Thoughts on Hide in the Light

Characters – The characters are large group of Urban Explorers that head off to nights in haunted or mysterious locations, they don’t go in search of ghosts, rather go in search of adventure searching for thrills. Apart from the brother sister relationships we don’t learn too much more about this group, other than that they enjoy this type of experience. This helps us because it keeps us guessing to who could be in for the next attack.

PerformancesThe performances are strong from the whole cast, it would be unfair to stay anyone didn’t stick out as the true star of the show, but no one came off like the weak link. Each performance made the film feel real throughout.

StoryThe story is one that in the past could have been one that goes in a couple of direction, we have had awful ones, we have had forgettable ones and on that rare occasion we have had that one that stands out. This is in the stand out group, because it takes away the details of ghost hunting to keep the story focus on a group that just enjoy exploring the abandoned buildings. The keep things simple as the film does everything to keep us guessing o just where things will be going and who might make it to the end which is, all we ask for at times.

HorrorThe eerie tone of the movie helps with the horror, we have the setting which makes each moment feel like we are trapped in a building which could leave horror around any corner. The horror also doesn’t hold back any moment, which will surprise you.

SettingsThe film is set in an abandoned building with a history to be mysterious, it keeps our characters in a location through the film.

Special EffectsThe effects are strong here, instead of using too many we are left to imagine what is happening in the scene.

Scene of the Movie –
Cellar doors closing.

That Moment That Annoyed Me Not knowing any stories of the previous adventures of this group.

Final ThoughtsThis is one of the horrors to watch out for in 2018, this brings a forgettable sub-genre and makes it one of the best enjoyable and edge of your seat horrors of the year.

Overall: Early contender for Horror of the year.
