Because the main character is deaf and mute, the film contains less than 15 minutes of dialogue, meaning that more than 70 minutes occur without a single word spoken. See more »
When John tells the killer Maddie would have been unable to call 911 because she is deaf and mute, this is incorrect for several reasons. Most importantly, emergency response services are equipped to communicate with a deaf/mute person. Even if for some reason Maddie.was not able to "speak" with an actual operator, they would still have sent someone to investigate the call. See more »
I say let's not be harsh like the people with attention span problems are. For that year , it was probably the best horror.
Now the director and his gorgeous wife collab on a great setting and story. However the antagonist is quite the pooper the moment he reveals himself, not great with his demeanor lacking menace. He could be a good actor now but this film could have used a wrecked looking fella.
Love the struggle bits of Katie trying to outsmart him although some parts seemed to aid her momentary escapes. The cool moments are there but the crucial ones could be excecuted or shot at different angles to enhance the trick up either sleeves of the two. It seemed okay, but big moments should have been created better. Good flick not bad at all.
