Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Hide and Seek
Come out, come out, whatever you are.
At their new home in upstate New York, newly widowed psychologist David Callaway tries desperately to help his traumatized daughter Emily deal with her mother's death. But before long, both David and Emily are being terrorized by someone - or something - named charlie: a "friend" who may or may not be imaginary but is definately the stuff nightmares are made of!
Starring The Artist Formerly Known As Robert DeNiro.
Who gets outacted by something called Dakota Fanning.
Pretty okay watch, but totally forgettable. I know this because after the first 5 minutes of the film, I realised that I have seen this film before not more than a year ago. Yet I still couldn't recall more than a small handful of the things that took place.
Rated R for frightening sequences and violence.
Splendid ways to throw your career into the toilet, Mr. De Niro. You're even being ambitious in the way you attempt to do it.
Although not a brilliant film, it was my first Dakota Fanning film I saw and led me to become a massive fan of her work.
Hide and Seek is a movie that could be a good film but it falls flat. The fact is, as a viewer it is never good when you can predict the ending of a thriller. That is exactly what I did watching this film. Robert DeNiro plays Doctor David Callaway, a therapist whose wife kills herself on New Years Day. The disturbing part is his daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) witnesses her death. She is traumatized. David feels taking her to a isolated house in up-state New York will give her a fresh start. While there Emily begins to talk to an imaginary friend, Charlie. As more and more strange things begin to happen we question if Charlie is imaginary or…
Aunque trabaja de manera excelente el trastorno de personalidad múltiple, llega a diseccionar por descubrir que el asesino es el personaje principal. Al verla de tal manera aburre y se transforma en tediosa.
Nothing too special. Its nice seeing de Niro in a different role than I usually see him in. Really predictable. I haven't even finished it yet and I can tell how it ends.
So this is a considered horror? It was just really a thriller with nothing scary about it. Definitely shouldn't be considered a horror movie.
There are no words sufficient enough to describe how truly terrifying this movie is. It really is terrifying, but not in a good way. One of the hands down worst endings in the history of the movies. I am not kidding. If you have an IQ over the line of mental retardation, you will want to kill yourself after seeing John Polson's excuse for a climax. Surprise ending? You bet your sweet ass it's surprising. As surprising as a last minute root canal. What the fuck happened to Robert De Niro? Dakota Fanning, I can understand. She can bounce back. But De Niro? He has jumped the shark so far that there's no turning back now. He might as well…
Veo los ratings y a veces no me lo creo. Tal vez muchos pongan una calificación baja porque son expertos en cine. En mi opinión, es una de las mejores películas de terror psicológico que he visto, original donde no tiene nada que ver con fantasmas estúpidos ni maldiciones infernales de un libro viejo o de algún asesino que mata en un día festivo... Es una película bien diseñada con un terror ya mental, ojalá salgan más como esta.
O Amigo Oculto é um filme que mostra como uma ou mais pessoas são afetadas por conjuntos de pequenos acontecimentos, que podem mudar tudo.
Robert DeNiro e Dakota Fanning mostram quanto são bons atores nesse excitante thriller digno de estar entre os melhores do gênero.
Ah, the psychological thriller...not a fan per se...but, I gave it a chance since I passed on this when it came out...and I am a sucker for all thing DeNiro, so it can't be all bad, right?
It wasn't bad...but it wasn't good either...it was just kind of, well, there...
Took extremely long to get going, and once it did, the "twist" was too soon. And once I had figured things out, I yelled out the title of another movie (and this movie I yelled out was much better) which left me kind of irritated and felt ripped off...
Kind of sad really...I wanted to like this...had a solid cast going for it and some red herrings to keep things interesting...just felt it fell flat...
Having already seen this I already knew the “twist” (I use this term lightly) along with the general motive and feel behind the film. Fanning really was pretty good at such a young age playing both the regular little girl in addition to the creepier aspects of her character at a high standard for such a young performer. De Niro on the other hand seems to be in cruise control, his lack of range throughout the film is a little underwhelming especially as his character has one of the widest spectrum in both behavior and emotion. The film provides nothing new to the genre and can leave your thoughts as quickly as it entered. There is however some interesting material on the internet regarding the psychiatry in practice throughout the film, if you're into those sort of theories.
Fran said, "I feel like renting a movie." I politely suggested to her that I have a room full of movies, but then she clarified things. "I feel like renting a new movie." Oh, OK.
I almost had her with "Bride & Prejudice," but she really wanted to see "Hide and Seek." I was sort of intrigued, too, I'll admit. I love Dakota Fanning and there's always time to see how far Robert DeNiro has fallen.
Pretty damned far. OK, this guy's wife commits suicide. He moves himself and his daughter away from New York City to upstate. She keeps talking about this friend "Charlie," who were supposed to assume is imaginary. But then Charlie keeps doing things, like leaving messages…
Creepy mystery but ultimately disappointing.
