I wrote the following three paragraphs and then scanned some of thereviews....only to find everyone else saying pretty much the same thingas I had written, namely that this movie is a hidden gem and enormouslyentertaining. Well, add my name to the list of admirers.

Here's a low-grade sci-fi/crime story that is amazingly entertaining.It's a fast- paced account of normal people taking turns beinginhabited by an alien being and suddenly turning into out-of-controlkilling machines. It guess it kind of sounds dumb, but seeing it isbetter than describing it. The characters in here are wild.

Kyle MacLachlan plays his normal mid-80s strange character, a la BlueVelvet, Twin Peaks, etc. Here, he is the FBI agent....or is he?

On the first viewing I found Michael Nouri's role as too abrasive,taking away from some of the fun of viewing this, but, in futureviewings he was more tolerable. What also helps this film is a littlebit of humor thrown in here and there. It will probably wind up as acult classic.

This movie is best seen without knowing much about the plot. It startsoff as standard action movie where you follow a policeman who isinvestigating some strange event of a seemingly normal person kind ofgoing crazy and suddenly committing thefts, violence, escaping thepolice. As the story develops, the story turns in unexpected but veryfascinating directions.

The pace is kept high, never does ones attention wander. The acting isgood and the story comes over as very real. I won't reveal too muchhere of what happens later as there are many elements of surprise whichadds to the whole experience.

This is one of the movies that I have enjoyed watching several times.My vote is a 9.

Sholder's allegorical B-movie offers unblinking aliens, loud rockmusic, car chases, and the presence of Kyle MacLachlan together with aquiet, emotional core. It's the sort of film that gives low budgetscience fiction a good name, one that effortlessly combines a sharpview of society together with the brisk pace of 'The Terminator' (1984)

At one level, 'The Hidden' is a film about acquisition, by implicationdigging at the American Dream. The aliens acquire human bodies, much ashumans might go shopping, casually discarding one form for another whenit is worn out or no longer wanted. The possessed Jonathan P. Millersees a ghetto blaster on display, takes it after clubbing the salesmanto death. A little later on, after viewing the Ferrari just sold to aarms and antique dealer, he states glibly 'I want that car'. Its newowner has just mused 'Do I trade in my Mercedes or just hang on to it?'(his white suit ironically anticipating imminent mortality.) Later, inhis final incarnation as Senator Holt,like a child who has made itsmind up, the alien can announce just as decidedly and without any senseof irony 'I want to be President'. Power in American politics can be'bought' just as easily as a cassette player, its accession just animpulsive decision by the strong. Apart from the scheming necessary toexchange bodies, what is most disturbing about this invasion is itsrelative guilelessness, how the alien 'Sees something. He takes it.'Other SF films might offer up a plan to be defeated; 'The Hidden'replaces galactic conquest with ghastly cupidity.

Kyle MacLachlan makes an excellent Lloyd Gallagher, a weird 'FBI'presence instantly suggesting that of Agent Dale Cooper, whom he was toplay 3 years later. MacLachlan had previously only appeared in twoother Lynch productions : 'Dune' (1984) and, more notably, 'BlueVelvet' (1986). Sholder was quick to take advantage of MacLachlan'squirkiness and androgynous appearance, ideal for a part in whichambivalence and social disorientation are essential. There's a faintecho too of 'The Man Who Fell to Earth' (1976) in this characterseparated from his loved ones, a lonely survivor on Earth.

The title of 'The Hidden' refers most obviously to the invader lurkingwithin humans, only emerging to swop bodies. But there's somethingelse, equally hard to see, and only gradually expressed: the emotionallink which binds kind and kin. The recognition of these ties is one ofthe film's most rewarding aspects. Beck's home and family life are botha new, and a familiar, experience to Gallagher. His question 'Yourlittle girl. She is very special to you?' is both naïve andaffirmative, a means to assign the value of such relationships in a wayinitially quite lost on Beck. 'Gallagher's melancholia predominatesduring his visit to the Detective's home (despite the humorous natureof his indigestion). His sense of loss, which overshadows so much ofhis mood is only finally resolved in the last scene, as 'Beck' iswelcomed back to life by his daughter.

Men, a woman, even a dog, are all possessed by the alien before it endsup as the Senator. Both the bespectacled de Vries ('that Jack - kindaquiet. What'd he do? Rob a bank?') and the sedentary Miller areostensible squares, mild-mannered citizens whose ensuing transgressionsare completely out of character. Even the police Lieutenant, one of thealien's last victims, apparently lives alone with his dog. Theirviolent actions are faintly ludicrous, even to the point of raisingnervous laughter. When Miller smashes the radio playing 'I believe insunshine', after glaring at it with alien incredulity for a longmoments, it invariably raises a chuckle in the audience, as does hisbelching in the diner. Far more of a frisson is created by thetake-over of the stripper. Her already aggressive on-stage sexuality,and existing control over the patrons has been supplemented bysomething far more dangerous. To a (largely male?) audience, this isfemale empowerment brought home with a vengeance, her cool return ofthe gaze unnerving.

Sholder's uneven career contains at least one other good film. 12:01(1993) is an effective and amusing variation on the 'Groundhog Day'theme co-starring Martin Landau. Others are best passed over insilence. It may well be that and 'The Hidden' will remain his bestwork, as they still play well and remains fresh on repeated viewings. Asequel to the present film followed, by a different director, but itwas not in the same league.
