      Critics Consensus

      Silent House is more technically proficient and ambitious than most fright-fests, but it also suffers from a disappointing payoff. Read critic reviews

      Movie Info

      Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) is working with her father (Adam Trese) and uncle (Eric Sheffer Stevens) to renovate an old family home to prepare it for sale. Long vacant, the house has no utilities, forcing the trio to rely on battery-operated lanterns to light their way. Sarah becomes separated from her relatives and soon finds she is trapped inside the cabin, with no contact with the outside world. Panic turns to real terror as the young woman experiences events that become increasingly ominous.

        Called 95% of the ending within the first 5 minutes, and boy did I hate that camera work. But I managed to make it through the 87 minute runtime more or less unscathed, mostly thanks to lead peformer Elizabeth Olsen.

        Starts off well, then an extremely long middle part which drags on. At this point nearly gave up on it as it's so dark and blocky onscreen (and this is on a Blu Ray copy) and seems to just be non stop close ups of Elizabeth Olsen looking terrified (admittedly effectively). Glad I preserved. I didn't see the twist coming and it really lifted it beyond what I assumed I was watching.

        Silent House is a film I want to rate higher on account of the lead performance and interesting directing. However, it lacks substance and suspense. The film is too cerebral and telegraphs the ending so the tension is gone too early. Still, Silent House is different and worth a view.

        Enjoyable for about halfway through, until it completely derails with a twist that is hugely silly and random. Elizabeth Olsen is great and the camera work is occasionally brilliant. I'm frustrated that it had to turn into a psychological/ abuse-rape tale. Rating: 47
