Awful movie
21 November 2007 | by dickvisaSee all my reviews

Quentin Tarantino was 100% right when he said the nowadays Italian movies suck! After having seen "La Terza Madre" by Dario Argento i though that was impossible to find another movie with so much nonsense on it. The Hideout seems to be a movie shot by an amateur Avati long time ago made a movie called "La casa dalle finestre che ridono" which is an Italian horror masterpiece...the Hideout is suppose to be a sort of sequel but it is nothing else that a vacation director Pupi Avati decided to do with his own family... no acting because Laura Morante plays her self as usual, hysterical and confused...no story because the story is just a way to break people ears with loud scary noises and dumb voices, no suspense and a lot of foreseen things. Avoid this movie and pray for Italian movies resurrection
