Story


From the directors of the hit film "Open Water," "Silent House" is a uniquely unsettling horror thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen as Sarah, a young woman who finds herself sealed inside her family's secluded lake house. With no contact to the outside world, and no way out, panic turns to terror to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house. Directed by filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, "Silent House" uses meticulous camera choreography to take the audience on a tension-filled, real time journey, experienced in a single uninterrupted shot.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..for 88 minutes, Olsen rivets our attention, and the camera's, so fiercely it verges on unbearable..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
“..shot mostly in annoying close-ups, the blurry camerawork from drunken hand-held video cams doesn't add chills..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..the proportion of masochism to catharsis, so crucial to the strange pleasure to be found in horror films, is skewed far more to the masochistic side of things..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
