We’re happy to bring you an exclusive TV spot for the real time horror thriller Silent House today. The film stars Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) as a young woman trapped in her family’s crumbling, secluded lakeside house. The twist that makes Silent House stand out from your standard horror fare is that the movie was designed to make it look like it was shot in a single take. The story plays out in real time over 88 minutes as we follow Olsen’s character through the house, and this new TV spot makes that point very, very clear. I think it’s a fun concept for a horror film and should provide for some pretty abrupt jumps and scares.
Hit the jump to watch the spot. Directed by Open Water helmers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, Silent House opens March 9th.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 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.
