07/24/2012 – ‘Silent House,’ ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi,’ ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ and ‘Footnote’

Silent House

Elizabeth Olsen star in an unsettling real-time horror thriller inspired by true events and experienced in a single, uninterrupted shot. Sarah is a young woman who finds herself sealed inside her family's secluded lake house. With no contact to the outside world, and no way out, panic turns to terror as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house. Directed by Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, and based on the acclaimed 2010 Uruguayan horror film 'La Casa Muda,' the film uses meticulous camera choregraphy to tell a unique, edge-of-your-seat story of suspense.
