Hide and Seek
All of your typical horror clichés like a suspicious sheriff, creepy neighbors and a vulnerable girl friend can be found in the psychological thriller Hide and Seek. Robert De Niro plays a psychologist who takes his 9 year old daughter played by Dakota Fanning to up state New York for a fresh start after his wife commits suicide. Unfortunately the young girl’s imaginary friend named Charlie begins doing some strange and gruesome things in their new home. The one big problem with this movie is the director. The beginning is to slow, he has too many clichés and even though it’s a good script he just doesn’t know what to do with it. I did enjoy the twist at the end and I never saw it coming. (Of course I’m blind and I don’t see anything coming.) Even though there was a lot of problems with this movie it was some-what entertaining and I’m giving it a C- rating.
This movie has been given a R rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
