Silent House stars Elizabeth Olson stars in this “horror” thriller as a young lady who finds herself sealed inside her family’s secluded lake house and trying to find her way out. She starts to panic and it turns into a very ominous scene in and around the house. The movie tries to take you on a suspense and tension filled journey by shooting it real-time in one single shot.
This movie is an average thriller with a twist that can be seen a mile away. The end is something that makes your skin crawl but if you paid attention from the beginning, you already saw it coming. It’s not really scary although there are some parts that will make you jump out of your seat. As average as this movie is, Elizabeth Olsen’s is not. She turns out a pretty good performance with what she is given to work with. I like her and hope she keeps getting more work. If you have not seen her 2011 breakout role in Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene, check it out. It’s a wonderful movie.
Silent House is in theaters this Friday.
