The sense that a mental illness or an addiction is a ‘thing’, a seperate entity from the person experiencing it, is not entirely uncommon. Hidden takes the idea that addiction is something seperate to the next level.
Hidden has a lot of potential. Brian (Sean Clement) has been extranged from his mother for years, but when she dies he is left her addiction recovery center. Along with a group of colleagues, he sets out to determine if the center is worth salvedging. While at the center they stumble on a secret passage which leads them to realize just what was going on in that center. Unfortunately, while the plot was solid (not great but solid) the film sort of fell flat for me. There were a lot of directions that a project like this could go in but I felt like they went with the safest route, which ended up disappointing me.
