Storyline

The Silent Thief is a psychological thriller that examines familial bonds, the human need to belong and the thin line between sanity and insanity. Brennan Marley is an outcast drifter who threatens to destroy a family's unity by displacing their biological son, Mike Henderson, while he is away at college. Hungry for acceptance and exceptionally cunning, Brennan becomes a boarder at the Henderson family's beach home under false pretenses. Claiming that he is an orphan from England, Brennan uses his manipulative prowess to ingratiate himself with each member of the Henderson family before Mike returns home from college for Christmas vacation. As Brennan's tactics become increasingly pernicious, psyches are driven to the breaking point, long buried family secrets are revealed and violence ensues. Written by Anonymous

The Silent Thief
28 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film has been called a psychological thriller, for psychological, read slow. It is also clearly low budget because it takes place in just three locations: two dwellings and the beach. The theme will be familiar to people who watch these types of films, "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" is broadly similar, the stranger who invades a home by stealth and gradually morphs into one of its residents while tearing it apart.

In this case a slightly odd young Englishman turns up at a house where he rents a room; he has a camera, but is he really a photographer? There is no real explanation about what he is doing on the West Coast of America, he has no apparent means, and what is there for him here? The mother likes him; the father doesn't; the daughter ends up in bed with him; the son doesn't like him at all, but Brennan is not too bothered because he has found out college boy Mike's big secret, he bats for the opposition and has the hots for a slightly older local who works out with him. Gee, not even his Mom suspected?

Brennan uses this weakness to try to drive a wedge between Mike and his parents hoping to take his place. Can such a fiendish plot really succeed? If you manage to last the first hour, you might not care.
