Hide and Seek
I’m not one for horror movies, or scary kid movies, so I really didn’t want to go to this one. But you know, this time of year, between the new year and Oscar time, our choices are really limited. Robert DeNiro is the dad, the adorable Dakota Fanning is the daughter. They lose their wife/mother and move to the country where we have to guess if they are living in a haunted house, or if the daughter has an imaginary friend come to life, or if they are being harassed by creepy neighbors. So, it’s a mystery. It’s not really scary – some of the “gotcha” scenes are broadcast pretty loudly so there’s no reaction by the time you get there. Some of the scenes are so cliché that you have to laugh. They set up for a sequel at the end, but I really doubt it will get that far.
