TRAILER - THE HIDDEN (1987)
It killed 37 people, robbed 6 banks, 2 liquor stores, a record shop and stole 2 ferraris. Now the fun starts. It just took over a police station.
Why does it take fifteen shots to take down some zoned-out stripper? Because she has an alien inside her that will rip you into a million little fleshy pieces. THE HIDDEN was a video store staple (along with director Jack Sholder's other hit: NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE) and it still holds up. The soundtrack is pure mullet and the bullets fly frequently and fast. This is essentially a retooling of THE THING FROM ANOTHER PLANET done for the rock and roll crowd and the payoff is all devil horns.
See you on forty deuce,
