Hideout Heads to Prime Video

With a script that blurs the lines between captors and captives and features shockingly violent scenes and bizarre WTF moments, Hideout becomes a Rubik’s cube of shifting power dynamics and supernatural peculiarity. Needless to say, it was one of my favorite films from Salem Horror Fest last year and ranked among the top genre films I saw at any festival last year. But don’t just take my word for it, Martyn Wakefield of BloodGuts UK Horror called the film “Truly imaginative and shockingly chilling…” and says it features “one of the best horror scenes from independent cinema ever.” While Michael Therkelsen of Horror Society gave it a “9 out of 10!” calling Hideout Don’t Breathe meets Evil Dead.

Hideout is about a band of thieves who seek shelter at a home in the middle of nowhere following a botched liquor store robbery that leaves one of them incapacitated. As they impose themselves on the home’s inhabitants, the anxiety of getting caught by encroaching police begins to pale in comparison to staying in the foreboding house, especially when a growing sense of malice against the group starts emerging in the form of waking nightmares and inexplicable paranormal occurrences. The film is immediately tense and rarely lets up, weaving a twisty tale of cat and mouse between the threatening criminals and the secret that exists in the home they’ve made their safe haven. The result is a home-invasion horror-thriller like you’ve never seen.

You can now see Hideout for yourself. The film is currently available through all VOD outlets and has just started streaming free on Prime Video. New Jersey film fans will also have the opportunity to see the movie as well as meet director Kris Roselli and actor Bryan Enright when the film screens as part of the Garden State Film Festival’s 20th anniversary on March 26.
