Hidden remake cast

02.06.2007
Remakes of 80s genre movies are still getting cranked out at a steady rate, and the tentacle-filled fun of the minor classic THE HIDDEN is on the way in a new form. Retitled THE SEED, the update has a pair of actors already involved -- Neal McDonough (recently seen in FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS and, ironically, THE HITCHER remake) and Aussie actress Radha Mitchell (PITCH BLACK, SILENT HILL).

The original flick from director Jack Sholder starred Kyle MacLachlan as an interstellar cop who teams with Earth detective Michael Nouri to hunt a gooey alien body-jumper with a fondness for fast cars and excessive violence. The new version comes from Rock Shaink Jr. (great name) and Mark Jonathan Stanley, and will apparently retain only the basic framework -- the official summary of THE SEED is "A mysterious killer returns from the past, forcing a young detective to return to a case that took her mother's life years before." I hope there's tentacles, at least. They make everything better.

Both actors should be able to handle themselves -- Mitchell has twice battled shadow creatures (and fights a killer croc in the upcoming ROGUE), while McDonough fought the Borg and The Rock. Unfortunately, he lost both times...
Extra Tidbit: McDonough appeared in a low-budget movie titled THEY CALL HIM SASQUATCH.

great movie

I love the Hidden. It was 80's cheese but went well over the nachos. The thing that made this movie good was the actors and some basic fx that were just enough to keep it going. While this movie pales in comparison to super titles like the Hitcher and Near Dark (both E Red stories) it still should be on your shelf if you were a teen/early twenties in the 80's, and wanted a unkillable stripper running around. I guess this means we will be seeing a remake of the Goonies soon. Sorry Sloth.

Fuckin' hell.... Do producers nowadays just swing by Blockbuster once a week and pick out a new movie to remake?

This is beyond ridiculous. I SORT OF understand remaking old movies that are actually well known, but remaking obscure cult movies that most of the general public won't have heard of and were already shit? How can that equate to good business practice in ANYONE'S mind?

Give financing to the smaller-scale but higher-quality original projects you stupid dipshits.

weird

From the title, I figured this was going to be a Hollywood remake of the recent critically acclaimed French film 'Hidden' ('Cache').
