[4.00/10] Silent House (2012)

Silent House (2012)

QuickRating: Shot with a single camera, and in one take, just like the original 2010 Uruguayan movie, "Silent House" relies mostly on Elizabeth Olsen's fairly convincing performance, who manages to care the entire movie on her shoulders, but its creators fail to capture the creepy tone of "La casa muda", and as a result, this remake ends up being a messy, boring nonsense with weak scares, zero thrills, and a hugely anti-climatic final act, that leaves the viewer confused.

This one didn't look promising from the beginning.

Alex, the original move itself wasn't that good either.

I want to see this. I think it looks fantastic and I've been hearing good things about it. I've heard it was tons better than the original and Elizabeth is superb. Still, since you've pointed out a few things,I will watch with a bit more wariness. :)

Mel, believe me, this ain't half as good as the original. If it wasn't for Elizabeth, it would have been atrocious.
