Dead Silence is a film that is hard to watch, but I kept on watching anyway. Three girls (played by Carrie Mitchum, Renee Estevez, and Lisanne Falk) go on spring break to Palm Springs, and they accidentally run down a homeless drifter in the middle of the desert.

The girls have different ideas on what to do about their predicament, and how they proceed will test their friendship and ultimately affect it forever.

This movie has a solid plot, great score, and great locations. Estevez, Falk, and Mitchum give equally powerful performances, and the ending is one I did not expect at all. See this one. 10/10
