DVD Review: Silent House (Laura Lau, Chris Kentis, 2012)
Silent House is an independent American horror film written by Laura Lau and directed by Lau and Chris Kentis (the creators of Open Water). It is a remake of the 2010 Uruguayan film of the same name, which was allegedly based on a true incident. This tense, unnerving film delivers scares, but also features some astounding use of the camera.
Elizabeth Olsen stars as Sarah, a young woman who has returned to her family’s secluded lake house to help her father and uncle clean up the place in preparation for sale. When Sarah finds herself locked inside the house with no means of escape, her panic soon turns to terror when her situation becomes increasingly ominous and she realises she is not alone.
