Hideaway Review

Image for Hideaway

Hatch Harrison had a traffic accident with his car. At first the doctors said he was dead but then they succeeded to bring him back to life after two hours. But Hatch starts to have strange sensations in following time and discovers that he is now united with a mad killer who had entered his mind during his death.


Based on a Dean R. Koontz novel, this stars the ever-reliable Jeff Goldblum as a man brought back from the dead by Alfred Molina’s creepy surgeon. But before you can say “Ooh matron”, he’s sharing the murderous visions of a serial killer who’s set his sights on Goldblum’s young daughter (Alicia Silverstone, hardly getting a look-in). Co-written by Seven screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker and directed by the bloke responsible for The Lawnmower Man, this is passably creepy with some neat flourishes.

Interesting but flawed
