    prepostiional phrase: "from" someone or somehwere.  sadistic is an adjective, that maniac is a noun with a determiner (kind of a cross between adjective and article), and that sadistic maniac could be called a noun phrase which is serving as the indirect object (object of a preposition).

    The noun phrase is 'that sadistic maniac'.  The word 'from' is not part of that noun phrase.

    Who did I hide it from? I hid it from my brother. 

    What did I hide it from? I hid it from the cat.

    Who did I hide it from? I hid it from that sadistic monster.

    In all three cases the construction is the same - I hid it 'from' a noun or noun phrase.

    Neither. It's a prepositional phrase.
