Great suspense. I originally bought the movie because Eric Sheffer Stevens was in it (Just love him in anything he does) but was pleasantly surprised with the story. Great movie to watch with the lights turned low and under the couch-blanket so you can hide your eyes at the surprises throughout the movie.

HASH(0x9afe8b34) out of 5 stars Excellent direction and acting by Elizabeth Olsen make this movie a winner!! May 31 2012
By Ivan Closhnovitz XVIII - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I saw this movie last night on pay per view in my hotel and I only watched it based on the merits of young Elizabeth Olsen, after being very impressed by her fine performance in "Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene". Quite frankly I didn't know what to expect and my expectations were not that high. I've seen lots of indie horror movies that try real hard but end up falling short on the chills, often resorting to haggard, old plot devices to try and scare the audience. I am not easily scared and the vast majority of horror movies coming out today, fail, time and time again to scare me to any great extent.

Such was NOT the case with "Silent House". This movie pulls you in from the opening frames with Elizabeth Olsen sitting on a rock by the ocean. Miss Olsen is classically beautiful and is proving herself to be a very talented actor. As she is drawn into the big, dark, sinister house, there is an overwhelming feeling of dread that permeates this atmospheric little chiller and the viewer is soon gripped as Miss Olsen's character is terrorized by bumps in the night, fleeting shadows, ghostly images and the knowledge that after her father is attacked and rendered unconscious by an unseen assailant, she is not alone in the big lonely house, then the spine-tingling suspense gets kicked up several notches to full out terror. But this is just the beginning. As the tale unfolds we are served up a very troubling plot twist that leaves the viewer stunned.

Elizabeth Olsen, the younger, as yet less famous, but (in my opinion), more talented sister of twin child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is a rising star and I hope to see her more in the future. She has all the potential to become a Hollywood A-lister as you will see when you watch "Silent House."

HASH(0xa16d808c) out of 5 stars A scary movie with a twist. April 10 2012
By Robert G. Splaine Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
A young woman who is moving out of an old home with her father begins seeing and hearing unexplained things. She is extremely frightened as she runs from whatever or whoever may be lurking. Featuring the highly talented Elizabeth Olsen, this movie is quite scary up until the final minutes when the story takes an unexpected turn. This is when the film loses something, but it does distinguish it as more than just a standard horror film. I found the movie very frightening and unpredictable. Liz Olsen is such a talent, she is able to project true fright throughout, and the film is able to maintain this until the surprising conclusion. Overall, this is a solid effort in the horror genre.

HASH(0x9bfa2d74) out of 5 stars Silent House US version May 23 2012
By spcordell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I happened to catch the original Uruguayan Silent House just by chance flipping through channels on late night TV. I was captivated. I'm a complete Horror freak, and the movie kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. I LOVED the continuous camera sweep (ala Russian Ark), and the acting was superb. I don't scare easily, and I rarely jump at the typical scares in horror flicks, but this movie got the best of me a few times. After watching it, I immediately logged on to Amazon to order the original Uruguayan movie.

Sure as anything, I soon found out that there was a US remake coming out. As far as I'm concerned, there is very little talent in Hollywood, and it's a common trend to just remake popular movies to cash in on their success. I was very skeptical, but because I loved the original, I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed.

Elizabeth Olsen is not of the same strain of her twin sisters who have ridden the wave of their childhood fame for being cute babies. She actually acts in Silent House, and very well. Even though I had seen the original, and I knew what to expect, I still jumped...several times.

Excellent acting, a great creepy story, and wonderful camera work. Naturally the pompous Hollywood director thought he could improve on the original version by slightly changing the storyline (the Uruguayan version was fine the way it was), but even with the changes, the movie was excellent. From the acting, the creepy basement scene, to the music used to set the mood...excellent remake of an already great movie.

I suggest watching both to compare.

HASH(0x9eeb0d80) out of 5 stars point of view suspense.. March 17 2012
By James C. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
just saw the movie last night in Tuscaloosa. The film is in essence the story of a father, and his daughter who go to the country to restore an old family home in hopes of selling it.

without giving away spoiler plot points, the daughter and father become trapped in the house and must find a way to survive and get out of the house alive.

the film reminded me of "The Blair Witch Project" which was released in 1999, in that the camera style is "point of view" perspective (long continuous takes, camera follows the actors around) and you are "right there" with the actors. This too was more recently done with the film "Cloverfield". This type of filming (P.O.V.) works particularly well with horror or suspense type films, because is gives the audience a claustrophobic emotional feel, which creates fear and tension. The sounds effects were well done; where a knock on the door, a thud from the attic, or something being smashed in the cellar notches up the fear considerably.

so if you enjoyed those other two mentioned films, you will like the feel of this one. Elizabeth Olsen gives an electric performance as the terrified, tormented victim. Very satisfying performance. A talent to watch for in the years to come.

HASH(0xa16d8068) out of 5 stars A difficult little horror movie. Sept. 15 2012
By Brian Nallick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This is a hard movie to review without putting spoilers in here but I'll try.
The movie only did so-so with the critics but the acting was praised so I figured...why not, I've seen so many horror films that were so bad I had to shut them off.
This one was pretty good but VERY difficult.
Not difficult in the normal sense but difficult in the "Huh???" sense.
Here's the set up.
A young woman, her dad and her uncle go to the families house in the woods.
Typical spooky old house that's in horrible shape and has been vandalized repeatedly over the years.
They're trying to fix it up to sell it.
Sure enough a gang of vandals show up and start to terrorize the family.
Here is the difficult part of the film and why I had a somewhat hard time making it to the end.
The woman in the film simply does EVERY single cliche to be found in horror films.
From hiding under the bed, to hiding under the pool table, knowing full well the bad guys knew she was under there. The whole time with a perpetually frozen scream on her face.
Honestly?
By the mid mark of the film I wanted to run up and smack her.
FIGHT BACK LADY!!!
Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th. all had strong female characters that fought back.
However...a little past the mid mark of the film the story reveals itself to be something else alltogether.
And this is where it's hard not to spoil.
I think they meant it as an act III twist but it was rather obvious what was really going on.
It was still a good twist and was much better than the usual "home invasion" type movie.
Everything she was doing from hiding under the bed and every other ridiculous thing she did suddenly made sense.
Not really a horror movie but a psychological drama that is very demanding of your attention.
You'll roll your eyes frequently but the payoff is at the end.
To summarize...
Excellent direction.
Amazing acting.
A good but not great story that manages to avoid the majority of horrors short comings.
I recommend a rental.
