The Silent House gets an American makeover

Yet another film that has been "re-imagined". The film that this is based on was made for $6,000 and a couple of days to film. We reviewed that film when it hit DVD last August. The film is described as "one continuous 88 minute take". However, it seems that his take is actually a cleverly eddied set of 10 minute sections and probably for a lot more than the original cost to make.

To watch this video, you need the latest Flash-Player and active javascript in your browser.

In Silent House, Sarah, along with her uncle and father, prepare their long-time family summer home, recently violated by squatters, for sale. But broken windows and cracks in the plaster are the least of their problems when they discover they are not alone and there’s more than just mold concealed behind the walls. Over the course of 85 harrowing minutes, their idyllic isolated retreat is transformed into a site of horror as the family’s past returns to taunt then terrorize them, exposing a hidden and distorted history.

 Silent House, a re-imagining of the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda, is told in real time in one continuous take, just as Sarah sees – and experiences – it.
Silent House is released in cinemas on 4th May 2012.
