Chris Kentis and Laura Lau (Open Water) return to terra firma for this remake of the "real time" Uruguayan thriller La Casa Muda. Their summer cottage vandalized by squatters during the off-season, Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen), her father, and her uncle begin the laborious process of cleaning the place up when noises from within hint they are not alone. Now the deeper Sarah ventures into the derelict building, the further the secrets of her dark past are dragged out into the light. As with La Casa Muda, Silent House was shot in one continuous take, a production style that allows the viewer to experience the swelling tension of Sarah's horror firsthand as she unlocks a diabolical mystery. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This movie was very slow and made little sense until about 2/3 of the way through. If the movie started at the 2/3 point and expanded on that perspective it could have been great... but it didn't so I have to say, "don't waste your time."
I didn't hate it, but... honestly, aspects of this movie made no sense and I had a hint of what the "mystery" was WAY before it was revealed in the end. When the movie was over, I was disappointed, and wished I'd rented something else.
