Film Reviews: “The Hidden” (1987)


Starring Kyle MacLachlan, Michael Nouri, Chris Mulkey, Lin Shaye, and Clu Gulager.

FBI Agent Lloyd Gallagher (MacLachlan) is on the hunt for a space alien serial killer who constantly inhabits new bodies, changing its identity along the way. Gallagher finally knows which the body the alien is in, and recruits a local police detective to help stop the creature before it morphs again. Gallagher reveals that this issue is more than personal to him because the creature killed his partner, his wife and his daughter.

This was a lot of fun. “The Hidden” has it all. Explosions, car chases, guns, emotion, suspense, and humor! This should appeal to just about anyone. Awesome cast and a very smart story. Kyle MacLachlan in particular is great in this, and very reminiscent of his role as Agent Dale Cooper in “Twin Peaks.” Overall, I call this film a big win!

3.5 out of 4 stars.
