Directed by filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau (Open Water), Silent House employs the same aesthetic technique that Gustavo Hernández brought to the original version of the 2010 film La Casa Muda by using long takes and CGI-assisted edits - as a result the directors present the narrative as one long camera take that unfolds in real time creating a "pulse pounding scary" film.
Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) stars in this harrowing, edge-of-your-seat thriller which will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack with Ultra Violet, as well as DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on July 24, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
In the film, "Sarah, a young woman who accompanies her father (Adam Trese, 40 Days and 40 Nights) and uncle (Eric Sheffer Stevens, Julie & Julia) to their family's secluded vacation home. Shortly after arriving, however, strange calamities befall the house, and Sarah and her father become trapped inside it. With her odds of survival rapidly declining, Sarah must try to escape the house and uncover the secret behind the malevolent forces plaguing her..." Also starring Adam Trese (40 Days and 40 Nights, Zodiac) and Eric Sheffer Stevens (Julie & Julia), Silent House is an intensely visceral experience that Dan Jewel of Life & Style raves is 'unbearably suspenseful and utterly terrifying.'
