Silent House (2011) Preview

Director: Chris Kentis and Laura Lau

Writer: Laura Lau

Starring: Elizabeth Olsen, Adam Trese and Eric Sheffer Stevens

Story: Set over 88 minutes this real time thriller follows Sarah (Olsen) as she spends time at her family’s lake house. Things take a bad turn, as Sarah must survive what horrors have got into the house.

First Thoughts: Inspired on true events is a much over used selling point on movies, but from the trailer this looks like it could have a very good scare value. Being a remake of Silent House 2010, which is based on what happened in a small Uruguayan town in the 1940s, will always bring out the haters, as the American remakes of overseas films don’t reach the same level as original.


Elizabeth Olsen the third of the Olsen sisters follows her brilliant performance in ‘Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene’ with this horror thriller so we know we will get a an actress in a leading role who knows what to do. Coming out about a month after ‘Woman In Black’ you expect this will have a lot to live up to being the March horror movie. Overall it looks like a very good-looking horror thriller I can’t wait to see this myself.

Release Dates: USA: 9th March 2012
  UK: Non set yet

Expectation Level 9/10
