“Silent House (2012)” movie review.
Posted by MartialHorror March 19, 2012
From the creators of "Open Water" comes "Silent House", a film that boasts to be one continuous take throughout the entire film. An intriguing concept, but it wasn't enough to win over audiences and at best, it's a polarizing film. At worst, it's just a disappointing one. The more I think about it, the more I realize that this movie is "Open Water" all over again. Like that film, it can feel real and is continuously edgy, but it's also redundant and it's more cinematic moments don't gell with its attempts to be realistic. It's not a bad film. Hell, sometimes it's even a good film, but it runs out of steam long before its 85 minute run time is up.
