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 from Rotten Tomatoes
A scary, yet thoughtful - some might even say deep - art-house frightfest.Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 03.08.2012
Sometimes you don't want to know what is lurking in the dark because the answer is just too obvious and dumb.Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 03.08.2012
It's not hard to guess the source of her horror, and so the film's most interesting aspects are its gimmicks rather than its frights.Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 03.08.2012
Paranormal Activity has been here before, of course, but Silent House springs tangy new tricks, and Olsen is a primo scream queen.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 03.08.2012
