New Motion Poster for the Horror Film SILENT HOUSE Starring Elizabeth Olsen

If you’ve seen Martha Marcy May Marlene, you are probably a fan of Elizabeth Olsen.  Her performance in that film is breathtaking, and now we’re going to see her movie from psychological horror to slightly-more conventional horror with Silent House.  However, Silent House (which, like Martha Marcy, also premiered at Sundance 2011), isn’t a standard haunted house movie.  The entire film is done (or at least made to look like it was done) in one take, and I’m interested to see if that approach adds tension or just comes off as a gimmicky.  Either way, I’m still happy to see a new film with Olsen in the lead role.

Hit the jump to check out the motion poster [Warning: it auto-plays with audio so adjust your speakers accordingly].  Silent House opens March 9th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Silent House:

SILENT HOUSE is a uniquely unsettling horror thriller starring Elizabeth Olsen as Sarah, 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 filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, SILENT HOUSE uses meticulous camera choreography to take the audience on a tension-filled, real time journey, experienced in a single uninterrupted shot.

From the directors of Open Water and starring Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), SILENT HOUSE is based on “La Casa Muda”, the official Uruguayan entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category to the 84th Academy Awards. The film releases in theaters March 9th, 2012.
