Once it gets to it's routine plot twist it goes seriously downhill!

'SILENT HOUSE': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

American remake of the 2010 Uruguayan film, of the same name, about a young woman attacked in her families' vacation house. It's said to be based on a true story from the 1940's. Chris Kentis and Laura Lau directed the film and Lau also wrote the screenplay. The same team also did the 2003 low budget horror hit 'OPEN WATER'. The film is somewhat effective and scary, at first, but once it gets to it's routine plot twist it goes seriously downhill.

Elizabeth Olsen stars in the film as Sarah, a young woman staying with her father (Adam Trese) and uncle (Eric Sheffer Stevens) at their vacation house in the country while they clean it up in order to sell it. When the uncle leaves to go into town an unseen assailant attacks Sarah's father and then chases Sarah throughout the house. Sarah tries to flee and run for help while avoiding the intruders. The entire thing is played out in real time.

The movie starts out pretty sow-paced but gets pretty creepy and intense as it goes on. The real time effect is one of the film's greatest assets while also being one of it's biggest weaknesses. It's pretty scary at times but also really boring. Once the movie gets to it's big twist (like I said) it loses any real thrills or viewer involvement it had going for it. A mediocre film at best.

Good one

Directors Chris Kentis and Laura Lau give us a story about a young woman, Sarah, who is sealed inside her family's secluded lake house. With no way out, events become terrifying. The direction was fine and all of the suspense points seem to be there, albeit a bit predictable. I'm not sure who to credit whenever there is two, sometimes three, directors on board.

The cast had fine actors involved including Adam Trese, Elizabeth Olsen, Eric Sheffer Stevens, Julia Taylor Ross. Elizabeth Olsen did a good job and it doesn't hurt that she is nice to look at.

Interesting camera work on this movie. There seems to be a lot of static shots, that work most of the time. I'm sure that these are choices that the director (s) made and I applaud them for making choices and sticking to them.

This is a story based on a concept that is not very original, but what is important is the execution.

Would I recommend it? I'm not sure if this is for everyone. Some may pick it apart just a little too much. For my, I enjoyed it for what it was.

People are far too critical of this film

This is a good film. People have complained heavily about the lack of character explanation, which I do realise is conventionally the basis to any decent story, BUT I feel this film is due credit for its unconventional approach in editing, filming and character placement.

I watch a lot of horrors, searching for anything that doesn't hit upon cliche after cliche and I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It wasn't a typical 'in your face' horror, but was tense, creepy and unpredictable until the twist. Despite not being completely original in overall plot, I can easily imagine its approach to film making leaving a legacy for future filmmakers.

The camera work was clever, the acting good and overall experience was enjoyable. It was a complete mind f*ck of a film until the twist. That's how I like my films. So thumbs up all round.

Definitely would recommend this to anyone that can appreciate the fact that a film can be scary without ridiculous amount of blood, gore and stereotypical characters.

Anyway, Enjoy fellow film lovers!
