Wow, this was bad.
David Girod
It's also weird how the cuts are never very deep, giving way to the only suspense I can possibly discover through this pointless hogwash of a movie.
B. E Jackson
The effects are so fake that it is insulting--the storyline starts out good but becomes very stupid as the movie goes on.

Solid movie. Two men come back from near-death due to a new experimental surgery. Both of them bring something back with them. God vs Satan ,ala "Prophecy", is the main theme and I find these tales to be entertaining. Hideaway will not knock your socks off with a an ever-twisting story arc but what it does have is a solid core plot, coupled together with above-average acting, and special effects that will move you. That last comment seems to be up for debate, some have called the effects "hoaky" and stated they ruined the movie. I disagree. You'll have to check it out for yourself. High recommendation.

Already hooked on Sisto after seeing "Suicide Kings",I rented this solely because he was in it. The movie would have beenloads better without the cheap, totally gratuitous special effects. But I greatly enjoyed the heavy soundtrack ( although I couldn't help taking a little offense at the overused stereotype that killers always listen to metal. What about all the drive-by shooters who listen to rap? But I digress) Unbelievably predictable plotwise, but I could never have foreseen the utter creepiness of Jeremy Sisto in this role as Vassago. And seductive as well, he has a startling range for such a young actor. Looking spookily sexy in trenchcoat and leather, Vassago could easily pass for a seriously psychotic "Lost Boy". Truth to tell,if he had used those eyes and that voice on me, I would have gone with him to a terrible fate. A must for Jeremy Sisto fans!

Despite a stellar cast, Jeff Goldblum, Christine Lahti, Alicia Silverstone, and Alfred Molina, who do their best with a really bad script based on the Dean Koontz novel of the same name, this movie is a stinker. Even the special effects are bad. It is so bad that Dean Koontz tried to disassociate himself from the film, with good reason.

The basic premise of the movie has to do with a family man (Jeff Goldblum), who dies in an accident and is brought back to life through the extraordinary intervention of a doctor (Alfred Molina). Though the doctor's efforts appeared at first blush to have been successful, our family man now seems to be psychically linked to someone else, a psycopathic killer who happens to be a satanist. Of course, it turns out that this killer was also brought back from the dead by the very same doctor. What happens next is too stupid for words. Save your money. Do not buy this movie.

I mainly got these for the movie Excess Baggage cuz I love that movie, but I'd never seen Hideaway before but once I watched it I found it was pretty good too. They are not meant for kids to watch.

This movie was a pleasant surprise finding it on the $.49 rental shelf. The story unfolds at a steady pace that builds up great suspense setting up for an ending that does not work. If the supernatural special effects had been left out or kept to minimum I would have given this movie 4 stars. The ending is just a little too fantastic. It is a movie that makes you probe the what if's of dying and being brought back to life and what the consequences may be of science interfering with that process. Jeff Goldblum gives a good performance. Definitely worth seeing once and it is much better than the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer variety of teen horror flicks.

I have to say, I was fairly underwhelmed by this film. I have not read the book, but I have a feeling that it is much better than this.

Even with all the short comings the movie is decent, but it has some major flaws. For starters, the direction is horrid. The film seems flat, and almost made for TV at times. There is no tightness, nothing close. That hurts the movie a great deal, because the lack of any claustrophobia cuts the tension down immensly. There is only a few short moments where there are any real scares (the begining, and a few of the Sisto in the shower moments), but other than that there is hardly anything here to really scare the audience. The second problem is how the movie seems to glaze over some of the more violent aspects. Yes, there are on screen murders, but they are so tame that the horror of the moment is lost. It all feels very by the numbers as well. The final problem is the acting. Everyone here seems to be trying, but the script gives them very little to work with at times, and because of this, the acting is very on and off. Jeremy Sisto suffers the most in this area. His performances goes from dark and menacing to horridly over the top, and almost pushes this entire affair in to B-movie territory. Jeff Goldblum suffers from the same problem. Christine Lahti has some nice moments, especially towards the end while she is fighting Jeremy, but she also slips in to some over acting. Alicia Silverstone is there, and not much else. She really has no character or than the hostage. The rest of the cast is fine.

The movie does have some very interesting set designs, and the story does have it's cool moments (although those moments are hurt by the very blah pacing).

Now, the movie is far from horrible.
