MIFF review 2010: The Silent House

26 Jul

Looking for trouble

An impressively executed and engaging horror film from South America (shot on a digital SLR, ostensibly in one take on a budget of $6000). Manages to gets you on the jumps, with the tension well setup -our audience was getting very vocal. However it’s not quite creepy enough where it aspires to be, the characters aren’t setup enough for you to actually care about them and the plot and ending are a very muddled and ineffective. A worthy achievement nonetheless. **1/2
