It’s tough to be original in the horror business, especially when filmmakers decide to do a remake of an existing film, as in the case of Silent House. Directors Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, who previously collaborated on Open Water, chose the 2010 film La Casa Muda for their next feature. Writer/director Gustavo Hernandez’s original film was based on a true story of a young woman trapped in a lakeside cottage with a killer. The selling point of the 2012 remake was meant to be a seemingly continuous shot that ran for the feature’s entire 86 minutes, but perhaps they should have focused on making a cohesive story and establishing a sense of escalation instead, as the “found footage” gimmick quickly grows stale and the script leaves our protagonist, quite literally, with nowhere to go. Hit the jump for my review of Silent House on Blu-ray.
