Hide and Seek

Rated R 2005

If you can make it past the first 10 minutes or so without busting up laughing, chances are that you've never seen a horror movie before in your life. This hack-job of a "thriller," featuring Robert De Niro as a widower and Dakota Fanning as his daughter who immediately goes goth after mom's suicide, may steal from the best, but it does it so badly and obviously that it has to depend upon gratuitous shock-cuts and soundtrack stings to elicit any kind of reflex-action fright from the viewer. When the girl mentions that she's made a new friend named Charlie, Dad figures she's just acting out, creating an alternate imaginary personality to express her anger toward him. Never mind that all evidence points to the fact that Charlie is a real person who's sneaking around when Dad's away. If father or daughter would actually communicate with one another, or anyone else, there'd be no mystery at all, but instead things are tediously drawn out until the final reel.
