‘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. Six years later, they are hitting Sundance with a new thriller called The Silent House that features a young girl and her father spending the night in a house where a mysterious noise continues to grow louder and louder.

It’s an English-language remake of the little-seen 2010 film of the same name, and while it will have a lot to prove to audiences in Utah, the simplistic concept is a great draw. 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]
