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.

It's not a bad movie a few tweaks here and there could have made it better. I love watching throw back movies and have never hear or seen anything of this movie, so it must not have been that big. Also for such well known actors the acting cow,d have been a little better. I can't even give a breakdown I'm thinking about it but but it seems complicated when I write it. The movie preview is above other than that it's watchable.

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!

This book was excellent. I LOVE Jeff Goldblum. Tragically the book and movie have little to do with one another. The book is way better. When an antique dealer and family are in an accident, on a trip back from their cabin, he dies. Fortunately a brilliant doctor can and does manage to resurrect and save him with little to no damage. But then nightmares and eerie murders haunt him and he fears he may be the person responsible until he learns his own daughter is marked to be the next victim! This strange tale is done very well, it just isn't quite the one Koontz wrote, which is tragic. The film should have followed the book verbatim and made it excellent!

Time has been surprisingly kind to this 1995 Dean R Koontz adaptation about a man named Hatch (Jeff Goldblum) who doesn't survive a scary car crash unlike his wife Lindsey (Christine Lahti) and daughter Regina (Alicia Silverstone) but is brought back after being brain dead for two hours by a doctor (Alfred Molina) using an experimental process that was tried once before with less than satisfactory results. (We don't find out how unsatisfactory until late in the movie).

Almost as soon as Hatch is released he starts having vivid and violent nightmares of himself murdering young women, which he initially writes off as a side effect from the near-death experience. But he sees a girl from his dreams on the news as a missing person and knows that she's dead. After a couple of more incidents where he calls the police to report murders and no body is found the police and Hatch's wife both think he's going crazy but Hatch begins to believe he's somehow seeing through the eyes of a real flesh and blood killer.

Dean R Koontz adaptations have not been successful and movies like Watchers and Phantoms actually seem even worse now than they did when they originally came out. So why is Hideaway the exception that seems better now? Well there's the script by a pre-Seven Andrew Kevin Walker that is smarter and more playful than the source material. There are the eccentric lead performances by Jeff Goldblum and Christina Lahti who have great chemistry together and seem determined to have as much fun as they can with the material. There's a pre-Clueless Alicia Silverstone who is adorable and a young Jeremy Sisto who is a lot more effective than usual as the creepy serial killer.

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.
