‘The Silent House’ Brings Horror To Sundance

Writer/Director Chris Kentis and Producer Laura Lau brought something wholly new to the world of horror when they released Open Water in 2004.

The possibilities for something like this are endless, and like every other film of the modern time, adds the hook of being “based on true events.” [STYD]
