A horror movie that plays out in real time, presented as one meticulous, uninterrupted cut, SILENT HOUSE is by the innovative and twisted directors who brought us OPEN WATER. Elizabeth Olsen, who stunned audiences with her performance in MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, plays Sarah, a young woman trapped inside her family's remote lake house. Sarah quickly realizes she is not alone in the house, and the tension quickly mounts in this riveting horror film inspired by true events. 83 minutes of terror in Sarah's life is translated to 83 minutes of terror onscreen, and the audience is given no reprieve by camera cuts or narrative breaks. (Meredith Borders)

"Practically a master class in how to tell a spooky-house story."--Eric D. Snider, FILM.COM

"I'll be damned if after 30 minutes of Silent House my heart rate wasn't up.  After 60 minutes I was actually shouting out in startled terror.  By minute 75 of this 86 minute film I actually muttered, "that's it" and put my hands over my eyes."--Jordan Hoffman, UGO

"The type of horror film that will build a substantial unscalable wall between those who love it and those who hate it, although even the latter group should be able to appreciate it for the incredible craft at work."--Edward Douglas, SHOCK TILL YOU DROP
