misdirection and secrecy, with scenes that are both vague and understated. At times, we're not even sure if what we're seeing is really happening. Some great movies have been made in much the same way, so I'm puzzled as to why it doesn't work in "Hidden." Maybe it's because the plot is grounded in events and facts that can't be interpreted figuratively, which means there's no adequate way to so freely shift back and forth between fantasy and reality. Or maybe it's because virtually every buildup scene ends with a fizzle instead of a bang, at which point we start second-guessing ourselves as to what actually took place.

The story begins in 1989. From the middle of the woods emerges a filthy, frightened young boy, who's clearly running away from something.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Shot Psychological Horror Film March 3, 2010
By Compay
Format:DVD
Originally titled as Skjult, Hidden is by far the best movie in the After Dark Horrorfest series. The first ten minutes of the film alone are unsettling, and immediately pull you in.

Beyond being a suspensful movie, Skjult is an absolute treat for the eyes. The film couldn't have been shot with more amazing settings, from foreboding country homes to a beautiful but sinister forest. The cinematography is excellent, particularly with the Norwegian woods as a backdrop for the movie. While the entire dialogue is Norwegian with English subtitles, you'd still understand the story even with the captions off.

Writer and director Pĺl Řie is Norway's answer to Guillermo del Toro, as Skjult is almost in the same vein as movies like the Devil's Backbone or the Orphanage. Řie did an excellent directing job, though it certainly helped that Kristoffer Joner worked out great as the film's lead. I loved the lighting used in Skjult, although it was a bit too similar to Saw and other conventional horror effects (flickering fluorescent lights). I also could have gone without the scenes thrown in just to get the audience to jump; they simply didn't fit with this type of film.

Don't let the generic horror DVD cover fool you, this is a solid psychological horror film. Halfway through, you think you know the film's conclusion... or do you? I definitely recommend getting this DVD.

Format:DVD
An eerie atmospheric suspense thriller from Norway, Hidden (2009) follows the odd adventures of a man who returns to his childhood home for the first time in 19 years, upon the death of his mother. Part of the After Dark Horrorfest, this tale takes some strange and not always credible turns, as some dark secrets are finally revealed.

The story starts in 1989, when a young boy in the woods, sees his parents killed when their car is struck by a truck. Flashing forward some 19 years to the present, a man named Kai Koss (Kristoffer Joner) has returned home to settle his mother's affairs upon her death. While at the morgue viewing her body, Koss is informed by a former acquaintance, a policewoman named Sara (Cecilie Mosli) that he has inherited her house.

Koss returns to the house, which triggers traumatic memories of abuse at the hands of his mother. The film strikes with a series of jump scares, as Sara arrives on the scene in time to stop Koss from possibly destroying the house. Koss checks into a hotel, where he meets Miriam (pop singer Karin Park) a disquieting member of the staff, and checks into a room with an image of the woods incorporated into the wall covering on one wall. Coincidentally, he runs into Sara for the third time that day in the hotel bar.

In the middle of the night, a restless Koss leaves the hotel to visit his mother's house again. There he sees that a young couple has apparently broken in, and intends to stay for the night. Koss returns to his hotel, only to be summoned back to his mother's house the following morning by Sara, who informs him that some campers are missing, and were last seen around his mother's home.
