Hide and Seek clip, trailer: Jonathan Rhys Meyers stars in remake of Korean thriller

Last Updated on November 23, 2021

Fourteen years after co-writing and co-directing the thriller Spiral (buy it HERE) with Hatchet‘s Adam Green, Joel David Moore has written and directed a new thriller called Hide and Seek. Based on a 2013 Korean film of the same title (a.k.a. Sum-bakk-og-jil), which was written and directed by Jung Huh, Moore’s Hide and Seek is set to receive a theatrical, digital, and VOD release this Friday, November 19th. Just ahead of that release, we’ve gotten our hands on a clip from the film and this clip can be seen in the embed above, along with the film’s trailer.

Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jacinda Barrett, Sue Jean Kim, Mustafa Shakir, Geoffrey Owens, and Joe Pantoliano, the new Hide and Seek is described as an “intense psychological thriller filled with shocking twists and turns”. Here’s the synopsis:

After the death of his wealthy father, Noah seeks his outcast brother to make amends and share the family fortune. But the family harbors a dark secret and a series of cryptic clues will lead Noah on a terrifying trail to the truth that threatens to tear him apart from the ones he loves the most.

This take on Hide and Seek has been rated R for “some violence, disturbing images, nudity, and for language”. It has a running time of just 83 minutes, so if you check it out it will deliver some thrills and then let you get on with your day rather quickly.

This is a case where a remake has stirred up my interest in an original. I’m not familiar with the original Hide and Seek, but the remake seems interesting so I might have to watch both versions soon.
