Once it gets to it's routine plot twist it goes seriously downhill!, 15 May 2012
Author: Hellmant from United States

'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.
