A Claustrophobic and Sadistic Tale
15 July 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Chuck Spillers (Brian Cox) is released from prison, he tells his wife Annie (Elaine Donnelly) that he had been visited by an old man, Martin Blueck (Peter Cushing), along his sentence for robbing a safe, and Blueck had given some money for him to help a fresh start in life. On the next morning, Chuck pays a visit to Blueck in his pet shop to thank the support and is invited to work for him feeding his animals in his private zoo while he is traveling. Blueck explains that he trains animals, conditioning then to obey some signals. A couple of days later, Chuck sees a safe in the store, and decide to open it, being trapped in a weird situation and disclosing the truth about Brueck.

"The Silent Scream" is a claustrophobic and sadistic tale about a man afraid to lose his freedom and his captor. The story is intriguing and long, with many twists. Sometimes I had the impression that the film was ending, but actually there was a new plot point. The central trio – Cushing, Cox and Donnelly – has great performances in this attractive good tale. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Casa do Terror 3: Grito Silencioso" ("The Houses of Terror 3: Silent Scream")
