    As other plans for this evening sorta fell through (schedule change) I thought of going to see Hide and Seek tonight. Starts in a bit over 2 hours, so sorta messing around at uni (as it's closer to both where I was and the theater I'd be going to, then home is).

    Anyone seen this? Any good?

    i rather liked Secret Window. don't ask me why. just for some reason that movie had me interested. that and the fact that Johnny Depp was in it. Johnny Depp rules!!!

    OK, I did end up seeing it last night, and it was not what I was expecting based upon the description it had received... AKA

    http://www.fandango.com/movie_page.asp?mv=30339&remotefilter=REGL

    OK, there is no way to address this without spoilers.

    The description makes the movie sound like one sort of movie. But in fact, as the plot unfolds, it turns out to be something entirely different. The "imaginary friend" who's described as some "evil spirit", is nothing more then her own crazed father who was undoubtedly suffering from multiple personality disorder. Her father, rather then the daughter was the crazed lunatic. This was something like what happened in another movie (can't even remember the name, something Manner) where people left the theater thinking it was a scary movie about a haunted hosue based on the previews. But it turned out to be some sociapath. People were like WTF?

    When all was said and done, I was rather disappointed. Admittedly, this was partially due to the plot unfolding different then the movie synopsis there left me expecting...

    I'd give it 1.5 (or 2 at most) out of 5 OSNN stars, and recommend a pass on this movie...

    I'd also rate Fandango's description of this movie somewhat poorly as well, for being somewhat mis-leading in the description...
