Storyline

Giving birth to her first child should be a time of happiness for Rachel, but the dream is shattered when she learns that her newborn baby has died during the night. Despite the sympathetic overtures, Rachel is convinced things aren't what they seem and suspects her baby has been abducted. Certain that there's only one way to find out the truth, Rachel returns to the hospital. Here she encounters the menacing Dennis Betts and in an attempt to flee from him, she ís forced to hide in a car belonging to Daniel Stone, a hospital porter. Initially reluctant to help, Daniel's conscience eventually gets the better of him. The plot thickens further with the death of Rachel's best friend Annie and the discovery that Dennis Betts is actually a policeman, with his own very personal reasons for pursuing Rachel. As Rachel and Daniel race through London's nightscape, desperate to stay one step ahead of Betts, every discovery unleashes further hell, extending way beyond the disappearance of Rachel's...

My Review Of "Silent Cry"
21 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Julian Richards' "Silent Cry" is a slow-burn, crime noir. The film follows a single mother who battles forces beyond her control to get back the newborn son taken from her. It is a stark look into the underworld of crime, cradled in the shadowy life of the destitute and street walker. People who are at the mercy of those above them in society with the power to manipulate and exploit. The film is a pulled back melodrama foregoing the theatrics and over-the-top elements that Richards has shown in earlier films. Instead "Silent Cry" is a more emotional, heartfelt thriller that seems to bring a chilling light into a corrupt aspect of modern society. Although the film is not a supernatural thriller, nor does it deal with the occult, "Silent Cry" still maintains a haunting, almost macabre atmosphere steeped in surrealism.

The cinematography is well thought out and visceral, focusing more on the human connection between the characters. The sound effects offer a eerie sense of unease that is chilling. The characters are well rounded and tenable. The story of "Silent Cry" is a somber, disturbing tale of conspiracy, exploitation and corruption that manages to make the viewer feel the helplessness and despair of the main character, "Rachel Stewart". It is also a story that is ripped from modern times and haunts the alleyways and doorsteps of urban legend-the stolen child from the hospital nursery.

"Silent Cry" is a true, thrilling film that should appeal to anyone longing for mature crime noir storytelling. It is well shot, well acted and maintains a strong continuity from start to finish. The over-all effect of the film is a more subdued suspenseful tale that is just as horrifying as any. This was a film that I had not seen before and I am glad to have seen. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and found it to be a true modern classic.
