Last year, Elizabeth Olsen surprised audiences and critics alike with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene as a woman trying to escape from a cult. In Silent House, she's trying to escape from another horrific situation as she is chased throughout a house by a nasty sociopath. Set in real-time, this horror film has a premise that could easily set it apart from other films in the genre.
Although horror films are often terribly disappointing, this one has potential. With a unique format and an interesting young star headlining, Silent House could be worth checking out this weekend. Decide for yourself by watching the trailer.
