Bored to death one night I decided to try this flick out on crackflix. The poster looked pretty cool and the description seemed okay, though I had to ignore the crappy rating (2 stars….yikes!). Diving into the film I quickly learned that certain sketchy doctors were experimenting on addictions patients at an isolated (of course) and ominous looking research facility far out in the backwoods of anywhere USA. Ya I know that sounds pretty badass but despite an interesting start Hidden failed to deliver in pretty much every aspect. While the sound and cinematography were good and the acting wasn’t terrible the film just seemed blah. Lacklustre if you will. The terrible cgi and brightly lit scenes smacked of made for TV. The mayhem and killing were dreadfully boring, dull and gore-free (which was a big turn off). The climax held no surprises or twists and left me disappointed.  Being Canadian I really want to like home grown films but sadly Hidden left me wanting more.  Lots more.  Watch this one only if you are into crappy, boring, poorly executed, and generally uninteresting films.  Hidden @ IMDb.
