All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Silent House (2012)

Starring: Elizabeth Olson, Adam Trese, Eric Sheffer Stevens
Director: Chris Kentis, Laura Lau

Premise:
A young woman helps her father and uncle clean up the old family lakeside house in the country. While there she believes the house has been invaded by intruders.

My Take:
I've seen the original and knew what to expect as far as story goes. Sort of... as this version goes to a little darker place, isn't quite as tight with logic, and changes the final up a bit. While it's not as subtle as the original the changes dont lessen the final impact too much.
If you haven't seen the original, you'll probably enjoy the twisting path the movies down. And for technical buffs worth watching based on the simply terrific camera work.
 Elizabeth Olson who shines in the lead. Another simply brilliant performance by this woman who is quickly becoming a name to watch.

Rating: In the middle
