Silent House

Rock! Shock! Pop!
21 July 2012
  • Excerpt: A loose remake of a 2010 film from Uruguay entitled La Casa Muda, 2012’s Silent House pulls as much influence from Hitchcock’s Rope as it does from recent South American horror films like [REC] or those that have followed in its wake in that it’s put together in such a way as to convince the...

Silent House (2011)

High-Def Digest
17 July 2012
  • Summary: I originally thought that 'Silent House' was a purely gimmick-driven horror movie that uses it's single-take status as a crutch. While I was correct about the film not reaching great heights, it was never because of the seemingly single-take; the demise of this film is the resolution to its...

Silent House (2011)

  • Conclusion: Silent House doesn't serve up compelling characters or an engrossing scary story, deliver a competent twist or a satisfying ending, or elicit the unease, instability or sheer terror Olsen brings to her performance.

Silent House

Cinema Blend
9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Death and the dark are two of the most common fears simply because they are fear of the same thing: the unknown. That’s why it’s so hard do develop a satisfying ending to a horror film – once the terror is explained, it is no longer terrifying.

  • Excerpt: Something's just a little off in the opening scenes of Chris Ketnis and Laura Lau's Silent House --not in the execution, but in the events they're capturing. A young woman named Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) is at her family's lake house.

Silent House

AV Club
8 March 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s almost certainly no horror-movie situation hoarier than a woman trapped alone in an old, dark house, but there’s a reason it remains deathless: It works. Do it right, and the audience is right there with the heroine, feeling just as scared as she is of whatever dread presence waits just...

  • Summary: "Silent House" twists camera and narrative alike, but repulses more than it scares.

  • Conclusion: It works as a suspense-building scare machine, given heart and depth by Olsen’s performance — though it’s still an effective exercise in misdirection rather than a strikingly original vision, and now it’s a remake of an effective exercise in misdirection.

Silent House (2011)

Filmofiel
3 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Het regisserende stel achter het behoorlijk angstaanjagende Open Water komt nu met zo’n horrorfilm waar veel jonge vrouwelijke actrices zich in moeten ‘bewijzen’, en in dit geval is het Silent House , over een jonge vrouw in een huis dat meer is dan enkel een huis, of toch niet?
