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.

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 Pål Øie 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.

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 Pål Øie 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. Øie 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.

This movie, (in my opinion) Has the BEst Artwork, out of all 8 of the film's. And Knowing me, i am a sucker, for The Artwork, on movies. I Read, all the reviews online, and realized, that it was a foriegn flick. Well, i wasn't going to rent it, cause i hardly ever like a movie with subtitles, cause, i have to pay too close attention..lol, Im Easily bored. haha. But, i figured since i had watched 7/8, i might as well, watch this one, so i can say i watched all 8. Im soooo glad i did. As i read in another review, they had said that it was "Chilling" I Couldn't agree more. It is a Very Intriguing, Intresting movie, and really Hold's your attention throughout. Even though, the lead character, doesn't talk that much. This isn't a B movie at all. Cinema MAgic. this movie, is so Under Estimated, and Unnappriciated. Even though, It is not Scary, It is very Haunting, and Chilling. Deffinitally DO NOT regret watching, and this is deffinatally, going to be added to my collection.( And no, not just because of the Artwork. LOL! Even if you think you don't like movies with subtitles, ( Cause ALOT of people Won't even Bother watching a movie, if it has, Subtitles) Watch This one. Any True Suspense/Drama/Horror Fan would really love this movie. However, i do wish they could have dubbed it, But no complaint's it is fine the way it is. Also, it is kind of deppressing, just to think about, and see what the guy is going through. Again, this isn't a B movie, It is an A movie. :)
