Hideaway is a 1995 film that tells the story of Hatch Harrison, played by Jeff Goldblum, a successful businessman who is involved in a near-fatal car accident on the Golden Gate Bridge. Hatch's daughter, Regina, played by Alicia Silverstone, dies in the accident, and Hatch himself is technically dead for two minutes before being revived by paramedics.
Following the accident, Hatch begins to experience strange visions and premonitions. He sees a serial killer named Vassago, played by Jeremy Sisto, and the murders he commits. Hatch soon realizes that he has a connection to Vassago and the killer is able to invade Hatch's mind and take control of his body.
The film follows Hatch as he tries to understand his new reality, and the strange powers that seem to have been awakened in him after the accident. He seeks out a renowned cardiologist named Lindsay Reardon, played by Christine Lahdi, who helps him to explore his newfound abilities and attempt to understand their origin.
As Hatch's visions become more intense and disturbing, Lindsay begins to believe that his experiences may be more than just a result of trauma. She starts to wonder if Hatch's experiences could be an indication of something more profound - psychic abilities or even a connection to the afterlife.
As the film progresses, Hatch and Lindsay work together to decipher the visions that are plaguing him. They eventually discover that Vassago is not just a figment of Hatch's imagination, but a dangerous and real threat. When Hatch's wife and surviving daughter become targets of the killer, Hatch knows he is the only one who can stop him and he sets out to find Vassago and stop him before it's too late.
Hideaway is a gripping psychological thriller that explores themes of life after death, the importance of family, and the limits of human understanding. The talented cast delivers standout performances, particularly Jeff Goldblum who carries much of the film's weight on his shoulders.
While the film is certainly suspenseful and full of tense moments, it falls short in some areas. The plot is at times confusing and convoluted, making it difficult to fully comprehend the motivations of certain characters or the nature of Hatch's abilities. Additionally, the special effects used to depict Hatch's visions have not held up well over time and can be distracting.
Despite these flaws, Hideaway is still a worthy watch for fans of the psychological thriller genre. It benefits from a talented cast and a unique premise, and while it may not always succeed in delivering a cohesive narrative, it is still an engaging and suspenseful ride.
Hideaway is a 1995 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3.
