Dive into three dark, disturbing, and intense clips from Gustavo Hernandez’s spooky “The Silent House”, billed as “the first horror film in the world that discovers fear without tricks in one sequence of 78 minutes”. Basically, the whole thing takes place in one long, continuous shot, minus any editing tricks. Which, let’s face it, is pretty damn impressive. The film already has an American remake playing the festival circuits, but don’t let that stop you from peeking at the original first. And if you’re interested, we already have two reviews of the film online. Check out James Mudge’s review here, then Todd Rigney’s take here.
Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) settle down in a cottage they have to fix up since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there and start repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down.
“The Silent House” will be available on demand via Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House.
