The Hidden

When I added this to my list of 1987 films to watch, I thought I’d never seen it, but as I was watching it I started getting a sense of having seen it (I started recognizing some sequences and character faces). I think this is a pretty entertaining movie, and Kyle MacLachlan is fun and weird in his role (as an FBI agent, sorta — three years before Twin Peaks). For me, it’s one of the better (and not talked about) sci-fi action movies of the era — and Claudia Christian definitely sexes things up nicely (I remember her more from Babylon 5, so this turn is, ahem, interesting).
