Consensus: Cleverly written and directed, this is a tight, atmospheric and claustrophobic low budget British thriller.

Time Out

It's all given a much-needed shot of credibility by the strength of the writing and the subtlety of the directing. Losey is a talent to watch, and 'The Hide' makes for one hell of a Hollywood calling card.

It's a good deal too stagey to work as a thriller, but the location shooting on desolate mud-flats is resonant and the twist has a sick verve. Addictive stuff.

Marek Losey's thriller The Hide is a macabre gem. It's a crude but enthralling duel with shades of Peter Schaffer's Sleuth. Shades too of Hitchcock's Rope.

Moody, minimalist and well-observed this is a quirky low-budget triumph for director Marek Losey.

Peter Bradshaw

A claustrophobic, tense, ultra-low-budget British film with a neat final twist.

For two thirds of the film, Hide plays as David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino-lite and not those filmmakers as they are today but as they were in, say, 1994.

Every time you think you've got The Hide pegged, and marked it down as one of those small British films, it twists out of reach. A play adaptation that exceeds boundaries and defies expectations.

A beguiling thriller which draws its considerably grisly strength from a first class script.
