Great For A Cold Dark Night!
26 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

If you can get around the horrible soundtrack and cheap special effects you might actually like this movie. I did.

It's sort of a Carrie meets The Night Of The Living Dead clone about a little girl who lives with her father and brother in some isolated backwoods community. She spends her nights at the graveyard deep in the woods behind her house.

A sitter arrives from the big city to help take care of the little girl and soon discovers the rash of killings in the community might have something to do with the 12-year old. When the sitter realizes that the little girl has the power to move and animate inanimate objects it becomes crystal clear about just what she has been doing at the graveyard all those nights.

I adored this movie. The title Kill and Go Hide conjured up so many idea's in my mind that I just had to see it and I wasn't disappointed. It is heavy on the cheese factor in some scenes and actually quite frightening in others. There is a scene where the babysitter awakens from a slumber at four a.m. and looks out her window at a scarecrow hanging on a post. What came next kind of gave me a chill. I also enjoyed the stormy grave side promise from the little girl to her deceased mother. "I promise you, they'll pay."
