Hush: Takes a stale sub-genre and does something with it
The slasher genre was at it's peak in the 80's, when the 90's came it began to struggle and in this guys opinion it's never fully recovered. Sure every once in a while a high profile slasher movie pops up but the interest never seems to last.
I'd say a primary reason is that they're all the same but that could be said about a lot of horror sub-genres.
Here we have the story of a mute/deaf author who lives out secluded in the forest and you guessed it she falls foul of a masked killer.
The fact she's deaf actually adds more of an element to the movie than you'd imagine and though Hush suffers from the same Slasher tropes as every other it manages to stay fresh regardless.
Well shot, well written and well acted by both little known leads I came away from Hush very satisfied. Sure it's nothing revolutionary but it didn't need to be, it's a demonstration that slashers still have life left in them.
The pets role in the film
Some well crafted moments
Both leads were excellent
