Quite reminiscent of The Road, Hidden is quite slow in the first half of the movie. This however is carried very well by the central characters, all very believable in their roles and they draw you into their world surprisingly easily. There's quite a bit of mystery and suspense builds slowly. Usually I'm a know it all about story lines however Hidden kept me intrigued and even surprised me. Its quite a dark movie and a slow burner and quite apocalyptic in it's nature so you'd need to be in the mood. I watched Pixels before hand which probably cost about 20 times as much and had a cast of 20 times the size and I definitely enjoyed Hidden more. Completely different movies mind, and Hidden is an adult movie of course. By the end however I did want more, although I doubt there'll be a sequel, however certainly in a crowded market a well made film.

Refreshing and good movie with actual suspense - want more!Reviewed byjonnytheshirtVote: 7/10
Hidden posits one simple question, who are the real monsters? What hides beneath the facade we as people and as a society present to the world?
This film looks at the nature of what it means to human and asks us to examine how we define our humanity. Are we tolerant of difference or are we frightened by it? How does this shape our interactions with those who are different from us? Are our assumptions about others really a damning reflection of our true selves or a vindication of how we value life no matter its form?
This is a subtle, slow paced, emotionally moving film. The question it asks is done so quietly and as a consequence its message may be lost on those not paying attention.
The acting from the cast is generally excellent all round. Its hard to find fault with the performances and I'd say given the environmental limitations imposed, the quality of acting is even more remarkable.
Are there any shortcomings? This really is a somewhat subjective question when it comes to Hidden. If you like your science fiction thrillers fast paced then this is a shortcoming. If you expect every question to be answered then this film may, once again, frustrate you. I would say personally I did find Hidden occasionally, overly sentimental but this is a small consideration.
In summary, for the most part, Hidden is an above average film. Its intelligent and its well directed and acted. Its message is a timely one too given the intolerance and cruelty people and societies seem to demonstrate on a daily basis towards one another. Eight out of ten from me.
Delivering tension without resorting to over exposure the "threats" is a great indication of how effective a horror movie is. Hidden works incredibly well with small scale, dark atmosphere and mental trial instead of ordinary gorefest. Its narrative is only hampered by a few technical or consistency flaws, which are forgivable towards the end.
Story follows a family of three as they hide from what seems to be a virus outbreak. It shows their current predicament while revealing the preceding events in timely fashion. This may feel like typical zombie movie, but the focus on this small cast is highly engaging. The slow pace from early on sets the tone very well, it gives more personalities to the distraught family that can resonate to audience.
Acting is solid all around, all three characters have appealing traits which also accompanied by natural weaknesses. Emily Alyn Lind as the daughter is fitting, most of the drama here can only work with her character. It's a hefty task for a child actor, but she's believably likable and innocent on screen.
What sets it apart is the twist on last act. To divulge it would be a disservice to the movie, but it's a fresh development from the usual movie of the kind. However, the visual might not be clear, perhaps to obscure the monster in question, but it's entirely too dark in some scenes. Characters sometimes act differently, like the daughter who appears mature, but acts childish when the plot demands it. That, along some other quirky disparities.
This is not the thriller or horror one might expect, but it's a fresh take on old genre. While it stumbles once or twice, it manages to separate itself from its peers with intense psychological thriller as well as nifty twist on last act.
