Story


From the team responsible for the international sleeper hit "Saw"-writer/actor Leigh Whannell, writer/director James Wan and producers Gregg Hoffman, Mark Burg and Oren Koules-comes the supernatural thriller "Silence".

Newlyweds Jamie (Kwanten) and Lisa Ashen have established a new life for themselves far from their hometown of Ravens Fair-a sleepy, near-forgotten blip on the map haunted by late-night whispers and ghost stories from generations past. But when his wife is gruesomely murdered, Jamie reluctantly returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unraveling the mystery surrounding her death.

Once back under his family's roof, reunited with his ill father (Gunton) and his father's new young bride (Valletta), Jamie begins to explore the creepy town and encounters the legend of Mary Shaw, a famous murdered ventriloquist whose presence still casts a pall over Ravens Fair. Himself the lead suspect in his wife's murder, Jamie is forced to dig deep into the town's bloody past for answers, where he soon uncovers the truth behind the curse that ended Lisa's life and threatens to take his as well.

"Dead Silence" is written by Leigh Whannell & James Wan and directed by James Wan. It stars Ryan Kwanten, Amber Valletta, Donnie Wahlberg and Bob Gunton and is produced by Gregg Hoffman, Mark Burg and Oren Koules.
