Elizabeth Silent House

Elizabeth Silent House, When we think of horror movies, we imagine low-budget, gory and, more often than not, a mindless films. However, to the surprise of many, “Silent House,” starring Elizabeth Olsen – yes, the younger sister of the famous twins – is a typical horror film that takes terror to the next level.
Sarah, her father John and John’s brother, Peter – played by Olsen, Adam Trese and Eric Sheffer Stevens, respectively – are cleaning and preparing to sell an old family vacation home on a secluded lake. Since the family hasn’t used the house much in the past years, it has become an easy target for squatters and vandals, resulting in the addition of boards on all windows, entrances and, consequently, the exits.
When Peter leaves with the car, John responds to a noise he hears upstairs. Lantern in hand, he ventures upstairs and doesn’t return. Worried, Sarah goes upstairs to look for her father. Soon enough, Sarah begins to realize her life has become a living nightmare and that she is not alone in the house.
“Silent House,” much like many of today’s horror and suspense films, has a tendency to play off shadows, trickery and other scare tactics to instill some level of fright.
However, this is where the comparisons end. “Silent House” isn’t your typical horror film, because everything is filmed in real time and often from the perspective of Sarah.
